Synopsis

Our ancestors believed in mermaids, unicorns, and cyclopes, not because they were mad, but because they didn't know any better. And so what if the terrible kraken, so feared by sailors, was none other than a giant squid? "Monsters and Legends" is a delightful journey into the fearsome, unknown worlds of dragons, vampires, yetis, and gremlins, magnificently illustrated by Gabriella Giandelli.Davide Cali's book "Piano Piano" received a 2006 Bologna Ragazzi Special Award and the Swiss Enfantaisies Prize for Children's Literature. He is also the co-author of "I Can't Wait," winner of the 2005 Baobob Prize. Cali has received the Belgian Libbylit Award and France's SNCF Award.
