The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is an absolutely brilliant follow-up to the hugely inspirational Dragonology. It’s a great way to learn more about the ways of dragons and test your skills as an amateur dragonologist. Much more than a book, it’s a total experience complete with a dragonologist’s certificate. Why not take a look at other dragonology titles such as Dragonology, Dragon's Eye, Tracking and Taming Dragons, and Field Guide To Dragons?


Working With Dragons by Dugald Steer

Learn more about the ways of dragons and test your skills as an amateur dragonologist with Dr Ernest Drake’s pocket guide to these popular mythical creatures. With a host activities to keep readers interested.
