For Elizabeth and Ceridwen and all the dragon-lovers out there. I have no idea where this is still available - or if - but if you can find it, pick yourself up a copy. It's a truly beautiful flight of fancy wrapped around a "scientific" explanation of dragon flight. And the illustrations are just stunning.
ETA: I just re-read this and it is as delightful as I remembered it -- although not 5-star delightful, and there is a truly upsetting effect/affect mis-use that I certainly hadn't noticed 25 years ago when I first read it.
And yes, I actually did RE-read the text, not just peruse the beautiful illustrations, so I'm taking this as another notch on my book-challenge bookcase.
