Sketcher, adventurer, disguiser, and sneaker Ollister B. Pembrick roamed all of Skree with a sketchbook and pen, searching behind every tree stump and under every stone, in every river and on every hill, to discover and document the endless living wonders of the Maker's world. He risked life and limb--quite literally--to compile sketches and details of the creatures of Skree, usually from the cover of a hollow log, a hedge, or a pile of leaves.
Refer to this carefully documented Creaturepedia before traversing through the Stony Mountains or harvesting fartichokes within a fortnight after a sandstorm. The drawings and field notes about squeeblins, toothy cows, oiples, and more will surely save any explorer's life and will definitely keep them--and their appendages--from being gobbled. Tread carefully, young adventurer. The creatures within are not to be trifled with.
Pembrick's Creaturepedia is a great collection of over fifty various creatures. They are listed in alphabetical order. Each one lists the name, classification, weakness, taste, and demeanor. There is a creative and detailed sketch for every one of the creatures. I thought this was a fun and entertaining book to read. At the end, it includes pages for Field Notes, that readers can use for their own creature findings.
I am giving Pembrick's Creaturepedia a very well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend it for young readers who are between the ages of seven and thirteen and enjoy reading about monsters, fantasy and magical creatures. I thought it was great and plan on getting my son a hard copy as a gift for Christmas.
I received a digital copy of Pembrick's Creaturepedia from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
