“After reading this book, you'll know what to call those groups of magical creatures you saw yesterday: a splash of mermaids, a grace of unicorns, or a faculty of centaurs. Jacqueline Ogburn includes a charming description of each creature, while Nicoletta Ceccoli's colorful, mixed media illustrations evoke an enchanted world for young readers.”
-- Carol Moyer, Quail Ridge Books, Raleigh, NC


Description

To catch a glimpse of one unicorn is lucky;
to see a grace of unicorns is to witness a marvel.
In this book, you will also find . . .

a riddle of sphinx,
a splash of mermaids,
a dignity of dragons,
and more.

With inventive groupings, luminous artwork, and a fact-filled glossary, A Dignity of Dragons makes for a bestiary to treasure. For within its pages, you’ll learn about all the creatures you may be lucky enough to see, if you know where to look.
