Cine is everything a princess is not supposed to be headstrong tomboyish sma The scholarly princcesses the very sensible dragons and irritating princes What else can a girl wantThere was a great deal of etiuette from the proper way to curtsy before a visiting prince to how loudly it was permissible to scream when being carried off by a giant When she couldn t stand it any longer she would go down to the castle armory and bully the armsmaster into giving her a fencing lessonWell I fence So it is too done by a princessNothing interesting seems to be proper And that was the end of the magic lessonsThe same thing happened over the Latin lessons from the court philosopher the cooking lessons from the castle chef the economics lessons from the court treasurer and the juggling lessons from the court minstrel cNowadays all the princes are talking birds or dogs or hedgehogs cNine times out of ten talking is a way of avoiding doing Dragons are are fond of princesses aren t theyVery said the dragon and smiledBeing a dragon s princess is a perfectly respectable thing to do so my parents couldn t complainWell I m not a proper princess then Cine snapped I make cherries jubilee and I volunteer for dragons and I conjugate Latin verbs or at least I would if anyone would let me So thereShe had always been interested in what the knights and dragons were supposed to say than in memorizing the places where she was supposed to screamThe fencing lessons were just the beginning Cine assured himSo you see why I m perfectly happy being a dragon s princessBut what does a dragon want with a crepe panThere were two knights the following day and four the day after thatOn the fourth day there was only one but he was exceptionally stubbornAren t you a little slow she asked irritably There ve been eight knights here before youEight the prince said frowning I thought by now there d have been at least twelve Perhaps I d better come back laterI didn t come here to argue I came to meet the person who keeps borrowing my crepe pan cI was going to say that it isn t wise to run away from your dragon I believe it s done all the time cit was best to be polite to anyone as large and toothy as a dragon even if he wasn t being at all polite to her a flood a few years later Some hero or other shoved a giant into a lake to drown him The silly clunch didn t realize that if he put something that big into a lake the water would have to go somewhere It s not that easy to get into the Enchanted Forest she explainedAt least not if you re trying to get in Princes and youngest sons and particularly clever tailors stumble into it by accident all the time cVery few things are willing to mess with a dragon even in the dark cWell you re a dragon What difference does that make to a cat cWill wonders never cease For once a human with sense is getting the forfeit Yes you can take someone with you as long as you re touching him Same for objects if you can carry it you can take it with you You get one trip per feather That s all cShe pored over the book all evening and Cine found it fascinating to watch the dragon delicately turning pages with her claws cYou Dragons Us That looks interesting Can I help Maybe opening jars would make him forget about You Dragons Us for a while cDo you suppose he means it Why would he keep bellowing it at us if he didn t mean it cWhat he is matters not It is enough that thou and he shall dieEnough for whom cI never thought of thatWell start thinking now But what do I do if someone comes inDuck into the banuet area And if someone comes in there too curl up in the corner and pretend you re a rock cIn her experience someone in a good mood did not throw things at visitors c

Family and excitement she's been looking forCover illustrator Peter de Sèv I would place this book somewhere between The Ordinary Princess and the Harry Potter series in terms of complexity of plot age appropriateness and the amount of fun I had reading it I really enjoyed reading this book and likely would have given it 5 stars if I had read it at a younger age say at the age of 8 years or so As it is after Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings it s hard to give this book 5 stars Having said that this is a very interesting story of a Princess who detests traditional princessy stuff and decides to volunteer to workcookclean for a dragon Throw in the reuisite witches and wizards and an underlying conspiracy and you end up with this very enjoyable book A great present for young girls and boysAugust 2019 Just reread it I was too stingy back in 2008 when I gave it 4 stars It certainly deserves 5 stars I think so I m changing my previous rating the comparison to Harry Potter isn t really fair given the length of HP
