Fantasy Takes Flight with the 10th Anniversary Edition of Dragonology-Giveaway

If you have someone on your Christmas list with a love of all things fantastic and mythical, the best-selling Ology books from Candlewick Press are probably already on a wish list. And this holiday season, the first book in the series, Dragonology, is being released in a very special 10-year anniversary edition. Here’s a synopsis of this hugely popular book:

dragonology 10th anniversary cover

Do you believe in dragons? Now, for the first time, the long-lost research of renowned nineteenth century dragonologist Dr. Ernest Drake is presented in all its eccentric glory, happily bridging the gap between dragon legend and fact. The meticulous Dr. Drake assigns Latin names to various dragon species, ruminates on why dragons are able to speak, speculates on how they could fly, and explains the true purpose of their notorious hoarding habits.

In his afterword, Dr. Drake reveals that one of the crucial goals of dragonologists is to preserve the magnificent creatures of their study wherever possible – a goal this tongue-in-cheek volume most affectionately achieves. An incomparable gift for secret dragonologists everywhere!
