Forthcoming book (U.S.): Monsterology: The Complete Book of Monstrous Creatures (Ologies)

Monsterology: The Complete Book of Monstrous Creatures (Ologies) by Ernest Drake will be released on August 12, 2008 in the U.S.

Description: Do Krakens still lurk below the ocean waves? Do Griffins command the air above? In a fascinating new discovery sure to rival the groundbreaking Dragonology, the intrepid Dr. Ernest Drake turns his inquisitive gaze from dragons to other so-called mythical creatures. The gorgeous volume's many special features include:
  • a removable letter from Dr. Drake
  • multiple foldouts, flaps, and pull-outs
  • textured "samples" including sea-serpent skin and a feather from a winged horse
  • booklets of useful information—such as essential riddles to tell a sphynx
  • a six-page booklet for young explorers to fill in themselves.
For anyone who has ever wondered whether legendary beasts still wander among us, this lush look at an astounding array of creatures offers everything a true believer would want to know.
