Not only is this book entertaining in story but you get to learn about the mythology of different beasts. Chock-ful of pictures lists and mystical mysteries after your finished you are eagerly awaiting for the next book.
I especially enjoyed learning about beasts that I had never heard of before such as the Barometz. It is a plant with the head and ears of new born lamb. Of course this plant has another name that is better known. If you are curious then pick up this journal of Abigail Thaddeus but be for-warned for the adventure you will take will leave you asking more questions then there are answers.
Of course I am doubly excited for the next book which hints that it has to do with fairies. So you know I will be picking it up.
