Ultimate Expeditions Mythological Beasts is a gorgeous, factual picture book that begs to be read over and over again - I was really impressed with the quality of this book. The pictures are all wonderful, and even though they have different mediums - beautifully drawn realistic color illustrations, pencil drawings, computer graphics and photographs - they all fit well together.

Griffin, Ogopogo, Yowie, Hydra ...

Each two-page creature section has a map inset where in the world the ideas of the mythological creature originated and intensified. There is a world map in the back showing the creature's 'homelands.' THis is an interesting read for me, and with the consistently high demand of books on mythology and mythological creatures and fairy tales in the library, I am certain this will be a popular read. This book has the potential to be a classic, and certainly is a book that children will not grow tired of as they age.

Chupacabra, Chimera, Catoblepas, Long...

Highly recommended for everyone to read, and as a gift for children, or any other fan of Mythological Creatures and Mythology.

Join budding archaeologist Kimberly Raleigh as she turns to history and investigates mythic beasties from around the world in her efforts to understand some unusual pottery fragments she unearthed at a North American site.

Tracosas’ Ultimate Expeditions: Mythological Beasts explores mythic critters from all over the world. Each entry has location info, and tidbits related to the myths surrounding the beast in question. Some mention related creatures, while others discuss real-life animals that may have given rise to some of these mythical beasts. Beautiful watercolor type sketches accompany each entry. Those that mention real world animals have pictures of those as well.

I read this book with my cubs, and we all enjoyed the delightful drawings. Most of these beasties were from Greco-Roman myth, which I did find frustrating. That seems to be the go-to and catch-all when it comes to mythology, and there's just so much more! We loved the more unusual, less common creatures mentioned, such as chupacabra, ahuizotl, and catoblepas. More from North America would have been nice, like the Piasa, uktena, Amarok, or even the more whimsical critters like the jackalope or cactus cat. Even still, it was greatly enjoyed by all, and prompted interest in new areas of myth, legend, and real animals like titanoba, and hybrid creatures that can be found today, such as ligers. In the older cubs, it led to discussions of attempts to recreate lost creatures, like attempts to bring back aurochs, and the tantalising possibility of bringing back mammoth, and other Ice Age fauna.

Perfect for the mythology lovers in your life!

***Many thanks to Netgalley and Quarto Publishing for providing an egalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. ( )
