About Dragon Mystic

I fell in love with dragons when I read Tea With the Black Dragon, and never looked back. Not the clunky winged Medieval dragons that ate cows, the graceful Asian dragons that could fly without wings. Later I discovered the elegant Welsh dragons, red and white, as described by R.J. Stewart in his books on the historical Merlin.

    Purchase for the Dragon model I originally bought this for my nephews, who have a fascination with dragons and such at the moment. It’s definitely a result of the Harry Potter phenomenon, but the similarity ends at its “magical” quality. Its intent is the opening of minds to the hidden worlds of the imagination, and a rekindling of young peoples’ interests in areas of mythology and classic literature. Supposedly the work of the last dragonmaster, the book aims to dispel the myths on dragons, recalling Hagrid’s comments that they are “very misunderstood creatures”. While Dragonology has lots of bells and whistles and moving parts, this is a simple guide to tracking and identifying dragons of various types, and the information within can also be found in either the first Dragonology text, or the Handbook. The Dragon model, used for identifying dragons in the wild, is quite a treat, however, and easily assembled, though I would expect it to be easier for 10+ year olds. The model itself is made from very thick, durable cardboard (almost like wood), and, for the price of less than $10, it’s a decent value. While the tracking guide is great for stimulating the imagination of children (of all ages, apparently), it’s a slightly more involved text than Dragonology (and on par with the Handbook, from which it was derived), and therefore also likely to appeal to children 10+.

    All becomes clear It seems that someone has mistakenly entered the blurb related to the original Dragonology book, which obviously does have the tactile samples, dragon dust, etc. This is a completely new book, with a superb dragon model(mobile)that you can construct. Rumor has it, too, that this is the first in a series of different dragon models that they’re going to release. How cool is that!Reginald Honeyharvester – SADS : )

    A great addition to the dragonology line. I saw this book yesterday and had to buy it for my 7 yr old dragonologist. He was very excited to see it when he got home from school. He spent a lot of time reading the book and playing with the model last night. He certainly gives it 2 thumbs up.
