"A little myth lover will, well, flip over this book/game hybrid that lets them read all about mythical beasts from all over the world, then combine elements of pages to create new ones."-The New York Times
"Myth Match is the sort of book you can lose hours in. Read Myth Match if you're interested in monsters, mythology, or artwork. Read it if you have a sense of wonder. Read it if you love riotous imaginative pictures. Don't read it if you only have 5 minutes to spare!-GeekDad
