    Part of the Dragonology series, this wee delight of a book is mostly a compendium of other other Dragonology books with little variation on the information. It contains beautiful illustrations and some fun moments, but as a whole it's rather lack-lustre and feels like one too many in an exhausted series. The other books of the series will fair you better.

    Anda seorang wanita?Suka menggunakan persiapan yang berkilauan?Berarti Anda adalah target empuk santapan naga!(menurut info dari buku ini lho....)Buku ini berisikan segala hal yang berurusan dengan naga. Ilmu yang berhubungan dengan naga dikenal dengan istilah Dragonologi. Buku ini merupakan salah satu bacaan guna memahami Dragonologi .Ada sejarah biologi naga, laboratorium naga, jenis naga hingga cara menjinakkan naga. Salah satu tips menjinakkan naga misalnya sebagai berikut; ambil cermin, taburi dengan debu naga. Lalu letakkan batu safir atau batu mulia sejenisnya di luar sarang naga. Saat sang naga keluar untuk melihatnya, keluarkan cermin tadi dengan cepat sehingga sang naga melihat bayangannya sendiri, dan teriakkan ”Ecce Narcisso Draconus Attractivee” Mantra itu akan membuat seekor naga patuh, tapi waspadalah saat kekuatannya mulai lunturBuku ini juga mengisahkan, seperti juga makhluk lainnya, naga mengalami evolusi. Seperti yang diungkapkan oleh Edward Topsell dalam The History of Four-footed Beasts (1607)Dibagikan juga mengenai lima hal yang harus diketahui dalam urusan Dragonologiis, dikenal dengan sebutan Lima K Dragonologis , yaitu1. Kerja lapangan2. Kesiapan3. Keberanian4. Kejujuran5. KematianGambar ilustrasi yang memberitahukan bahwa dalan hal kesiapan, jubah tahan api sangatlah penting membuat saya tertawa lebar. Tatapan heran para penumpang transjakarta, serta colekan teman baru menyadarkan ketapa kerasnya saya tertawa, jadi malu he he he. Coba perhatikan saja gambar seorang pria yang sedang berlindung dari semburan naga. Ada sesuatu hal yang membuat saya tertawa lepas. Jika jeli, anda bisa melihatnya juga kok ^_^Buku ini juga menceritakan berbedaan antara naga dan ular laut. Banyak yang tidak tahu bahwa naga dan ular laut adalah dua jenis makhluk yang berbeda. Misalnya saja naga sangat menyukai harta dan benda-benda yang berkilauan serta terkenal sebagai penimbun harta. Itu sebabnya banyak cerita yang mengisahkan naga sebagai penjaga harta karun yang handal. Sementara ular laut lebih menyukai kapal kayu dan tidak menimbun harta.Selain itu, diungkapkan juga berbagai manfaat dari seluruh bagian tubuh naga hingga kotorannya yeeeeeeeeeeeek!Selain bermanfaat untuk perlindungan saat menyusuri daerah liar, ternyata cocok unutk pupuk tanaman. mana ada makhluk yang berani mengganggu jika saat kita lewat yang keluar adalah aroma seekor naga. Namun ada juga peringatan, bahwa kotoran naga betani bisa menarik perhatian naga jantan. Wah bisa-bisa bukannya menjadi subur, malah tanamannya habis dirusak oleh sang naga jantan.Saya sempat bingung saat membaca sebuah judul bab. Ditulis Laboratotium Naga namun perasaan saya menyatakan ini harusnya Laboratorium Naga. Apalagi judul itu yang ada di daftar isi juga tertulis Loboratorium Naga.Secara keseluruhan buku ini cukup membuat saya lebih memahami tentang naga walau halamannya relatif sedikit. Saya juga terhibur dengan aneka ragam pengetahuan yang ada. Kenapa selalu tokoh naga yang digambarkan sebagai penjaga harta. Apa perbedaan aneka jenis naga serta bagaimana cara menanganinya. Seandainya (masih) ada naga di dekat saya, minimal saya tahu harus membaca mantera yang mana.Jika HP mempunyai buku ini, tentu ia tak akan kesulitan saat harus berurusan dengan naga.Dibandingkan usaha keras mendapatkan buku ini selama seminggu, saya cukup merasa puas....jadi bolehlah bintang 4.Menghafal mantra dulu ah..............------------------------------>Orang pertama yang harus saya jitaq adalah Silvero!Sebagai manager, harusnya dia membantu saya mengatur waktu dan memilih bacaan yang bisa meningkatkan kemampuan saya. Hanya karena meminjamkan sebuah buku lain yang juga keluaran Penerbit Liliput, saya jadi menghabiskan waktu sbeberapa hari untuk berlarian di Mbah Google. Penasaran dengan penerbit yang ini. Saya sibuk mengirim sms, e-mail bahkan fax guna mencari info mengenai penerbit yang satu ini, alih-alih mengerjakan ”PR”Orang kedua yang harus dicubit kenca........................ng adalah Boni. Curhatnya membuat saya terobsesi mencari buku ini. Berawal dari berbagi mimpinya ingin mengoleksi aneka ensiklopedia yang berhubungan dengan dunia fantasi. Sampai-samapai i ia rela merogoh koceknya demi membeli sebuah buku melalui salah satu situs penjualan.Harganya lumayan fantastis untuk sebuah buku bekas! Saat melihat buku ini dan buku satu saya yakin 1000 % dia pasti berteriak,"Ma.................u!!!” betulkan dugaan saya.Terakhir , yang ini cubitan musti dikirim pakai paket, Franciska Irma.Salah satu buku pesanannya belum pernah saya dengar. Pensaran jadinya. Ternyata buku pesanannya yang dibilang mantap juga merupakan keluaran penerbit ini.Sayang....sayang....sayang.....Penerbit ini sudah tiada dan berganti namaSemoga buku baru yang dijanjikan segera keluar dan bisa saya nikmatihttp://www.facebook.com/note.php?save...

