Publisher Comments:

This indispensable workbook teaches everything you need to know to become an esteemed dragonologist.

Attention, devoted dragonology students! How many classic riddles do you know that could help you survive a dragon encounter? What dragon species attacks its victims with a "frosty blast" instead of a jet of flame? Which historical questions should you ask a dragon in order to estimate its age? Can you write your name using only dragon runes? Contained in this beautifully designed, comprehensive course book are invisibility spells to memorize, charts to complete, maps to shade in, matching exercises to do, journal entries to write, experiments to conduct, even instructions for making a dragon attractor. Among the volume's charming novelty elements are:

—Dr. Drake's own school report card

— A pullout official ID card from the Secret & Ancient Society of

Dragonologists

—Four sheets of stickers featuring dragons, gems, vintage ads and posters — and more!

About the Author

Dr. Ernest Drake is the author of the rediscovered DRAGONOLOGY: THE COMPLETE BOOK OF DRAGONS, first published in a very limited run in 1895. Said to be a noted dragonologist and founder of the Secret & Ancient Society of Dragonologists in London, Dr. Ernest Drake was determined to bring the subject of dragons under the burgeoning umbrella of the nineteenth-century natural sciences. The spectacular popularity of his book DRAGONOLOGY has sparked a great deal of interest in the study of dragons and spurred much rummaging in antiquarian bookshops and attics in search of new Drake material. Happily, this earlier volume created for students, THE DRAGONOLOGY HANDBOOK: A PRACTICAL COURSE IN DRAGONS, turned up recently in an old public house called the Canny Lad in Edinburgh.

Has very good pictures of dragons. Lots of information except for on 2 of the dragons. Has fun fill-in parts that makes you feel like you are doing the class in Dragonology. Has a certificate in the back to hang on your wall when you have finished it. Has one of the authors report cards from when he was in school and has a 5-page long story and a 2nd look at the European dragon and adds newly found dragons. I love this dragon book! It is on the book shelf next to my other Dragonology book.
