* Reviews *Series Review: Graphic Mythical CreaturesEach book includes a two-page introduction to the creature to root its appearance in history and mythology, as well as a graphic-novel-style story about it and a page about related stories from other countries or mythological traditions. the books as a whole include a wide range of stories, from Greek myth to Russian fairy tales to medieval legends, so readers will get a feel for the wide range of the myths, something readers of individual titles only might miss. The stories are action packed and character driven, matched with artwork reminiscent of superhero comics. Characters, rather than creatures, are the prime focus of the stories in most cases, in terms of plot and imagery. Readers should be engaged by this treatment.School Library Journal
