Leviathan, that crooked serpent … the dragon that is in the Sea. This quote is from the Bible. If there were never any Dragons, why did all sorts of nations tell stories about them? asks Andrew Lang in this classic and colorful Red Book of AnimalMoreLeviathan, that crooked serpent … the dragon that is in the Sea. This quote is from the Bible. If there were never any Dragons, why did all sorts of nations tell stories about them?

asks Andrew Lang in this classic and colorful Red Book of Animal Stories. Not only do we find fiery dragons here, but dangerous dogs and demons- bears, bats, boars, and baboons- greyhounds and griffins- cows and crocodiles- hyenas and hippopotamuses- snakes, saints, and sheep- monkeys, mermaids, and mammoths- lions and llamas- and dozens of others from the wide and wonderful animal world.

What a menagerie to excite the senses and lure the adventurous!Lang, a noted historian, was also an incurable romantic—hence his great success in writing childrens books. These stories, first published in 1899, were selected and edited by Lang. The ones about Tom the Bear are from the French work on natural history by Alexander Dumas.

Most of the tales in the chapter Thieving Dogs and Horses were published by Sir Walter Scott. Sixty-eight excellent and evocative illustrations enhance the stories and the readers enjoyment of them.
