Real Unreal Creatures

There are questions you field as a librarian that seem to have an obvious answer. Such as (real question) do you have a book with photographs of unicorns? The obvious answer being no. Then some entrepreneur comes along, glues a plastic horn to the forehead of a lovely white horse and takes misty photos of said horse gamboling about in the green. What to do, what to do. Fortunately the dragon question is easier to answer. No. But we do have several nonfiction books about dragons if you are interested in the legends. The books might even have pictures. But not photos. I don't think gluing wings on a lizard will do the trick.

By the way, the unicorn book was Unicorns I Have Known by Robert Vavra. Out of print, we don't own it. Back to the obvious answer.
