Overview
In a breathtaking grand finale, the world s mythical pop-up masters unleash monsters and dragons that have prowled countrysides and imaginations for centuries.
Lurking behind this intriguing cover, a Kraken grapples with a ship on the high seas; dragons from Eastern and Western traditions spring to life; and a Medusa, snake-hair twisting and hissing, turns the reader to stone. Deeper inside, an ancient, decrepit vampire rises from his coffin; a lycanthrope is caught in the light of the full moon and transforms; and Bigfoot hides behind a tree, ducking his human pursuer. Master paper engineers Matthew Reinhart and Robert Sabuda unfold the legends and lore of cultures around the world to reveal these stunning creatures and many more. Pop-up fans and fantasy lovers will be equally enthralled by the dynamic creatures depicted in this astonishing volume, the climax of the Encyclopedia Mythologica trilogy."

The pop-up book veterans continue to push the envelope in this addition to the Encyclopedia Mythologica series, with infamous figures like Medusa (who seems to roar as her serpentine locks unfurl) joining more general creatures such as dragons, sea monsters, and vampires. Minibooks and sidebars profile less recognizable monsters—the golem, sharklike "taniwha," and "wendigo," known to Algonquian tribes. 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. Ages 5–up. (Apr.)
