Monsters have cast their spell over humanity since the dawn of story. Creeping, swooping, stomping, flying, screeching and munching their way from the voices of our ancestors, they’ve evolved into creatures of fantasy and urban legend.

Do you have a favourite?
I’m drawn to the shapeshifting Belgian Kludde. Who doesn’t love and fear a shapeshifter? But, if I had to choose one as my own, I’d want Sleipnir, Odin’s eight-legged horse who can travel through all elements at break-neck speed.
