Synopsis : Dragonologists, look no further! Here, in a single handsome, indispensable volume, is gathered a lifetime’s worth of knowledge about these magnificent creatures.
Call it an encyclopedia of dragonology — an authorized resource so definitive that dragon lovers everywhere are fired up with excitement. From the esteemed Dr. Drake comes a beautifully illustrated, lovingly assembled tribute to all things dragonological, featuring:
— A guide to dragon species, with entries on everything from the well-known European dragon to the lesser-known hydra — as well as pseudo-species such as the phoenix and the incognito
— Insight into dragon biology, from flight to reproduction (with tips on how to tell the males from the females)
— An in-depth look at dragons’ habits, including migration, communication, camouflage, and notorious hoarding practices
— A section on humans and dragons, offering secrets of tracking and taming, deciphering riddles, and becoming a dragon master
— Practical essentials such as how to keep records, use spells, keep specimens, and care for sick dragons
— A comprehensive glossary, index, and much more!
From School Library Journal:
Grade 4 Up—"Written" by the fictional late-19th-century dragonologist Ernest Drake, this book offers everything kids might want to know about dragons. It's disguised as nonfiction and bound in an elaborate turn-of-the-20th-century cover with detailed illustrations on every page. Topics include a dragon's scales; how to distinguish males from females (females are tidier); the various species, including the difference between a basilisk and a wyvern; and how fire-breathing actually works (some dragons possess a "spark pouch" that ignites their venom, allowing them to shoot flames 100 yards). The volume will draw young readers with an interest in dragons, and will be an appealing browsing item for fantasy fans.—Walter Minkel, Austin Public Library, TX
