    2nd Edition
    John Topsell; Editor, Joseph Nigg - All books by this author

    The popular dragons from this title’s first edition have just gotten bigger! With larger color illustrations and larger type on larger pages than ever, this book’s brand-new edition is certain to attract that unique set of young pet owners who prefer keeping dragons to owning a puppy, kitten, or goldfish. Kids who delight in humorous flights of imagination will love this beautifully illustrated dragon owner’s manual. It shows walking, flying, fire-breathing, and sea-going dragons, describing the characteristics of each and the equipment and supplies every dragon owner should have on hand. Boys and girls will learn everything they need to know about the raising process, including—
    • Selecting a dragon breed from among the many that are available
    • Building the perfect enclosure
    • Hatching a dragon’s egg
    • Feeding, grooming, training, and riding
    • Showing a dragon in dragon show competition . . .and much, more.
    And kids will be both amused and delighted by the hundreds of stunning illustrations that complement the text. Bonus Feature: Kids can decorate their bedroom or playroom wall with a dramatic 14" x 19" Dragon Poster, folded and enclosed in every copy of this book. (Ages 9 and older)

    Praise for the previous edition
    From the reviews:
    “These inviting, clearly written biographies are packed with information….these titles offer plenty of facts for report writers.”
    School Library Journal, November 2006

    “This intriguing guide starts out by asking the important question: Should you own a dragon? Well duh! … Dragon-owning is a timeless art, and How to Raise and Keep a Dragon is a delightful, encyclopedic exploration of all things dragon. … It rivals Dinotopia in imagination, although How to Raise and Keep a Dragon is more of a guidebook than storybook. The durable cover features a standard Western dragon with a ruby ‘jeweled’ eye. Your customers will snap this up for a favorite nephew or other young dragon lover.”
    New Age Retailer, 2006

    “Younger teen readers ages twelve to fourteen will be enthralled by this book. The illustrations of the various dragon breeds are superb and give off the illusion of reality….If one is looking for a lighthearted, entertaining addition to the collection, look no further.”
    VOYA (Voice of Youth Advocates), Jonatha Master, October 2006
