Meet the world's most unusual monsters in this darkly funny collection of creatures and cryptids from folkloric history.

Packaged in a textured three-piece case and illustrated in lush watercolor, Monsters You Should Knowis a perfect primer for the many strange, frightening, and compelling things that go bump in the night.
