Each year they have a rack of books based on the summer reading lists from local schools along with a binder with info from each school.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Whereas Pirateology looks wonderfully piratey whatever page you open it at, and Egyptology looks all things Egyptian and archaeological, Monsterology is neither one thing nor the other; and certainly not Edwardian. I will (most likely) not be rating all of the "ology" books I will be reading, because that would end up being a lot of ratings lol (especially since I also checked some out from the library). This was a highly entertaining book that discussed many common mythological monsters, as well as those that are still commonly talked about today such as kraken's and sea serpents. Monsterology The Complete Book of Monstrous Beasts" by Ernest Drake is, a fictional children's book about about fictional monsters including unicorns, griffins, the kraken, etc.

The conceit of the book is that it's a facsimile of one published in 1904 but - to my untrained eye at least - the illustrations of the fantastical beasts themselves do nothing to evoke the period. To a younger generation, however, I imagine that "ology" will instantly bring to mind Dugald Steer's series of extraordinary books.His record includes beasts of the earth, water, air, and semi-human creatures found around the world, drawing from the mythology of myriad cultures and presenting his findings as fact.

The purple, man-eating, burrowing giant worm known as the Mongolian death worm," for example, is fake according to Dr. My only regret is that because of how many species there are and how short the book is, it couldn't go into greater detail about the races. I would give "Monsterology The Complete Book of Monstrous Beasts" by Ernest Drake a 4-star review because, 1; I really like the illustrations and the information 2; I like how the author covers various creatures 3; I honestly forgot that these creatures are fictional while reading which I loved but 4; I really wish that is was longer and there were more information in this book. While the 15 monsters profiled come from the Western tradition, their homes range from ancient Egypt to Russia to Haiti, with an occasional nod to Asian and North American native traditions as well. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.You even get to open Pandora's box, and there's a little pouch containing facsimiles of the oak leaves of the Oracle. He had absolutely no doubt that dragons exist, and his notes suggest that he had no little experience of them. Monsterology, the study of fabulous beasts other than Dragons, was originally considered a branch of Wizardology rather than a field in its own right. A companion to Dragonology, Monsterology is a study of the many supposedly mythical beasts that inhabit our world.

This is a used book - there is no escaping the fact it has been read by someone else and it will show signs of wear and previous use. The publisher informs us, via subtle hinting, who is or isn't real through publisher's notes - in various guises - at the beginning of each book. Wayne Andersen has been illustrating in his colour pencil style for over 40 years and is renowned for his playful imagination and fantastic imagery.The book was part textbook style, talking about the creatures lives, diets, health and more, and part travel guide where the monsterologist discusses his travels looking for these monsters. Several jobs later Dugald began working at Templar Publishing, where he worked his way up to Senior Editor, writing and editing many books in house. The fictitious "Dr Ernest Drake" is back from Dragonology to guide us through this extraordinary world.
