Was Bjorn of Bromme one of the greatest explorers of the viking Age, or was he just a simple-minded, lice-infestested Barbarian with a passion for beach volleyball? Could Soong Mei Ying really have discovered every Asiatic Dragon known to Serpentology, or was she just a 13th century teenager who wanted to travel and meet people? Did Dr. E.F. Liebermann perish, broken-hearted and alone, in the remote south-west corner of Tasmania, or did he triumph over incredible hardships eventually to confront his rival, handsome Cousin Kurt, on the ski slopes of Switzerland? The answers to these questions and more will not be found in the pages of this book - but a lot of Great Big Dragons will. Sumptuously illustrated by the inimitable Graeme Base, a.k.a. Rowland W. Greasebeam, B.Sc.
