Can you tell the difference between a pwca and a bwca, a bwbach and a bwci bo? No? Help is at hand.

Merlin's Magical Creatures started life when its author and illustrator, Graham Howells, discovered a set of manuscripts in a cave in the remote Carmarthenshire hills. He was stunned when he realised that he might actually have found the writings of the great magician Merlin himself.
Since his miraculous discovery, Graham has expended much effort - and midnight oil - in adapting Merlin's text to the needs of the modern reader, adding his own distinctive illustrations to give crispness and clarity to an ancient and mysterious body of knowledge.
