Welcome to the first of my dragon posts and the first chance to enter the giveaway!
Before we dive into this, I have to tell you that the giveaway will be USA only. I’m sorry to all international readers. You are still welcome to take part in the games and stuff, though.
So! If you haven’t already figured it out, I love dragons. Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head (Kudos to the Captain Americas who understand that reference.)
Did you know that there are dragon stories all over the world? Seriously! ALL OVER THE WORLD. China, Europe, South America, the US, Greece, ancient Babylon… and what do you think good ol’ Nessie in Scotland’s Lake Ness is? And then there are lots of modern dragon stories that are cool. The Hobbit. How to Train Your Dragon, books and movies. Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke. Eragon (the first book, anyway) by Christopher Paolini. I’m sure you guys can name more.
I wanted a dragon when I was in my early teens (I still want one). But they aren’t easy to acquire, it seems. I love writing dragons, reading dragons, and seeing dragons.
So, when I went on vacation and saw this…
I was delighted beyond reason.
So here is where the giveaway comes in. I am giving away a book by Ken Ham. (Look him up.) For one of the entries, you must guess where I saw the literate beastie pictured above.
Other entries involve following this blog, following me and/or Ken Ham on Twitter, doing the tag (I don’t have it made up yet. It’ll be here on the 13th, hopefully.), and linking to this giveaway. (You have to click on the link to get to the giveaway.)
Have fun! And may the dragons favor you (because they may eat you if they don’t)!
So! What other dragon stories (modern or not) can you guys think of?
