In a land where everything
is supposed to be done in a proper fashion, Princess Cimorene didn't fit
in. She hated embroidering and learning the different ways of screaming
for being captured by different monsters. But, most of all she didn't like
Prince Therandil. Instead of marrying him she runs away, and gives herself
to dragons. When wizards get involved though things become very serious.
If you want to find out what happens to Princess Cimorene read this book.

I know many of you loved the
Harry Potter books and are having a hard time waiting for the next book
in the series. While waiting, why don't you try "Dealing with Dragons"?
This book is similar to the Harry Potter books because it is also a fantasy
story, and it's very funny. This is the story of Princess Cimorene of Linderwall.
Unfortunately for her, Princess Cimorene is not a typical princess and
soon becomes bored with the only activities she is allowed to do: learn
embroidery and drawing, memorize etiquette rules, and practice dancing.
Listen as I read a little to you about her: (Here I read pp. 1-3,
which introduce this "princess with attitude" and show the book's humor.)
As you can tell, Cimorene just doesn't fit in, and she finally runs away
and becomes a dragon's princess near the Enchanted Forest. She has
lots of adventures, but the most exciting one is when she discovers a plot
hatched by the wizards to trick the dragons. Read "Dealing with Dragons"
and see how Cimorene schemes with her friends to save the dragon kingdom.
