When I realized that this is supposed to be non-fiction, I was all: oh this going to be a feast.Sure, nice try by the authors at the start. But if the fabricated egyptian papyrus, the letter to the American president or the mentioning of giants wasn't enough, they used the drawing of a white horse with a horn as a unicorn. And the problem is that middle ages unicorns were depicted with cloven hoves.Actually, sometimes the book seems to be trying to look authentic with its papers and pictures but [...]

Did they agree to that?
4* Nice book, not only for children, lot of creatures and interesting information. For everybody who like to dream about fantasy animals.
