{Books} [BOKS]
There are 10 books scattered around the world, and they can be read for fun. I
didn't bother to list out all the areas here, as that would have resulted in
10 or so areas labeled "none" and taking up a big honking part of this guide.
The last section consists of books that were found in the game code and listed
by Dark52, on his website These books were not actually 
found in the game, however.

<---Dragon Shores--->
1. "And Along Came Ripto" In the room where the game starts.

After saving the Dragon families from Gnasty Gnorc's sinister spell, Spyro
thought he earned a little vacation. But there's no rest for the heroes, no
matter how small they are. Shattering Spyro's and his friend Sparx's dream of
rest and relaxation was Ripto, another little guy like our hero. But contrary
to Spyro, this dinosaur-riding trouble-maker despised his small stature, and he
took it out on the world to prove that his wrath was much bigger and scarier
than his modest size suggested. Frustrated, short temerpered and spiteful,
Ripto pulled off deception and trouble befitting a much larger creature. Poor
Spyro! He only wanted a vacation. Instead, he received a pain in the flames. It
all came out well in the end, as Spyro defeated him and his henchmen in a 
tumultuous battle!
2. "Legend of the Sea Dragon" In the Inn, on the right side.

Legend tells us that Dragon Realms was discovered by the Great Sea Dragon. She
swam here from the ancient homeland with her babies on her back. Tired from the
swim, she passed away on the shore, right where our fountain stands today. She
wore the fountain talisman around her neck, the magic from this talisman powers
the fountain's jets today.

3. "Spyro's First Calling" In the Inn, on the right side also.

In the beginning,life in the Dragon Worlds was peaceful, blissful, and utterly
free from care for five families of Dragons, including the smallest one of all,
Spyro. But some rotten souls - jealous, foul, downright unsavory characters - 
just can't stand to see others happy. Such was the case with Gnasty Gnorc, who
resented Spyro's pluck almost as much as he loathed catching sight of his own
ugly mug. And being a greed gnorc, Gnasty frequently scared himself silly as he
glimpsed his own reflection in the Dragon families' shiny jewels that he 
coveted and frequently gazed upon. Driven by his greed and downright meanness,
Gnasty devised a magic spell, a wicked, jealous awful one to end all Dragon 
happiness once and for all. From his foul perch in Gnasty's World, he froze all
the Dragons in crystal and changed their beautiful jewels into Gnorc soldiers.
Only Spyro, the smallest Dragon, escaped Gnasty's spell. And it was he who 
freed the frozen Dragons, rescued their stolen treasures, and taught Gnasty
Gnorc some manners once and for all.

4. "Surf Report" On the left side of the Inn. 

2 feet, winds out of the west at 5mph. Sorry dudes, surf is definitely not up.

5. "Financial Times" In the house to the right of Mr. Funderlic.

Market Just Keeps Going Up! An economic boom is underway in Dragon Realms, with
no end in sight. All technology stocks are rated "Buy." Analysts say, "This 
will go on forever."

6. "Two Dragons, One Love" In the house to the left of Mrs. Funderlic.

A thrilling romance from the author of "Wrap My Wings Around You," "Wings of
Desire," and "How Hot is My Breath?" comes this tale of a lonely housewife who
finds adventure and true love on a tiny island.

<---Dragon Village--->
7. "Engineering Quarterly" This is found in the house to the right on the 
   second story houses.

The Amazing Dragon Village Gates. The gate system in Dragon Village is a marvel
of engineering. The gates replaced the original system back in 1128. Comprised
of two composite sliding doors weighing 2.5 tons apiece. An underground system
of hydraulics operates the gates, powered by a series of failsafe breakers
spread throughout town.

8. "The Ink-Quirer" In the house to the left on the second story, on a table.

Armadillos Up to No Good! Reports trickle in that armadillos, who reside in far
west Dragon Realms, are really nasty creatures! According to our sources, they
eat bugs, dig holes deep in the ground, and generally smell. If you see one
snooping around nearby, please discourage them from returning.

9. "Legends of Dragonkind" Same as #8.

Legends tell of an ancient dragon race that fled a natural catastrophy in
Forgotten Worlds. Braving a perilous journey across the oceans, they found a 
new land, what we now call Dragon Realms. These pioneer dragons started 
rebuilding their civilization in the new world. They used their magic and 
advanced stonemasonry to build Dragon VIllage. Then the most senior dragons 
secluded themselves in the nearby hills and formed a Council of Elders. This
group has governed the dragon people for many thousands of years.

10. "Ode to Dragons" Above #8 and #9, on a bed.

It is widely acknowledged that Dragons are the perfect beings. As wizards, we
should strive to be more dragon-like in all our endeavours. Repeat this poem
each morning, noon, and night to place yourself on the right path.
Oh Great Dragon, allow me to breathe as you do, to grip the earth with strong
talons as you do, to beat the air with wings only you have, and to feel the
magic as only you can.

<---The World of Game Code---> (found in code, not in game)
11. "Dragon Daily News"

Home Prices Fall in Dragon Shores. Long-time residents of Dragon Shores are
upset that their home values are dropping. "We blame the increase of tourism,
dragons and other people alike. "We are petitioning the town council to halt
development of the area," complained homeowner R. Funderlic. Tourist hotels 
like "Dragon Arms Inn" have sprung up recently, changing the feel of the old
coastal community.

