People have always believed in mythical creatures and beings, even if they haven’t been able to prove that they exist, and there are plenty of tales about elemental beings and scary beasts. If you’re not easily scared, you’ll enjoy the book’s easy to read facts that take you into an exciting
and unfamiliar world.
Picture Nuppeppon, a smelly, one-metre-tall blobb of fatty flesh that the
Japanese believe will give you eternal life - if you eat it. Or a creature that could eat you, like the Russian supernatural being Baba Jaga, who lives in the borderland between the living and the dead. She is very wise and has clever answers to all your questions - if you dare to ask them!
