You even get to open Pandora's box, and there's a little pouch containing facsimiles of the oak leaves of the Oracle. You have to touch them and play with them even if you can't read the text the book seems appealing to kids of all ages. Monsterology The Complete Book of Monstrous Beasts" by Ernest Drake is, a fictional children's book about about fictional monsters including unicorns, griffins, the kraken, etc.

It's an exciting and innovative way of getting someone interested in the subject and I, for one, would have been totally absorbed by it as a boy. Information aside, the real "treasures", however, lie inside a lattice-fronted, die-cut cabinet of curiosities set deep inside the back cover. The creatures and the information are a bit scattered throughout the book due to its scrapbook design, but that helps to make the book seem more "real". My only regret is that because of how many species there are and how short the book is, it couldn't go into greater detail about the races.His record includes beasts of the earth, water, air, and semi-human creatures found around the world, drawing from the mythology of myriad cultures and presenting his findings as fact. Leonard's Forest, Sussex, England, in the late nineteenth century and to have issued a very limited run - some 100 copies - of DRAGONOLOGY in 1895. Each year they have a rack of books based on the summer reading lists from local schools along with a binder with info from each school. The book was part textbook style, talking about the creatures lives, diets, health and more, and part travel guide where the monsterologist discusses his travels looking for these monsters.

I will (most likely) not be rating all of the "ology" books I will be reading, because that would end up being a lot of ratings lol (especially since I also checked some out from the library). There is a darkness in the shading of the portraits and expression of the characters that indicates “something of the night” about them. A fabulous tome for those who love legendary beasts that still wander among us, this lush and luxurious look at an astounding array of creatures offers everything a true believer would want to know. The fictitious "Dr Ernest Drake" is back from Dragonology to guide us through this extraordinary world.

Ernest Drake was determined to bring the subject of dragons under the burgeoning umbrella of the nineteenth-century natural sciences. Monsterology, the study of fabulous beasts other than Dragons, was originally considered a branch of Wizardology rather than a field in its own right.