    This is a beautiful book designed as a textbook for how to recognize and deal with dragons. There are lots of interesting illustrations, tables for identifying dragons, jewels, etc., methods of capturing dragons, etc. There are three pull out sheets in envelopes, much like in the Griffon and Sabine books, one of which is a card for filling out like an ID card to show you are a dragon trainer. There are also a few pages of beautiful stickers in an attachment at the back. It's a fun, interesting and entertaining book for anyone who likes a little fantasy.

    Muy divertido, interesante y curioso. Está lleno de ilustraciones y datos curiosos, los dibujos son preciosos, y tiene detalles como sobres con hechizos, polvo de dragón, muestras de piel... xD ¡Es muy original! Una amiga tenía este libro cuando yo era pequeña y me dejó leer varias partes, pero no pude verlo entero. Me alegro de haber podido terminarlo por fin y creo que lo he disfrutado tanto como lo habría disfrutado entonces.Me ga gustado mucho y lo recomiendo a cualquier auténtico fan de los dragones.

    Fun, funny, and educational. Every dragon lover or serious student of dragons needs to own this book (Charity, this means you!)The fact that I am a library dragon,and the voice of the Platteview Central Homework Hotline, made my favorite quote from this book a no-brainer:"The dangers of seeking homework help even from friendly dragons should never be underestimated."

    This book is so cool beacause it teaches you about dragons and how to train and tame and feed them and it teaches how to speak dragon launguage and the pages look cool.This kind of realates to me beacause i like to make secrat launguages like this book teaches you.Also at the end of the book it gives you sentinses to practice on.Overall this was a great book and i loved it.

    Read this in elementary and really influenced me, even today as an almost-adult still hooked onto the thought of taking care of dragons. Pretty sure all the info in all his books is what really sparked the imagination in me and i highly recommend it for those quiet kids obsessed with mythical creatures ;)

    This is such a wonderfully fun book for kids of most ages. The little surprise envelopes with secrets, all those cool stickers, solving the puzzle. Gonna have to get more to enjoy for when the grandkids get big enough.

