Abstract:

"Enter an incredible world of magical beasts, dare to draw near to their captivating powers, and discover the spellbinding stories of sixteen favorite mythical creatures from around the world. Venture into this world and you'll discover why griffins collect a gem called agate, how to put out dragonfire, how mischievous elves can cause terrible nightmares, and much, much more. Magnificent Magical Beasts is a beautiful, luxurious gift book showcasing a fascinating menagerie of creatures from the world's timeless mythologies and legends. Presented in an incredible package with spectacular cover finishes, it is sure to be treasured by fantasy enthusiasts. Each beast is beautifully illustrated with rich, enchanting artworks, accompanied by amazing facts about each. Five feature spreads take a different approach to a particular beast - including a gleaming guide to the world's dragons and an enchanting introduction to elf spells and tricks. Imaginative flourishes such as a cutaways showing constellations (see where Pegasus's story ends) and a die-cut linking the lustrous feathers of the phoenix with those of the terrifying harpies make this a truly inspiring exploration of some wonderfully strange creatures. The full list of beasts includes phoenixes, harpies, griffins, Pegasi, dragons, elves, unicorns, centaurs, mermaids and mermen, werewolves, trolls, sphinxes, basilisks, Cerberuses, giants, and chimeras"--
