A second major volume by the esteemed Dr. Drake — a lavish exploration of fantastical beasts, from yetis to unicorns
Do krakens really lurk below the ocean waves? Do griffins command the air above? In a fascinating new discovery sure to rival the ground-breaking DRAGONOLOGY, the intrepid Dr. Ernest Drake turns his inquisitive gaze from dragons to other so-called mythical creatures. Included are:
* 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 * sundry booklets — including riddles to tell a sphinx * a cabinet of curiosities containing yeti fur, a hippogriff feather, and more
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.
