Take one bored princess. Make her the seventh daughter in a very proper royal family. Have her run away.

Add one powerful, fascinating, dangerous dragon.

Princess Cimerone has never met anyone (or anything) like the dragon Kazul. But then, she's never met a witch, a jinn, a death-dealing talking bird or a stone prince either.

Princess Cimerone ran away to find some excitement.

She's found plenty.

    " One of my favorite stories of all time! A wonderful heroine, an interesting plot, and it still makes me laugh, even after reading it so many times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brianna Leesch | 2/8/2014

    " One of the first heroine books I read when I was younger and still one that makes me smile. Full of witty dialog and memorable characters, this series is amazing. "

    " heartwarming story,unique characters(especially Morwen),giggling all the time,good ending,what else do i want from this book?haha,I have a great time just to finish this book...Love it very much... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carly | 1/31/2014

    " Cimorene is a princess of Linderwall, a middle-sized, middle-tier, very ordinary kingdom, but she's always wanted to break the boundaries, continually sneaking out to learn all sorts of unprincessy skills from magic to fencing to cooking--at least until her parents catch her. About to be married off to the very handsome, very nice, but very dull Prince Therandil, Cimorene decides that she'd rather be eaten by a dragon. Instead, she ends up as the dragon's cook. Hilarity ensues, from Cimorene refusing to be rescued from the dragon by the well-meaning knights who come to her door, meeting with a princess who can't manage to turn straw into gold, and to tons of other fractured fairy tales. Tons of fun, and a refreshing change from the romance that seems to invade all fantasy written by female authors. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mimi | 1/28/2014

    " I really enjoyed this entire series, and I think that it is perfectly written for its target age group (perhaps 8 to 14 year olds). I liked Cimorene's no-nonsense attitude and her way of attacking and solving problems. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Manjoney | 1/26/2014

    " This is one of those books I read when I was younger, and yet keep going back to read and reread the entire series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 TheLibraryOfSarah | 1/21/2014

    " I know this is meant for younger readers, but I absolutely love this series! It's just so carefree and funny, and the characters are all so unique, witty, and sarcastic. This is my favorite of the 4 in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Louise | 1/15/2014

    " My favourit book as a kid (though ome might say i'm still a kid...)! I think I've worn out my copy... Though i had absolutely no idea that it was a number one in a series of books! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lolene | 12/17/2013

    " I love this whole series. I think I will reread it now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fey | 12/10/2013

    " I read this books ages ago and had very fond memories of it. Would definitely recommend. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon | 12/8/2013

    " Some of my favorite kids books, I recommend these to my students every year! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denise | 12/3/2013

    " I loved this book when I first read it as a teenager. Now, as a 32 year old mother, I keep reading it again and again. It is cute and funny. Read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma P | 12/3/2013

    " Very good for dragon lovers reading habits. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca Schwarz | 12/3/2013

    " Read to Amelia the first in yet another series. Amelia like the princess, who was a tomboy and not at all interested in the usual princess-y things but we both agreed it took a long time to get to the fireworks factory. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 11/30/2013

    " Great and cute book! I read the series when I was in elementary school, and love it now as an adult. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer S | 11/6/2013

    " Cimorene is not the typical princess. She runs away from all her nice surroundings and privelage to go take care of a dragon and join their world. She is good at what she does and is a great help. This is a very sweet type of book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rememberme803 | 9/29/2013

    " Re-read this book during a visit-oldschool-favorites phase. A fun, enjoyable YA book =) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 7/7/2013

    " One of those rare, great children's books for intermediate readers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lscrenshaw | 1/8/2013

    " Sweet and funny classic... My mom used to read this series to us when we were kids. ^_^ Still one of our favorites. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anie | 11/26/2012

    " Another favorite, this one from high school. A spunky princess runs away to go live with dragons, coupled with humorous writing that makes excellent fun of fairy-tale cliches. How could it be anything but down my alley? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie Monson | 11/25/2012

    " Interesting idea, I just got a little bored with it. I may or may not read the next one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teawench | 3/2/2012

    " It was a fun, fast read. Pretty much non-stop action throughout the whole thing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trisha | 12/12/2011

    " I read this book in middle school and really enjoyed it. There is a princess who doesn't want to be saved by a prince and makes a life of her own with these dragons included. I remember being fairly engrossed in it, and only book with some feminist ideals makes me happy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larissa | 6/16/2011

    " I wasn't so sure about this book... then I got 100 pages in and realized how invested I was. I love this. I can't wait to read the rest of the series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa G | 5/20/2011

    " I read this with my daughter. It's a cute book. We'll read the rest of the series in the future but aren't rushing to finish it now. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 5/15/2011

    " Great, fun, kids' or YA fantasy book - dragons, magic, enchanted forests - with a great female main character who doesn't care about princes. Exactly what I felt like reading this weekend. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meredith | 5/6/2011

    " Seriously, why did I not know about this book when I was a kid? I would have loved it so much! Cimorene is a great character, and I'm excited to read the other books in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joni | 5/3/2011

    " This was a cute quick read! Really enjoyed it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sonya | 5/1/2011

    " Princess Cimorene started strong in the tomboy, strong, independent, and outspoken role. I was very excited about Dealing with Dragons. Then I read the subsequent books in the series. They were okay, but disappointing in comparison. I would have been happier had I stopped at the end of this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacey | 4/18/2011

    " Book Club pick (April 20100). Thought it was a cute, easy, fun read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shannon | 4/15/2011

    " This book was given to me by a friend and is quite possibly the cutest thing ever. Little girls everywhere should read this. Adorable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marisa | 4/11/2011

    " Where was this book when I actually was a "young adult?" Fortunately, it's a fun read as an adult, too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maia | 3/29/2011

    " This is the first in a fun, humorous fantasy series for children. It's a nice take on classic fairy tales, though the addition of dragon politics and a few clever inventions of Wrede's own add a flavor much better than the typical fairy tale. Enjoyable and lighthearted. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Woo | 3/29/2011

    " What an unusual take on fairytales! A princess who doesn't want to be rescued by a prince, who'd rather spend her time with dragons, etc, etc. Surprising, lighthearted read; I enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 3/24/2011

    " I know this is meant for younger readers, but I absolutely love this series! It's just so carefree and funny, and the characters are all so unique, witty, and sarcastic. This is my favorite of the 4 in the series. "
