Monsters and Villains of the Movies and Literature
From King Kong to Lewis Carroll’s Jabberwocky, from Tolkien’s Shelob spider to zombies, t are some monsters that children and adults love to be scared by. Monsters of Movies and Literature collects 40 of these characters, both from classical literature, with figures such as snake-headed Medusa from Greek mythology and the Ziz bird from the Book of Psalms, to recent fantasy literature, such as John Wyndham’s triffids and H.G. Wells’ morlocks. Examples are also drawn from right across the globe, with contributions from Norse, Malaysian and Creole mythology. Illustrated throughout with outstanding new full-colour annotated artworks, easy-to-follow accounts of the characters’ stories and factfile boxes, this book will appeal to any child interested in tales, monsters and movies.
