Amelia's Book Room: Dealing With Dragons

Cimorene, a princess of the Kingdom of Linderwall, isn't like her sisters. People are constantly complaining that she isn't a "proper" princess; she thinks embroidery, dancing, and screaming lessons (you know, for when she gets carried off by a dragon) are terribly boring. She prefers exciting things like magic, cooking, and fencing. So, when Cimorene learns that her parents plan to marry her off to an air-headed prince, she runs away.

In the Mountains of Morning, she comes upon a group of quirky dragons. She volunteers to be the "captive princess" of Kazul, a female dragon in need of someone to cook and clean for her. Cimorene is content with her new position, despite all the knights and princes attempting to rescue her. But it doesn't stay peaceful for long; there's something fishy going on with the wizard Zemenar and the Caves of Fire and Night.

Dealing With Dragons is a classic, fun book, the first of the Enchanted Forest quartet. I read these when I was around 7, and I appreciate them even more now. Patricia C. Wrede continues the series with Searching For Dragons, Calling On Dragons, and lastly, Talking To Dragons, all centering around Cimorene and her friends.

That's all for this week; don't forget to leave me a comment and join the Dekoposh Book Club!
