A noteworthy review of Legendary Creatures from School Library Journal on April 1, 2022

This series hooks readers from page one with descriptive storytelling. The scene is set—a crumbling cemetery, a trail deep in the woods—and children are taken on a journey to learn all about dragons, vampires, fairies, and other fantastical creatures. The books discuss the history and possible origins of the creatures and how these beliefs have shown up in modern society. Striking images and helpful diagrams compare and contrast the creatures’ features in different world cultures. A phonetic glossary, index, further reading, and suggested websites are included. VERDICT Give this series to readers who are looking for narrative nonfiction.
