    .

    I have many of the the ology books. Monsterology, dragonology, egyptology, ect. This book really reflects on those and is great for kids. Being a 10 year old, my opinion might not attract others (adults) . But this book really isnt that different from the big ology books. This book has a bit of an awkward ending, but i like it. I love almost all the ology books!

    Charming

    I've read this book as well as the other two currently released, so of course they're really good. Time and time again I've read it, and time and time again I have enjoyed it. Being one of the few female dragonologists, I van definitely say this will charm the young, as well as the older.

    I first got this because I have a few -ology books and it looked interesting.
    I got this book a while back and (I think) finished it but had no memory of any thing other than the first few pages so I started reading it again. I plopped down in my favorite chair and started reading. I have no idea how long it took but I got two thirds done then and finished it later in bed.
    With a really interesting plot and excellent characters if you love adventurous fantasies then this is your book.
    P.S. I must warn you I'm 10 with an intellect of 16

    I only read....

    I only read Wizardology. It was very detailed and had fun stuff to make and do, including a scavenger hunt kind of thing within the pages.

    As I read THE DRAGON'S EYE, I kept getting a feeling of deja vu. It took a while to figure out why, but then it came to me. THE DRAGON'S EYE reminded me a little of the SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS books. There was that familiar emphasis on conducting research, and recording findings in little notebooks, and solving problems. Only instead of three orphans dodging Count Olaf, THE DRAGON'S EYE focuses on a brother and sister trying to escape the evil designs of the inferior dragonologist, Ignatius Crook. Unfortunately, this one didn't have the same humor in it that I enjoyed so much in the SOUE books. <BR/><BR/>Overall, I have mixed feelings about THE DRAGON'S EYE. In the plus column, the novel was heavy on dragons of various types. They all have names and unique personalities. Also, it had an element of boy versus girl competition that seemed to resolve itself reasonably well. <BR/><BR/>On the other hand, the frequent references to dragon diaries and research methods disrupted the action. Doubtless that was the point -- to identify the importance of learning about a subject before jumping into it and conducting a poor study. But still, the execution was a little heavy-handed for my taste. <BR/><BR/>For young dragon lovers, this would probably be a popular title. I emphasize the word "young." THE DRAGON'S EYE seems geared to a younger audience than many of the books reviewed here at TeensReadToo. My 14-year-old son read it, too, and he was disappointed because it definitely felt "too young" for him. But for budding fantasy lovers who can't get enough dragons, this one has the potential to be a winner.

    A MUST READ BOOK!!!!!!!!

    This Dragonology book brings out the adventures of kids who are interested in dragons. When i finished the book i just couldnt believe it was over. Whenever the next dragonology book comes out i will be waiting like a cat waiting for a mouse. This book is really a must read because even if you dont believe in dragons right now after reading this book you WILL BELIEVE!! This book incourages you to want to read books all about magical creatures,magic,and Egypt you should follow up on the Dragonology Chronicals. They are a MUST READ and a MUST HAVE 4 LIFE!! These kind of books make you want to read them over and over again!!!!!!!!
