The fictitious "Dr Ernest Drake" is back from Dragonology to guide us through this extraordinary world.

While the 15 monsters profiled come from the Western tradition, their homes range from ancient Egypt to Russia to Haiti, with an occasional nod to Asian and North American native traditions as well.This one also had a lot more things that you can interact with and they were just delightful to manipulate. My only regret is that because of how many species there are and how short the book is, it couldn't go into greater detail about the races.

This is a used book - there is no escaping the fact it has been read by someone else and it will show signs of wear and previous use. It's a fun book on a fun subject, but in a series where production values are extremely high, it's certainly not one of the finest. Monsterology, the study of fabulous beasts other than Dragons, was originally considered a branch of Wizardology rather than a field in its own right.

Each year they have a rack of books based on the summer reading lists from local schools along with a binder with info from each school.
