Richly illustrated, and with detailed appendices of notable dragon sites around the United Kingdom, this is an essential dragonologists guide.

Review by Xleptodactylous
Whilst not to be taken too seriously, this book is a rare delight that combines sustainable materials, whimsical fantasies and wonderful knowledge. It is the everlasting question that we may never fully realise; why are dragons universally known? One would suspect dinosaurs had something to do with it.
