Many humans have heard of mythical creatures like dragons, unicorns and phoenixes, but far less well-known is the mysterious world of mythical hybrids. From the drameleon and the chorgon to the pacorn and the cerberig, there is a multitude of hybrids that are combinations of mythical creatures and more common animals like pigs, chickens, parrots and chameleons. Learn all about each of these unique creatures in this beginner’s guide for humans — their habitats, diets, life cycles and more. And if you are lucky enough to encounter a hydroose with nine heads or any of these other fantastic creatures, make sure to read the tips, advice and warnings. After all, you’ll want to remember that the troraffe doesn’t like apples and what could happen if you whistle to a cyclog. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
*Includes a colour set of collectible cards at the back of the book!

About Our Authors
Young people often struggle to be heard, but Elephant Community Press offers opportunities for students to share their ideas with friends, family and the community at large. By publishing the work of young authors, ECP aims to demonstrate that there is an audience for well-crafted and thoughtful writing, no matter how old the writers are.
Our young authors range in age from 6 to 17 and attend both local and international schools in Hong Kong. They herald from diverse backgrounds, but share with us a passion for storytelling and the belief that everyone has something worthwhile to say.
ECP has worked with students from a wide variety of schools including Canadian International, German Swiss, Kennedy, Diocesan Girls’ Junior School, St. Paul’s Co-Ed, West Island, Braemar Hill, Diocesan Boys’ School, Singapore International, French International, HKIS, Glenealy and Renaissance College.
