(back cover)

Have you ever dreamed of raising your very own

dragon? Now you can.

Within the past few decades, dragon-breeders have sprung up worldwide. And here is the very first guidebook devoted to raising and keeping the unique creatures they supply.

The author of this essential manual is none other than the world-renowned dragon scholar, John Topsell. A distant relative of the famous naturalist, Edward Topsell, John has spent much of his life raising dragons.

Learn all you need to know about the raising process: selecting and acquiring an available breed; building the perfect enclosure; hatching a dragon egg; feeding and grooming; training and riding; showing your dragon in competition; and much, much more. Hundreds of stunning illustrations complement the text.

With this extraordinary book always in hand, you'll enjoy many happy years with the world's most mysterious and satisfying animal companion.

The "Editor"

Award-winning author Joseph Nigg has researched and written about fantastic animals for more than twenty years, his previous books including The Book of Gryphons, The book of Fabulous Beasts, and The Book of Dragons and Other Mythical Beasts. He has taught at several colleges and universities and lives in Denver, Colorado.

Synopsis:

Kids who enjoy whimsy will be delighted by this beautifully illustrated owner's manual for dragon fanciers. It tells about the wide range of different dragons available, the characteristics of each, and the equipment and supplies that every dragon owner should have on hand. 250+ full-color illustrations.

Synopsis:

Why keep a dragon? There are many reasons. What else can protect your treasure . . . impress your friends . . . make diamonds out of coal . . . work as a model for coats of arms . . . heat your home? Kids who enjoy whimsy will be delighted by this beautifully illustrated owner's manual for dragon fanciers. It tells about the wide range of different dragons available, the characteristics of each, and the equipment and supplies that every dragon owner should have on hand.
