This collection includes a preface, an illustrated map showing the locations and drawings of each creature, information about each creature, and a bibliography for each tale. Walker draws one illustration for each tale. The creatures of the tales include the Drac, an invisble dragon; a very tall gentleman who is the devil; the Tarasque, a enormous dragon with terrible claws, armor, and burning dung; a ghostly lady who is also a weed who lures men into the wilderness; and the Vouivre, a winged serpent of fire with a magical eye.
These tales were all new to me. The first three were my favorites, but all were interesting. I appreciated the explanation after each story and the bibliographies. They could be useful for storytelling or as read alouds. I give this a four for providing folktales that are new to me.
For ages 9 to 12, myth, folktale, legends, France, and fans of Felice Holman and Stephen Walker.
