  If you are a young dragonologist who has a good store of courage (and a large supply of woolen underwear), then observing frost dragons is something that you should definitely try. If you think you have what it takes, then you should read this official S.A.S.D. (Secret and Ancient Society of Dragonologists) guide.

  The guide begins by explaining how a budding dragonologist can identify a frost dragon. Luckily, this species has a very distinctive coloration. They are white, blue, or pink. Though they live at the poles, you might see them flying overhead in warmer climes because frost dragons migrate semiannually between the north and south poles.

  Seeing frost dragons in their natural habitat is hazardous in the extreme, but it can be very rewarding. Thankfully, this guide gives you very useful instructions on how to prepare for a polar adventure. You will also learn how to track frost dragons and how to behave should you encounter one. If you befriend a frost dragon, or find an orphaned chick, you will find clear directions on how to train and take care of your new companion.

  This fantastic guide will surely be invaluable for any dragonologist who has an interest in studying frost dragons. It is not only packed with excellent information, but it also is full of wonderful illustrations, maps, and diagrams. A model of a frost dragon is included so that you can see what a frost dragon looks in three dimensions.

  This is one of the stellar titles in the Dragonology series.
