Apart from some questionable organization choices across the varying books ("Monsters" and "Giants" have noticeable overlap, and some monsters could feasibly be dragons) and a tendancy to favor Greek and British lore, the books are an interesting review of fantastic creatures from stories around the world.

My primary concerns with the series as a whole:

1. All of the stories are refered to as myths--whether or not they actually belong to that genre. A myth is a specific type of story. It may sha

This is a 32-page book meant for younger readers. It covers a wide variety of fairies and includes a lot of artwork and a few real photos. Topics include Rumpelstiltskin, goblins, Rip Van Winkle, elves and even some classical mythology.

It's also yet another book written for young people that I find quite well done. It presents a lot of information in a way that is enjoyable to read and is also willing to shoot down a fake event when it's relevant. Quite worth getting.

This is probably the best book in the series. The author tries to show and explain the different types of fairies and the characteristics of each. The illustrations are nice, but the text layout is still extremely confusing for young readers. There are much better books out there on this topic. I'd pass this book by.

The book seems scattered and really never focuses on one subject very long. The way the text is laid out can be confusing for young readers. There are much better books out there on dragons so in my opinion, I'd pass this one by.
