Poet and author Juan Nicolás Padrón (b. Cuba 1950) creates a book on mythical creatures he dedicated to "those who are convinced of the existence of these creatures" and for "those who doubt their existence" masterly illustrated by artist Romo (b. Chile 1968). The alliance between them has resulted in the novel description and drawing of 30 legendary animals present since ancient times in literature and art: the Kraken (Norway), the Unicorn (Ancient Greece), the Bahamut (Medieval Italy), the Dragon (China), the Squonk (USA), the Catoblepas (Egypt), Mermaids (Ancient Greece), the Feathered Serpent (Mexico) and many others
