Praise

Standout scenes include a Chinese dragon with an unfolding crepe paper body and a vampire whose coffin lid lifts as he awakens. Once again, Reinhart and Sabuda have created an offering distinguished by clever details, superb execution, and a sense of wonder.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

There’s Medusa in all her reptilian glory and hypnotic eyes representing Monsters of Antiquity; a ferocious green dragon symbolizing Terrible Serpents of the West; and a show-stopping red dragon snaking its circuitous body, partially composed of tissue paper disks, across the page embodying the Majesty of Eastern Dragons.� Marvels of paper engineering.
—The Horn Book (starred review)

A spectacular climax to the authors' Encyclopedia Mythologica, offering a world-spanning gallery of ancient and modern monsters portrayed in thrilling 3-D…another tour de force of paper engineering.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

In addition to showing readers that fear-invokers are as old as civilization itself, the well-written text makes interesting connections between monsters and aspects of modern-day life and culture� Another winner in a delightful series that combines solid content, handsome artwork, and a wow-inspiring presentation.
—School Library Journal (starred review)
