We’ve been having a lot of fun with Myth Match (Laurence King, RRP £14.99) in recent weeks. As you know, the BG kids are fans of all things magical, including creatures. This book offers the opportunity to learn about mythical creatures from all around the globe, from the more well-known unicorn, griffin and dragon, to Norse wolf Fenrir, via Persian peacock/dog/lion mash-up, the Simurgh. All exquisitely illustrated by Good Wives and Warriors (aka Becky Bolton and Louise Chappell). But the really fun part of this book is creating your own fantastic beasts – a phoeken, with the head of a kraken and body of a phoenix, or a wolpenneko, with a head of a cat and winged body of a squirrel. There are 1000 creations, so one to keep the children busy for a while!
