really liked it
This series is absolutely one of the fantasy genre’s treasures! It’s wonderfully light-hearted and humorous; the author revels in puncturing any number of fairy-tale conventions. Princess Cimorene, for instance, isn’t kidnapped and enslaved by a dragon –she voluntarily becomes housekeeper for the Dragon King to escape an arranged marriage.

Practicing Roman Catholic Wrede [pronounced “Reedy”:] writes good clean fantasy (both serious and humorous), free of bad language, unwholesome sexual content, or gratuitous violence.

And also, it’s like one giant fairy tale of awesome. Also, there are
This is some of the best young adult fantasy out there, especially if you like some humor in your fantasy. In the first book, the main character gets fed up with her life as a princess. When she tries to learn to fence, she’s told it’s unladylike, so she has to stop. When she tries to coook, she’s told it’s unladylike, so she has to stop. So, we begin the story with the main character running away to find a dragon to live with. She does find one, and she spends much of the book making cherries j
