Dragonology: Tracking and Taming Dragons A Deluxe Book and Model Set Volume 1 European Edition

Written by: Ernest Drake

First line: "Where can I find dragons?" is such a common refrain these days that it seems to crop up almost every time our favourite flying beasts are mentioned.

Why you should read this book: In truth, I purchased it in careless error, thinking I was buying a souped-up edition of the original Dragonology book, but alas, this "Tracking and Taming" "Guide for Beginnings" is a sort of small and silly pamphlet with brief overviews of the fictional world of Dragonology, along with some very basic notes about tracking and training animals, which might be applied to a dragon if one were to be found. The illustrations are amusing but, for the most part, not particularly clever or interesting. The book itself is basically a companion for the actual meat of this product, which is a really lovely dragon model, comprised of twelve pieces that can be easily assembled by the youngest model makers and hung from the ceiling; purchase it if you or your child want to assemble a beautiful but very simple three-dimensional dragon, not if you want to read an engaging book (and not if you're into really complex models, which this is not).

Why you shouldn't read this book: You want to read the original Dragonology book.
