The Five Mile Press is delighted that the Ology phenomenon-which began in 2003 with the publication of the eccentric Dr. Ernest Drake's Dragnology- continues with more than 15 million Ology books sold worldwide and more than 1 million books sold in Australia.

The Ology brand is rapidly expanding through publishing, licensing, movies and multimedia. The range of Ology merchandise now includes games, figures, toys and calenders. Dragonology, Wizardology and Pirateology games for Nintendo DS and Wii are to be launched globally in early 2010. With Nintendo emerging as a market leader for family entertainment, the games will take the Ologies to new markets and the non-book reader, plus reinforce the coolness of the Ology brand. A Dragonology movie is also in the works.

Review: Beautifully crafted, Oceanology is a treasure to pass down to the next generation. Thoroughly enjoyable and insightful into the magical world of the deep.
