Find out the fascinating stories of ten real-life dragons, the myths and legends surrounding them, their discoveries and how they survive today.

For centuries, dragons have captured our imaginations, guarding troves of treasure and breathing out fire. They appear in many myths and legends from around the world, some soaring through the air on scaly wings; some lurking in caves underground and some diving the depths of the seas and oceans.

While there is, sadly, no such thing as a fire-breathing dragon, there are still dragons alive today in the animal kingdom. One of them can even fly. This book brings together the stories of ten real-life dragons, with fascinating facts mixed with some folklore. There are also tales of how these extraordinary creatures were discovered and about their adaptations for surviving in the wild.

Are you ready for the wildlife safari of a lifetime?

This high-interest approach to the natural world shows the diversity of nature, evolution and adaptation and can be used to support the science curriculum study of living things at key stage two.

Full-colour photographs combined with illustrations make this a beautiful and fascinating introduction to real-life dragons around the world.
