Everybody's heard of a centaur, but not everyone has seen a blue centaur dressed to head out to a disco! He's one of the updated mythological creatures who populate Greece! Rome! Monsters!. This book presents twenty creepy creatures--from harpies to Medusa herself to the fire-breathing Chimera--in jazzy retellings by John Harris, with eye-popping illustrations by Southern California illustrator Calef Brown. Together, the words and pictures provide children (and grownups!) with close encounters of the mythological kind. Includes a bonus pronunciation guide and a pop quiz that will test to see if young readers have really been paying attention.
