This time we would like to present you our recent discovery – the “Atlas of Monsters and Ghosts” [“Atlante dei mostri e dei fantasmi più spaventosi”, first published in 2018], created by Italian author Federica Magrin, with illustrations prepared by Spanish illustrator – Laura Brenlla:
The author takes young readers on a world-wide tour, presenting them numerous magical and haunted places, where they can meet mysterious creatures and mythical monsters.
In the book we can find a special section devoted to Classical Mythology, where children can get to know some famous ancient characters, such as (inter alia): a Siren, Kirke, a Centaur and the Cyclops:
Federica Magrin & Laura Brenlla work often together, creating many interesting books for children, see for example “Discovering the Ancient Egyptians – Playing with History”:
Also in October 2019 their new book entitled “The Great Book of Mythology” will be published:
