Monstrous Tales

Stories of Strange Creatures and Fearsome Beasts

ISBN: 9781452182599 (HB - E)

A mysterious wolf pursues a bridegroom through a dark forest. A princess is trapped in a monster's body. A dragon is coming, with a storm in its wake. This collection of traditional folktales crawls with bewitching and bloodthirsty creatures. As readers roam from Japan to Nigeria and Ireland to Guyana, they'll witness deadly pacts, heroic feats and otherworldly journeys. Translated and transcribed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, these tales celebrate the diversity of (and surprising resonances among) folklore traditions around the world. Each story is paired with spellbinding contemporary art by Chinese illustrator Sija Hong in this special illustrated edition, complete with an embossed, textured case and a ribbon marker.
