Doocey Again: Dragon Edition

dragon1

Porter discovered a book called Dragonology (A Field Guide To Dragons) when we spent half the day at the bookstore.

dragomology

It’s designed as if it were written in 1898 by a dragonologist who provides information about dragon spotting and their habitats, and exhorts readers to continue his investigations. Best of all, the book contains small envelopes, each filled with lushly colored cardboard pieces that can be assembled to form twelve different types of dragons. They’re like manly paper dolls for boys.

I’ve written previously about the other -ology books ( Wizardology , Pirateology , Egyptology) and this one may be the best yet.

Why are all my Doocey posts reptile-related?

  1. Awesome! Although all I hear about right now is Pokemon.

    I think I’m going to cut my ears off.

  2. Ooh, I like that. What age group is into that sort of thing? I have 1 Godson & 2 cousins (8,11 &13)I’m always shopping for in dismay b/c they have everything. This is something they wouldn’t have and it doesn’t require batteries or electricity. Maybe their mommas will grasp that concept as well 🙂

  3. We have the Mythology (excellent book!) and Egyptology books. I know the Dragon book will make it’s way into our house – I’m thinking of it for a “end of school” gift.
    thanks for the idea!

  4. My older boy is SOOOOO into this eries right now. I too, am glad to not be hearing about Pokemon for once. Thanks for sharing-it’s nice to be able to “talk” about boy stuff. All of my friends have girls. :o)

  5. **Oops-I forgot the ‘S’ in series.

  6. I’ve seen those books, and if I were a 10 year old boy, I should be in love with them. I want to own them myself.
