5.0 out of 5 stars A fabulous way to build really easy Dragons! Oct. 13 2009
By Katherine L. Hannaford - Published on Amazon.com

Ingredients for a dragon- wire coathangers, newsprint, masking tape, old bedsheets, flour and water- Dan the monster man has made it that easy! This book is in full colour and is a shorter version of Dan's new book Papier-Mache Monsters: Turn Trinkets and Trash into Magnificent Monstrosities. All steps are really easy to follow- my high school Art class has followed them and if you have any questions leave Dan a question on his blog [...]. Dan is really quick to respond with lots of great detail and he has made online videos on making monsters and dragons.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book from a great teacher! Jan. 1 2009
By Humita - Published on Amazon.com

I loved this book! It has great pictures showing step by step on how to make a fabulous dragon and a short but sweet written explanation on the bottom of each picture! I personally like this because I do not like to read essays on how to make anything! It also lists all the materials you'll need at the beginning of the book, and later lists what are the specific materials you will need for that chapter! ( perfect for people like me who cannot retain information for very long!) I enjoyed the full color pictures very much, and I am more than happy to pay more for this version! ( he has a b/w version for less money)
I am looking forward for the next book!?

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb how-to book! Jan. 27 2011
By B. Laue - Published on Amazon.com

This book tells you, step by step, how to create fantastic dragons, and then, how to paint them to a really nice level! I wanted to possibly build them for sale on e-Bay, but I soon realized that shipping them would be ridiculously high, as the finished sculptures will be quite large... Aside from that, the book is superb! Cheers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful! April 27 2011
By Journey Fish - Published on Amazon.com

This book is so well written and so well illustrated that I highly recommend it. What a fun book. I haven't yet made a dragon, had wanted to make one with my grandsons, but that will have to wait. I will likely simply make one to hang from my own ceiling very soon.

Dan Reeder's books on making things are wonderful, each one a delight.

When I get around to making a dragon, I will try to remember to update this review.

5.0 out of 5 stars dragonmakers handbook Aug. 11 2010

This book was a delight to find and the instructions are written as I imagine the author speaks. It is very clear and easy to follow with tongue in cheek humor. It is an easy book to follow with instructions and materials required listed, as you require them and the photos are clear and give the reader easy ways to make what may be conceived as a difficult object to begin.
