A Dignity of Dragons
by Jacqueline K. Ogburn
illustrated by Nicoletta Ceccoli

MeiLi … who has always loved anything in the fantasy genre … picked out this delightful book last week at the library.  It is a book of collective nouns for magical beasts.

“Everyone has heard of groups of animals ~ a pride of lions, a charm of hummingbirds, a school of fish.
If you came upon magical beasts gathered together, what would you call them? Perhaps you would be lucky enough to see … “

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.