    This book is such a cute companion to the full-sized version - Dragonology, by the same authors - as it gives readers a taste of what this series of books has to offer when it successfully covers a mythological topic. The writing may be a bit juvenile for adult readers (hello, it is for kids), but I still really appreciate the time and effort that went into the design of this book, which balances text and artwork quite well and succeeds in a pleasing overall aesthetic. It's also quite cute that they chose to make this pocket version more than just a miniature representation of the full-sized edition, and tackled the subject matter in the form of a student's handbook - giving basic information about dragons, assigning "homework" for each thematic topic, and acting like a field guidebook rather than a tome of information (which certainly would not have worked in this small format). Final verdict: a surprising delight that is sure to engage young readers and remind adults of their childhoods.

    This is an awesome book! It's made out to be like a school book, except all about dragons. It's great!

    I love that this book was listed under the non-fiction section of my local library. After reading it I couldn't help but laugh at the "seriousness" of the articles and drawings. I know that many children will love to feel that their interest in dragons is taken seriously. For this reason I chose for my twin fiction book, "How to Train your Dragon". Most people will recognize this title as several popular movies and even a children's series but what isn't well-known is that these movies first started out as a children's literature series. So to pair it with the "Dragonology Handbook" is the perfect pairing.Title: How to Train Your Dragon: The Reluctant DragonPublished: April 2nd 2013 by PulptasticASIN: B00C6MD9IU

    Lovely book with wonderful drawings and creative descriptions about everything to do with dragons (their dung, their general color/shape, their habits, their language, and details about how to go about studying dragons). The book is set up as a workbook for new students to Dragonology. It includes lessons, tests, and general information for the student. The book does a good job of presenting dragon information as though it's a class available to everyone. I particularly loved the little 'secret' pockets in the book, that you opened up to pull out letters/maps, etc. The book also comes with a huge number of dragon stickers.

    A follow-up to 2003’s Dragonology: A Complete Book of Dragons, this handbook for dragon enthusiasts is replete with drawings, charts, codes, riddles, and all the information one could want on various species of dragons. Their appearance, diet, habitat, and forms of attack are listed, along with instructions on how to write in dragon script, perform dragon magic and dragon first aid, and more. Printed in attention-getting faux antique style, this book will be in high demand from elementary students who may get so caught up in the dragon world that they forget it’s all fantasy.

    This is a great book for kids with wild imaginations. In this book, you ARE a dragonology student. You get your own library card, letter of acceptance and everything. Then in the chapters, you are taught the practical information in a textbook format. At the end of each chapter you have homework to do.There are activities, quizzes, and more. Fantastic pictures as well.

    This book was awesome, this gave information about dragons while including humor. They're detailed and sometimes have random ads for dragon equipment. On the last chapter, there are dragon riddles for you to guess what they're hinting at. They even use real life examples and hinting where dragons or types of dragons would be. I love this book.

    I didn't really enjoy this book. I can understand the idea of it, but I felt it was just too little vague. Might be interesting for the dragon lover, but for the average reader, it just didn't tap my interest.

    It's all about presentation. This book is very well laid out by an author with quite an imagination. For those of you that don't already know, it's a book made to look like a little textbook that teaches you about dragons. It's very cute.

    It was a very educational book on dragons (my favorite subject!) It was a great book and it even gives you homework! It's also a great book for fantasy lovers.

    Not as interactive as the actual Dragonology book and a lot of the information in this book is the same as the original. However, this is a good book for a younger reader who is not old enough to have the original.

  • Galadriel Johnson

    Really love this one as well as the others in the series. Although, there aren't as many interactive features, this contains much more writing than the others. The illustrations are nice and again the writing is not stuffy or overbearing. Another lovely one for anyone with an imagination.
