Greece! Rome! Monsters!

Greece! Rome! Monsters!

John Harris

What’s a phoenix? Who is Pan? Why are you giving me a basilisk gaze and what is a basilisk in the first place? The answers to these questions can be found in this book, written for children (and grown-ups!) who have a taste for ancient spookiness. All kinds of mythological monsters appear here, and each of them is superbly illustrated by Calef Brown. With a bonus pronunciation guide and a special quiz to help you test your knowledge of these flying, swimming, and creeping classical creatures.
