Default Beardie Book Suggestion needed

My two daughters are getting Beardie soon. Whilst the youngest one has gathered a wealth of info from the internet, this forum and discussions at pet shops, I would like to get her a really good book for her upcoming birthday. She is 12, doesnt "do" long words but soaks up information like a sponge. The book is also likley to be read by her older sister. Lots of piccies would be great (they both love drawing animals) but the main thing is good common sense down to earth advice for the new Beardie Keeper.

I bought a book simply called "Bearded Dragons" by Philip Purser. Its in paperback and and cost £8.99 from local reptile shop. I found this to be very useful, with lots of infomation and tips on keeping your new dragon.

I quite like this one:

Bearded Dragon Manual (Herpetocultural Library): Amazon.co.uk: Philippe De Vosjoli, Robert Mailloux, Susan Donoghue: Books

The morphs section is well out of date and not applicable to the UK market (that's to be expected from a US book with the market moving as fast as it is), but the general care information is good. From what I remember there aren't too many long words in there, and everything is generally explained pretty well

I have this! It's battered and worn it's been passed on through our herp club for over 7 years now. It's great. Not too complicated. I always refer to it if need be

Funny enough these two books are part of a 3 book recommendation on Amazon. Think it might be sorted. Thanks

I would always recommend The Bearded Dragon Manual, it is very useful.
