Baby Bestiary Handbook Vol 1

Andreas Walters has put together a fantastic book that is part monster manual, part field guide, part ecology book and a huge part art book.

The book is a densely packed 81 full-color pages. Easily one of the best-looking books to be nominated for an ENnie. Each monster description comes with details on what the young of each monster is called (a baby Hippocampus is known as a "fry" for example), how hard it is to train the young and other vital facts such as danger and intelligence levels.

The book would make for a great coffee table book really and I hope there is a nice leatherbound option in the future collecting both volumes. Of course, the obvious choice here is the older gamer that has kids that LOVE monster books. I have forgotten how many times I have had to go on rescue missions to my kids rooms to find my D&D books. I still have a Pathfinder book that I can't account for in fact! For younger kids a "baby monster" game, ala Pokemon, gotta catch them all, would be fantastic. Since there is little to no "crunch" in this book it is compatible with a wide variety of games. Play your favorite game, use this book as your guide and go monster hunting with your kids.

In any case, this is a really fun book and I am really looking forward to Volume 2.

I think this isa great little book for exploring ideas around beast master type characters. My daughter loved it as well and anything that gets the young'uns interested in gaming cannot be a bad thing!

A very awesome tool for any DM. Especially great for really getting the kids involved in rpg's. My son, who is 7 loves this book and we are using it to help his Ranger beast master to find that perfect companion. The illustrations are top notch, the writing is well done, and the binder and paper quality are better rugged and thick. A must have for any DM's library or for anyone in general. Purchase it and you will not be sorry.

This is a fantastic book. It has about the right level of discourse to flesh out the young lives of our favorite OSR critters and creatures, from the whimsical perspective of one seeking to raise and train them. I'm using this to get my daughter interested in fantasy roleplaying, one beast at a time, before bed. The artist makes interesting choices, imbuing modern and fantasy features into the humans who interact with the baby beasts.
