'Spellbinding tales of fearsome beasts, terrifying creatures and magical monsters' My son's of an age where he laps this stuff at the moment; the stories are short and not difficult to read, the books is full of bright colorful pictures with the added bonus of pop out's on some pages and there's even a game when you get to the end! Perfect for a bedtime read or just leave them with it for guaranteed peace and quiet, though you might just be missing out if you do that.

Mythical Creatures by James Harpur was a fascinating book about fictional monsters. It includes over 25 biographies of monsters including: Cyclops, Bigfoot, Reptoid alien, and much more! The book talks about the parts of the monster's bodies and the stories about them.
