Our mythological creatures website features creatures from the Fantastic Fabulous Creatures & Beasts series written by Author Melanie Dellas. Melanie takes “real” myths and tales from around the world, and writes them in a way that everyone can enjoy. We hope that children and “big children” remember that our world is still mystical, magical, and full of mythological creatures as long as our stories remain alive!
