This light-hearted fare is a quick but entertaining read containing basic information about the dragons of Krynn (the world that is the home of the DragonLance realm.) It is presented as a work created by Sindri Suncatcher, a Kender who may just be the Greatest Kender Wizard Who Ever Lived (according to him anyway!)

The book is chock full of wonderful illustrations and diagrams and givew the reader a lot of information about the abilities and lifestyles of the ten major species of dragons that inhabit the world of Krynn. There is information about their habitat, social structure, combat styles and much more.

To make the work more fun, Sindri gives us all of this information himself in the light-hearted, open-eyed style that is typical of any kender character. This makes the book one that is wonderful for those of all ages and it seems that it ends all to quickly. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0786941642, Hardcover)

Did you know dragons hate sweet flavors? Or that the Draconic word for ugly is "nurh"? Or that the best place to find a green dragon is behind a waterfall? Any dragon buff worth his or her salt needs to know the ins and outs of these frightful, spectacular creatures. And Sindri Suncatcher, the wizard apprentice narrator of A Practical Guide to Dragons is just the man for the job. Although he forbids potential readers from opening the book, the insatiably curious will ignore the warning and begin reading Sindri's "scrolls" to learn what the sometimes foolishly fearless kender (small, mischievous hobbit-like man) has learned about dragons.

This gorgeously illustrated book by Lisa Trumbauer will provide hours of absorbed entertainment for humans in search of the nittiest grittiest details about dragons, from anatomy and physiology to combat techniques to society to language to the many types of dragons. Packed with details, it also is infused with sly humor throughout, with many allusions to Sindri's adventures with dragons, as well as to his colorful family (the book is dedicated to Aunt Moonbeam). --Emilie Coulter
