  • Strange beasts of all kinds have crawled, run, swam and flown through humanity’s imagination and travellers’ tales since the dawn of time. From Gryphons and Unicorns, to Dragons, Mermaids and even more bizarre and fantastical animals, A Wizard’s Bestiary takes you on a magical journey through the ages and around the world, to discover elusive creatures of myth and legend. Beware here be Monsters!

    The first section lists over 1,000 fantastic creatures from every land in an encyclopaedic, alphabetical glossary format, from Aatxe to Zyphoeus. Each entry includes a small illustration, as well as cross-references to other related beasts. Next, the authors present more in-depth features on some of more interesting of these legendary beasts, such as the Sea Serpent and the Man-Eating Tree of Madagascar. History, myths and legends of each creature are presented, with particular emphasis on identifying real-life origins of mythical creatures in actual living animals, such as the link between the Kraken and the giant squid.
