I didn't expect this book to be as good as it is! Not only is it hardback, but the photo on Amazon doesn't do the quality or size of the book justice. You could argue this is a childrens book, but it will suit any age interested in dragons. Inside there are more facts about dragons than you can shake a stick at! Beautifuly designed and written, and with care and attention to the subject. I am extremely impressed with the amount of information and the hand drawn pictures are amazing. I'm working my way through the book now and thoroughly enjoying every page...every word!

I bought this book for my 10 year old neice and she absolutely loves it! If, like me, you grew up reading Brian Froud's faerie books, the Pan series of Gnomes and Giants, you'll love this too. It's not just for kids, the different kinds of dragons all have their history and countries of origin based in fact, the Tasmanian Dragons are excellent. I'll stop ranting, I'm just so pleased books like this are still made, beautifully bound, illustrated and written, total bargain and it's now my niece's official Favourite Book!

This is a video showing the new dragonology book in the wonderful Ology series. It's an encyclopedia of dragons, written by Victorian dragonologist Dr. Ernest Drake. I've tried to show how much is in the book by flicking through it's pages. Enjoy!

If you like old fashioned books on mythical creatures than this is the book for you! Fulled with dragon species, habitats, likes and dislikes this is practically a dragon encyclopedia. Dr. Drake describes each dragon so carefully, and shows how unique each dragon's personality is that it's quite unbelievable that there aren't any... Or are there? Not only will the writing stun you but the drawings too! They are outstandingly detailed and creative, shaded in so cautiously.
A book that I will definitely read over and over again, I must rate this book a FIVE STAR!
Enjoy reading!

I bought this for my 10 year old daughter. She just read it and read it. This is her review.

This book is a great follow up to Dragonology. I love the front cover and the pages have lovely illustrations. It tells you about all the types of dragon and 12 extinct dragons. It's a book that
you can read over and over again. I still haven't read the whole book. It's not a long book about 300 or more pages it's just I like to read bits over and over again. I really can't praise this
book enough. Even adults can enjoy this book.

I would really reccomend this book to anyone over nine. LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! BUY IT!

This is a very well put together book, with excellent illustrations and plenty of detail.
My daughter and I really enjoyed looking through it together.

The only complaint that my daughter had was that only one of the dragons could be viewed online, she would have liked to see more of them 'come to life'.

So if you have even a passing interest in dragons then this book could be of interest.

A beautiful book with lots of information for budding dragonologists. The drawings are amazing and can highly recommend it along with the others in the series!
