A Practical Guide to Dragon Riding

A follow up to the runaway hit, A Practical Guide to Dragons, this delightful tome details everything your child needs to know in order to find, train, and raise a dragon. For example, every dragon egg must be hatched under specific and very unique conditions. A bronze dragon egg must be raised near the sea, a silver dragon egg must be encased in ice, while a gold dragon egg must be incubated in fire. But hatching is just the beginning! The book describes the individualized care needed after the dragon has left the egg, and tells, in detail, how to train it to become your mount-- with the highest degree of respect, of course! As either a read-aloud or read alone, this book will keep your child's imagination soaring! (Wizards of the Coast, Inc., $12.95)
