The pictures are life-size, and the sales are larger than life: Life-Size Dinosaurs has already sold almost 400,000 copies! And now, the bestselling series features its first fantastic creatures...and a children's favorite.

 

Continuing the success of this humongous, eye-popping series, Life-Size Dragons ventures into the realm of the imagination. We know that dragons are popular--both Dragonhenge and The Book of the Dragon became big hits with a devoted fan base.  And here they are breathing fire in ten pullout flaps by digital art pioneer Fred Gambino...and bigger than ever before. There's even a close-up look into the dragon's deathly jaws and its red-hot flaming mouth. But that's not all: the text--written by Hugo Award-winner John Grant--delves into mythology to reveal the natural history, evolution, anatomy, behavior, and every other aspect of a variety of dragon species. How clever are they, really? Do any still live in the modern world? Dragon-obsessed youngsters (and which one isn't?) will want to look and learn.

 

John Grant is the pseudonym of Paul Barnett , a former editor and editorial consultant. He has written both fiction and nonfiction, specializing in sci-fi and fantasy. Among his many honors are: two Hugo Awards, the World Fantasy Award, and the rare British Science Fiction Association Special Award.

 

Fred Gambino has done groundbreaking work in the world of digital art, and is a prolific illustrator of book covers--especially for science fiction and fantasy stories. He produced backgrounds and concept drawings for the film Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius .
