Top 10 Tuesday: Books About Dragons

August 15, 2017

Dragons! I have been obsessed with dragons since childhood, watching cartoons with dragons (Return of the KingThe Flight of Dragons), copying from drawing books about dragons, and battling dragons of all sorts in video games (primarily the Final Fantasy series, of which I've played every title). These mythical creatures inhabit our imaginations, our play, and our HBO Now queue. So here's a stack of excellent books containing dragons of all types. Some of the dragons in these books like to hide-and-seek. Some play nice, but some are just terrible. And some travel through time in order to right the spicy salsa wrongdoings of the past.
