This sumptuous folio takes Carlton's publishing on magical and mythical creatures to an even higher level. An engaging visual feast, it transports readers to the very heart of a world where dragon fire lights up the skies. With painstaking devotion to detail, it encourages children to explore every corner of the page. The large classic format allows the pictures - including scenic artworks, anatomical drawings and museum artefacts - to tell their own stories without the need for too much text. You can discover the treasure hoard of the dragon, uncover the secrets of dragon wisdom and hear the tales of the greatest dragon slayers.
S. A. Caldwell is a lifelong chronicler of dragonkind and an esteemed fellow of the Ancient Guild of Dragon Research. One of very few humans to earn the scraps of a dragon's trust, she is uniquely qualified to pass on what little can be known of the creature's ways and wisdom. She lives in Oxford.
