"My first thought upon seeing Welsh Monsters & Mythical Beasts was Goodness, what a useful book!' A must-have guide to those creatures you hope never to encounter except in story and imagination." - John Howe Upon the dramatic landscape of the Isle of Wales there have been born many creatures and beings of legend. This lushly illustrated guide delves into the dragons, beasts, fair folk, and spirits of Wales. Tales become blended and one with history, and this history meets illustration with C.C.J. Ellis' rich renderings of these creatures. Detail and colour lift these beings off the page and bring this compendium to life. Now available worldwide, this new edition includes a Welsh language guide so that each of the creatures might be known by their original Welsh names. You may have heard of the Red Dragon (Ddraig Goch) featured on the national flag of Wales, but have you heard of the Water Leaper (Llamhigyn Y Dwr) or of the Mary White (Mari Lwyd)? C.C.J. aims to re-introduce the beasts of Welsh myth and legend to the world and bring a touch of Wales to your shelves.
