The Truth About Dragons
by Thomas Kingsley Troupe and Illustrated by Jeff Ebbeler
Dragons have roared their way through popular fairy tales for many years. Have you ever wondered why dragons look the way they do, where they might hide, or how they scare their enemies? Journey through this book to find out the truth about dragons.
The pictures are quite colorful. They are very bright, vibrant and rich as if hand drawn illustrations with colored pencils. What a treat to the eyes! There are lots of blues, greens, oranges, purples, reds, browns, yellows... Every color of the spectrum!
This book is an easy quick read. The pictures of the dragons seem larger than life just like dragons!
The book begins with "Here Be Dragons" that tells of dragons. "Stories tell of dragons that are big and scary. But are dragons real? Of course not!" We then move in to the history of dragons and where they come from. The oldest tales started in Europe and China.
Where do they come from? Do they live a long time?Do they get stronger or weaker with age? What do dragons look like? What is the difference between dragons from Europe and dragons from China?
Where do dragons live? Do they live in lairs, caves, homes, castles, swimming pools?
Do they spit fire, acid, water, or slime?
I won't tell you! You have to read the story!
