Children who love animals, especially fantastical ones, will enjoy learning these "group" names (and might just be inspired them to learn group names of non-fantastical animals, as well).
I really appreciate what Ogburn did here, and I love some of the names she created. That said, I was rather disappointed to learn that Ogburn had made up the group names. Of course this isn't her "fault" by any means! And someone has to do it. But I guess I just wanted this to be clearer from the start or something. However, I *love* the variety and scope of the creatures she includes, from the very familiar to the much less so.
I could never really decide if I liked the illustrations or thought they were a little odd. Some are quite pretty and mystical, but they don't always strike me as something that would appeal to children (but, since I have no children to test this on, that's just me guessing). Typically each page contains about three-to-four creatures that are similar, and sometimes it's a little hard to figure out which creature is which (i.e. which illustration is the Phoenix and which is the fire bird).
What raised the star rating for me was the fantastic listing of creatures in the back-matter. Ogburn does give us the background and brief information about each of the creatures and I was thrilled at her concise and informative descriptions (including the creatures "country of origin"). Part of me wants to own this book just for reference. And definitely the book is worth looking at if only just for this!
