Readers beware: dangerous creatures are found in the pages of Lucy Cousins' collection of folk and fairy tales. The images might be big and colourful, but all the better to show off things like gleaming teeth and sharp claws. The text is simple, which lets the pictures take centre stage. Definitely worth taking a closer look at.
