A creature made of myth and dreams. Imagine a scaly creature more than a hundred feet long that spews fire and beats its wings to fly. Or imagine another creature with the head of a camel, horns like a deer, and paws like a tiger. Different cultures imagine dragons differently. An English dragon might terrorize the countryside, and a Chinese dragon might cause a drought, a flood, or even a hurricane. In this stunning book, richly illustrated by Eujin Kim Neilan, Laurence Pringle explains how people came to believe in dragons and offers young readers an engaging look at dragons from cultures around the world.
"Dragons may be friendly or scary, Pringle explains, depending on “when and where you lived." He explores the possible origins of dragon folklore and summarizes Egyptian, Norwegian, Greek, and other frightening Western dragon legends, including those of St. George, John Smith, and the Lambton Wurm."
"The book is interesting with lots of materials without being overwhelming. It provides a good introduction to dragon myths in world literature. The pictures, done in acrylic, are strong and powerful. Most are a full page with rich colors and bold action. The book will be a great addition to any collection whose users are into the current dragon stories. Recommended."
