I’m going to admit something here, because it’s a safe space…
I am addicted to bestiaries.
OK, not really addicted, per se.
BUT, I have loved them since I was very little. Few things did more to pique my interest in the fantastic than page after page of bizarre, terrifying, fascinating creatures. I’d like to share a few of them with you, specifically the ones that I am enjoying with my daughters, along with a few that I either do not own, or would like to read.
(As a side note, I will be avoiding D&D Monster Manual-style books. Not because they aren’t interesting (they are), but because they are largely out of my realm of expertise. And if you are even remotely interested in reading a D&D Monster Manual, this list probably isn’t for you. You’re doing fine on your own.)
