The best book in the Practical guide series printed by the Wizards of the Coast as supplementary material for D&D players. I remember picking this up in WalMart whenever they sold those books there back in HS. It covers the main dragons of the Chromatic (Evil) and Metallic (Benevolent) alignment. These books have incredible art and entertaining facts, stats and trivia regarding these dragons, like language, favorite treasures and even diagrams of their lair's structure. It allows one to immerse themselves in the lore quite easily. I don't play D&D but this book is a great fit into any dragon lover's library.

I also own the Vampire and Dragon Riding guide too! You can visit my reviews for my thoughts on those! ( )

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. ( )
