I just finished Dealing With Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede. I’m so happy to say that I have a new fantasy book that I can recommend to the little people. I mean young patrons at the library, not actual little people. Anyway, Cimorene is a young princess who is not satisfied with her life at the palace. She is tired of classes in manners and embroidery and the refined things a princess needs to know. She would rather learn cooking and fencing and magic and economics. Running away and becoming the princess of a very powerful dragon, Kazul, suits her just fine. If only all those darn princes would quit trying to rescue her…
