In 2005, the Getty published Greece! Rome! Monsters! , a handy guide to the best-known monsters from Greek and Roman mythology. Now comes My Monster Notebook , which presents yet more of these creepy creatures and characters from ancient times. Purporting to be a school notebook found on the sidewalk, the pages reveal the stories of such thrilling and little-known creatures as the huge Teumessian Fox (who was turned to stone by Zeus), Echidna (mother of many, many monsters), hundred-headed Briaereus (who was also a handful), and Typhon (who threw mountains around as if they were beanbags).

My Monster Notebook offers a peek at a bunch of creatures you definitely would not want to run into, brought to vivid life by someone who accidentally dropped his (or her) lovingly put together notebook. Fortunately, we found it! It includes a pronunciation guide. How do you say "Nereid"? Ages eight and up.

Brought this book to school for some of my less-than-motivated 3rd grade students working with reading challenges. THEY LOVED IT. As many of their classmates were reading Percy Jackson, this book delivered analogous content to what their peers were reading, but broke it down into an accessible format. One of my students wanted to reread it so much, I bought him his own copy!
