To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Has everything in the "complete book of dragons" cept for the map of the whole vikings, the cover is really pretty but if i knew, i would just have bought :the complete book of dragons", i bought 2 thinking they would be different but nopeee... :'c
I saw this book in a shop and was taken with the beautifully attractive and quality cover and binding. I flicked briefly through its pages, and saw what I thought might be a magical and entertaining read with beautiful artwork. However; what started out as amusing and entertaining, eventually became rather silly and ridiculous...
The book itself is beautifully designed, extremely good quality and most certainly attractive to look at, but much of the magic and fantasy of the dragons and their descriptions is lost due to perhaps an over zealous author and illustrator that becomes somewhat careless as the book progresses. I think that younger children might also find the format a little difficult to read.
I really only wanted to give this book a two star rating – but it’s still simply too beautiful to look at and so had top give it extra one.
This is really a great book. My son LOVES it and has read it about a million times. He can tell us all about every type of dragon and this has really helped us feed his love of reading. HOWEVER, this is the SAME book as the other "complete guide to dragons" - the cover is just different. I bought this for my son for Christmas thinking I found a different book. The covers are very different (the other one we already had is just brown, this one is gold and looks like a "better" version). Disappointed that this is just the same book with a different cover. He does love it and now keeps a copy in each of our cars, but wish I would've known so I could've spent money on something he didn't already own.
