For centuries man has told fabulous stories of mythical creatures. Grandfathers told grandchildren tales of giants and witches, and sailors brought home stories of mermaids and sea monsters.
In this book, you will meet six creatures from myth and legend: a dragon that terrorises the people of an underground city; a mermaid that tempts two stranded sailors with her beauty and song; a fairy that befriends a young girl in a park that is destined to be destroyed; the tengu, a horrifying and ugly creature from Japan; a giant and his much smaller brother as they go on an adventure in the fabled city of Albadan; and a golden phoenix that guards an ancient temple and protects a young girl from harm.
