THIS IS HANDS DOWN MY FAVORITE BOOK OF THE HOLIDAY SEASON! Yokai Museum is an inspiring and delightful visual history of Japanese Folk Monsters, and I can't sing its praises loud enough. Taking forms varied from spirited household objects to amorphous furry blobs, giant cats to ghoulish mutants, the astoundingand brash variety of the yokai pantheon and the innate ferocious humor that goes into portraying them keeps me coming back and finding new surprises.
