“The more I perused this charmingly-illustrated guide to the creatures of Janina’s restless imagination, the more I begin to realise how real and familiar they truly are. You will find them, quirky, helpful, devious and mischievous, in and around every household; certainly, I recognise them all. Janina does these creatures the honour of naming and categorising them, in fine taxonomic style, just as she does us the favour of at last bringing them to light. This is a book that begs to be kept at the bedside, not just for entertainment but for reference. Because these lesser-known spooks and beings, once you have made their splendid acquaintance, will not remain lesser-known for long.”
