Series: Ology
Celebrate 20 incredible years of Ology with this special edition of Dragonology - the journal of dragonologist Dr Ernest Drake.

Do you believe in dragons? Said to originate from the library of eminent Victorian dragonologist Ernest Drake, this book imparts to readers the secrets of the ancient science of dragonology, 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. It includes a host of novelties, such as old letters, magic dust and dragon scales.

In his afterword, Dr. Drake reveals that one of the crucial goals of dragonologists is to preserve and protect the magnificent creatures of their study wherever possible - a goal this lavishly illustrated volume most affectionately achieves.

An incomparable gift for secret dragonologists everywhere! For true believers only. Don't let it fall into the wrong hands!

The groundbreaking Ology series has sold more than 18 MILLION copies worldwide.

Reviews for Dragonology: New 20th Anniversary Edition

'Templar's brilliant Dragonology books create a set of resources on the wildlife and science of raising or studying dragons to gladden the heart of any would-be student of these magnificent creatures. Dr Ernest Drake gives us all manner of fascinating details on habitats, temperaments and training regimes, which play into that greatest of desires for children (and let's be honest, many adults too) - that dragons might really exist.' - Middle Grade Strikes Back
