So I'm looking searching the internet right now for a book listing and thoroughly explaining any mythical creature you can think of and then some. My girlfriend likes to write in her spare time and it's usually fantasy and sci-fi. I want to get her something for christmas to help her get ideas for different characters. She is never satisfied with her characters because she feels they are not unique. I remember this book from when I was younger that had what I'm looking for and it was worth a pretty penny. Now I'm having trouble finding such a book. Every one I'm seeing doesn't seem like it would have something to offer she didn't know about already. Anyway, if you know of a book like the one I'm searching for, please let me know. I would greatly appreciate it.
