The publisher informs us, via subtle hinting, who is or isn't real through publisher's notes - in various guises - at the beginning of each book.Overall, Monsterology is fantastic and a must have for someone fascinated by mythology, monsters, and fantasy.

The cover may have some limited signs of wear but the pages are clean, intact and the spine remains undamaged. This book is not to be and should not be mixed up with the actual monster book from Harry Potter, that may eat little fingers; this book can answer, do monstrous krakens really lurk below the deep ocean waves? A fabulous tome for those who love legendary beasts that still wander among us, this lush and luxurious look at an astounding array of creatures offers everything a true believer would want to know. The conceit of the book is that it's a facsimile of one published in 1904 but - to my untrained eye at least - the illustrations of the fantastical beasts themselves do nothing to evoke the period.Monsterology The Complete Book of Monstrous Beasts" by Ernest Drake is, a fictional children's book about about fictional monsters including unicorns, griffins, the kraken, etc. In a case such as Mythology, the book is based around the published and private papers of a fictional lady traveller with notes from an equally fictitious man, but the book is a beautiful - one might even say visually stunning - introduction to the deities and myths of ancient Greece. The full-page pictures show with panache the attraction of a Medusa, Dracula, or Loki, while the more repulsive monsters are depicted humorously rather than frighteningly. If I have communicated anything in this book, I hope above all that it has been something of wonder not only of these fabulous beasts but of all the beasts, birds, and fishes that inhabit the Earth.

A companion to DRAGONOLOGY, MONSTEROLOGY is a study of the many supposedly mythical beasts that inhabit our world. He had absolutely no doubt that dragons exist, and his notes suggest that he had no little experience of them. Dugald Steer was born in 1965 and grew up in Surrey, where his love of books and reading led him to study English Literature and Philosophy at Bristol.

The fictitious "Dr Ernest Drake" is back from Dragonology to guide us through this extraordinary world. Medusa’s perpetual bad hair days, not to mention the hairiness of the Sasquatch and the female werewolf, are exploited with glee, and a recurring editorial comment is “Gross! There is a lot of "samples" from the creatures that the author finds especially in the back, there is a section dedicated to the samples found.
