KIRKUS REVIEW

Companion volume to The First Book of Mythical Beasts -- illustrated in 2 colors by Lewis Zacks, this brings together further legends from mythology. Here we find retold the story of the Minotnur, of the Cyclops, of the Nls (from Scandinavian folk tales), the Tongu (from Japan), the Syphyax (from Egypt), giants and fairies and humanized animals -- and from our own national , the tale of Paul Bunyan. While the size of the book precludes the full treatment, this provides a good introduction.