12. "Care of Baby Dragons"

Chapter One. When will an egg hatch? Since dragon eggs can sit around for years
before they decide to hatch, it is useful to determine when they are ready. To
do this, find a bare, flat, hard surface such as a wooden floor. Avoid surfaces
that are high off the ground, like tables. Place the egg on the surface and 
give it a good spin. If the egg stands up straight will it spins, it will not
hatch anytime soon. If it lies down and wobbles excessively, then it will most
likely hatch within the next 60 days.

13. "The Fall of Red"

In the year 1293, an Elder named Red, a powerful magician, had an argument with
Tomas, the 12th leader of the Council of Elders. Red believed that dark magic
could be harnassed for the greater good of dragonkind, while Tomas discouraged
any contact with dark magic. Red continued his experiments in secret. One day 
he summoned a creature from another dimension, but lost control of it. The 
monster rampaged around Dragonfly Dojo and smashed Tomas's house. The Elders 
joined together to send the monster away, but everyone knew Red was the 
culprit. Tomas sent Red away and told him to never return. Red left, cursing 
the other Elders.

14. "The Magic of Dragons" 

Magic is all around us. It swirls around in everything we can see or touch.
However, most people are unaware of it. Dragons and other magical creatures 
have an innate sense of magic. If taught how, they can harness its power. 
Sadly, many dragons have lost their magical sense, having grown apart from 
nature and preoccupied with social matters.

15. "Magical Runes"

It has long been known that magic can be shaped through the tracing or drawing
of runes. These figures, if drawn on a piece of parchment for instance, channel
the nearby magic energy and form that energy into magical manifestations. This
art requires the utmost concentration from the person tracing the rune, or the
magic effect could be dangerous.

16. "Basic Carpentry for Dragons"

The building of any structure that will be inhabited requires the utmost care,
lest the building collapse while the occupants are inside. The supporting 
wooden beams must be anchored to the ground, preferably with a gravel and 
mortar mixture, in a 3-foot deep hole.

17. "Minidragon Recipe"

1 Dragonfly of exceptional size
1 Dragon scale, different colors give varying results
1 Eyeball
13 Newt tails
and a pinch of garlic

18. "Laws of the Cheetah"

1. Obey your father.
2. Obey your mother.
3. If in doubt, see law number 1.

19. "Neema's Notebook"

Property of Neema. Private! Keep out!
Neema luvs Hunter!

20. To Zoe: Confidential!

Dear Zoe, I am writing to submit my resignation. I am sick of waiting around 
all day for someone to happen by, just so I can zap them with my wand and save
their "progress". In this day and age, who needs it!
Best wishes, Amp

21. "Poems"

Ugh ugh. Me want food.
Ugh ugh. Me want food.

22. "The Sorceress and the Eggs"

Every twelve years, the Dragon Kingdom hosts its most precious event, the Year
of the Dragon Festival. Dancing, feasting, and frolicking surrounded the 
delivery of 150 dazzling dragon eggs by the Fairies. And who was the first in 
line to see the magic eggs? Our brave but tired hero Spyro, of course. 
Festivals don't please everyone, though, no matter how many eggs they have. Far
away, on the opposite side of the world, hid a kingdom long since forgotten by
all dragonkind -- so forgotten, in fact, that even the legends about these 
"Forgotten Worlds" had been forgotten. Amidst this cold, barren - and did we 
mention forgotten? - wasteland sat the Sorceress, who, quite frankly, was fed 
up with being forgotten. From atop her forgotten throne, the Sorceress hatched
a deliciously evil plan - a plan to restore devious magic to her forgotten 
realm, a plan to conquer the dragons once and for all. All she needed was a 
little help from her army of horn-nosed rhynocs, her mysterious minion Bianca,
and, of course, those 150 magical dragon eggs. Stealing them right out from 
under the dragons' snouts was no problem, but fending off that go-getter purple
dragon Spyro would prove another matter indeed. Spyro vanquished the Sorceress,
and Bianca played a key role in defeating her mistress!

23. "Red's Dark Gems"

Red once was a good dragon not all that unlike Spyro. But his power got the 
better of his judgment, and he harmed those he was sworn to protect. In 
response, the Dragon Council banished Red. Driven mad with anger and his 
delusions of grandeur, Red vowed revenge against the Council and he meant it.
Enlisting Gnasty Gnorc and Ineptune, the nefarious queen of the Seven Seas, Red
riddled the Dragon Realm with Dark Gems. Potent little balls of wickedness, the
Dark Gems sucked light and goodness from the world, contorting Dragon Realms 
into a putrid, scary den just right for Red's domination. There was but one 
dragon who has the courage and fortitude to tackle Red and thwart his sinister
plan. And that was the mighty Spyro! Along with his friends, Hunter the 
Cheetah, Blink the Mole, and Sgt. Byrd the Penguin, Spyro, destroyed Red's 
plans. He even shut down Gnasty, who Red enlisted as an ally.

This is the FAQ section, where I answer your questions. Well, more like MY
sample questions for you, but, whatever.

Q. Why didn't the hole appear when I did _____?

A. The game sometimes lags and the hole won't appear for a few seconds. This is
   most obvious for the one near the last vendor.

Q. Why do I have 39 eggs?

A. You either gave one to Kaitlin, like you are supposed to, or you missed one.

Q. Why do I have 41/42/43/44/45/etc. eggs?

A. HAX. But seriously, some egg spots will spawn eggs over and over. This is a

Q. Why do I only have 10 books in my game?

A. The other 13 are found in the game's code, not in the game.
