"Build the Dragon" by Dugald Steer, Jonathan Woodward and Douglas Carrell follows the template of their other build-it titles by offering a truly fantastic book filled with legends, stories, facts and figures about the mythical beasts before letting you loose to build your very own working model of a big red angry looking flapping-winged dragon.
Starting off by browsing the book, we were thoroughly impressed at the quality of the presentation and the illustrations and though we've seen many mythical beast books before, and many books discussing dragons, this book would actually have been good enough to stand up on its own two feet without the aid of a big angry scary cardboard dragon to back it up.
We travel the world, reading about how different cultures interpret the legend of these big scaly monsters, each country having their own distinct and unique 'take' on dragons...
|Fire-breathing, lethal, menacing. You really don't want to mess with these fellows|
Once it's built though, it does look really impressive standing there menacingly, I have to say!
|Dragons across the world, just about every country has its own dragon legends|
"Build the Dragon" is out now, published by Templar Publishing.
