The Drac: French Tales Of Dragons And Demons by Felice Holman and Nanine Valen, illustrated by Stephen Walker, is a collection of five tales adapted from French legends including "The Invisible Demon," "The Carpenter's Crop," "The Terror of Nerluc," "The Lady of the Moor," and "The Flying Serpent."

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.
