Encyclopedia Mythologica: Dragons & Monsters

Matthew Reinhart and Robert Sabuda. Candlewick, $29.99 (12p) ISBN 978-0-7636-3173-4
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.)
