The little details and the scrapbook-like assemblage of this introductory field guide is both intimate and charming.
- Nicely, even elaborately detailed, with elegant but lucid prose and text.
- Includes various samples of actual artifacts, as gathered on location.
- Speaks with authority, yet welcomes and encourages the novice.
- Beautifully illustrated.
- Reasonably priced.
- A little large for field use. A smaller companion field guide is needed.
- Will not resist moisture (dew or dragon breath) or tolerate high humidity (fog or dank caves) well. A laminated field guide is needed.
- Does not appear to be, nor claims to be flame retardant. A flame retardant field guide is needed.
- A little sketchy on the nutritional needs of dragon hatchlings. Amplified nutritional information would be welcomed.
The pictures do no do the cover and the final pages justice whatsoever. The cover has three green stones, obviously fake stones, that are embedded within the cover, and the dragon design is foil embossed. The dragon head on the very last page has a giant eye in which you can see your reflection, which is also quite interesting, though it did startle me the first time I saw it since I wasn't expecting. My mom thought it was awesome, though!
All-in-all, this book is perfect for kids and adults alike who enjoy the majesty and mystery of dragons from around the world and who would have fun translating things from all around the book from dragon into English.
I certainly hope to read and explore all the other books soon!
I got it for my daughter who is 6 and she is a HUGE HUGE dragon enthusiast she truly believes the are real. So I though me being a dragon lover myself I would see what all the fuss was about the ratings were high on it so I said "why not".
All I can say when we go this book in the mail is that I was speech less! It was far more gorgeous a d detailed than the pictures or advertising shows. My daughter had been asking me for days when will I get my dragon book? When? When?
So finally I got to show it to her when it got here and she was so happy. So I purchased another book in the series called Monsterology and when that one arrived it was every bit just as gorgeous as this book. So I am going to slowly buying the whole Ology collection because my whole family is crazy about anything mythical or amazing even thing that normal folks consider not real, well we usually think that there is some truth to them and maybe someday science will discover some of these creatures. Who knows, my belief is that anything is possible because we live on an amazing planet with so many things to discover that we don't even know halfof what all is out there.
So keep up the great inspirational books we love them and kids love them. Real or not I just love reading your books and I'm 29 so that says something my hubby is 42 and he is in love with these books.
*It is fiction, of course. Had me convinced otherwise in elementary school, though.

Took a chance buying 'non new' but this seller lived up to their promise of a clean and barely used book. All the tabs and letters were unopened and the cover was undamaged.I would recommend this book to anyone who needs a little light hearted magic and mystery!
