From the West African fable of Anansi the Spider, to Michabo, the magical hare who rebuilt the world and Tanuki, the sweet but troublesome raccoon-dog of Japanese folklore, Mythopedia is an encyclopedia of mythical creatures that covers legends, tales and myths from around the world.
Lovingly created by the illustration duo behind popular flipbook Myth Match, Good Wives and Warriors, this book contains pages upon pages of cultural folklore from around the world.
Let these weird and wonderful creatures spark your child’s imagination for their own storytelling and drawing while teaching them about international cultures.
This book is filled with stunningly beautiful illustrations, and easy to enjoy stories of mythological creatures from around the world. It is sorted by world regions and tackles a range of beasts from the deadly to the helpful.
The stories are approachable for a late elementary or early middle-grade reader to enjoy on their own. However, the illustrations are so lovely that a younger child could absolutely enjoy the book with a parent-reader helping.
