Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lesley Moore Vossen
One of four books published by Capstone Press about various aspects of dragons, this title describes the behaviors and the habitats of dragons. The first few chapters cover dragon lairs, dragons' relationship with people, how dragons hunt and how they mate and raise their young. Words that might be unfamiliar to children (hoard, lair, carnivore, etc.) are boldface in the text and then defined on the page where they are used. The fourth chapter covers types of dragons: Wyvern, Amphithere, Eastern, Lindwyrm Hydra, Cockatrice, etc. and outlines their size, home, colors, natural weapons and prey. Interspersed throughout the text are Dragon Facts ("A dragon's true name is a tightly guarded secret. Rumors say that knowing a dragon's true name gives a person power over it.") A glossary, a short bibliography and a listing of relevant Internet sites complete the book. I can imagine that young readers will find this a delightful way to hone their reading skills. For boys of eight or so, who love collecting facts and who have an interest in mythological beasts, this will be a sure winner. Reviewer: Lesley Moore Vossen
