    The entries are all over the place mythological and folkloric figures like the Black Dog and Bloody Bones fairy tale denizens like the Billy Goats Gruff and the Tooth Fairy characters from Shakespeare notions such as the Imp of the Perverse stuff that as far as I know Baskin just made up like the Demon of EnergyThe Demon of Energy picks on fat people apparently A few ideas that didn't get full pages are crammed in at the endThe layout is uniue with different sizes and shapes of image and the text also different sizes and placed at varying angles

    After enjoying Leonard Baskin's wonderful A Book of Dragons written with his young son Hosie I immediately began looking around for other children's books he had worked on coming up with this fabulous catalogue of unusual creatures Taken from traditional folklore works of original fantasy and the author's own imagination the twenty one beings profiled here from The Imp of the Perverse to the Jack o Lantern are all a little creepyHere the reader will encounter The Wicked Witch of the West from L Frank Baum's classic children's novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz ; Ariel and Caliban from Shakespeare's The Tempest ; and Oberon and Titania from his A Midsummer Night's Dream Here too is the bridge troll from the Norwegian folktale The Three Billy Goats Gruff ; the elves from the Grimms' The Elves and the Shoemaker ; and the diminutive villain of Rumpelstiltskin The other creatures include Jack Frost the bogeyman Bloody Bones the Tooth Fairy a gremlin the Black Dog the Little Gnome the Witch of Dark Adventures the Demon of Energy Tinkerbell the Sly Devil the Witch of Secret Good Deeds and the Guardian Angel Finally the giants that Jack killed Cormoran Blunderbore Thunderbell and Gargantua also make an appearanceEach creature profiled in Imps Demons Hobgoblins Witches Fairies Elves is given a two page spread with text ranging from simple sentence to complete fairy tale on one page and painting on the other Baskin's images are compelling giving even those creatures commonly held to be cute a sinister appearance The palette is very dark here and some of the illustrations disturbing so I would say that this is one for those with a taste for the darker side of the supernatural Leonard Baskin fans naturally will be delighted

    Not as grand or focused as “Dragons” the prose is a bit underbaked but still the illustrations are the star of the show and they are beautiful and grotesue in eual measure
