About this title

Synopsis:

Filled with dragon lore, this oversized pop-up fantasy book explores the mystical and frightening worlds of the Chinese Dragon, the Amphiptere, the Lindworm, the dreaded Wyvern, and the famous Dragon of Saint George.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-7?Bone-crunching and brimstone-belching dragons have captured the popular imagination for more than a millennium. So, logically, a collection of 3-D dragons from Hildebrandt should be a sure thing. And it is. This large-format picture book features five quasi-historical creatures?the Wyvern, Amphiptere, Lindworm, the dragon slain by St. George, and a Chinese dragon?that delightfully pop up and jump off the pages. Dragons is great for classroom or story-time reading; the figures are well engineered, colorful, and large (the Chinese dragon measures 27 inches from crest to tail). Peterson occasionally alludes to some real people and events?Marco Polo is said to have confronted Lindworms on his travels?but, mainly, these brief introductions to dragon lore should lure readers to explore the fascinating genre further.?John Sigwald, Unger Memorial Library, Plainview, TX
