Unicorns

(3) 4-6 Behind the Legend series. Illustrated by Jomike Tejido. This fascinating series looks at the myths surrounding legendary creatures. Also explored are the factual or scientific bases that provide reasonable explanations for how these creatures may have entered into folklore. Each chapter is further divided into subsections and sidebars, which makes for easily digestible information. The cartoon-style illustrations tend toward dark and brooding and fit well with the subject matter. Reading list. Bib. Review covers these Behind the Legend titles: Unicorns, Werewolves, and Zombies.
