Down through the ages, people have imagined that the world is filled with all sorts of ogres, giants, and monsters, partly as a way of explaining the unknown, partly as a way of accounting for such natural disasters as earthquakes, floods, and volcanoes, and partly to frighten children into behaving. In cultures all over the world parents and guardians frequently use the ideas of creatures like "the bogeyman" to make youngsters aware of the many dangers awaiting children who misbehave. This coloring book contains ready-to-color illustrations depicting 30 of these imaginary creatures from folktales around the world.
These devilishly delightful portraits of formidable creatures include such imaginary creatures as Blunderbore, the greedy giant in the age-old tale of Jack, the Giant-killer; Boo-bagger, an English ogre who likes to chase lost children; and Lino-zha, a three-headed, 60-foot-tall Chinese giant with eight arms.
