What child doesn’t, at one time or another, have a fascination with dragons? Scrace’s intricately designed, beautifully painted dragons combine with Legg’s detailed text to produce a view of dragons and their place throughout history. One highlight is a world map on which 25 numbered countries and their respective dragons are attributed thanks to a handy key. (A quibble: the small text can be hard to read against a blue ocean.) The 20 sections vary from one to three pages and each feature one or more dragons. While every section has an introduction, it is the description of each illustration that commands attention. Readers will pore over the busy, festival-like riot of color and text. “Dragon Facts” and a seriously needed glossary give great closure to a book that could fly off library shelves. Grades 3-7. --J.
