Amazon.com Review:
Cimorene, princess of Linderwall, is a classic tomboy heroine with classic tomboy strengths--all of which are perceived by those around her as defects: "As for the girl's disposition--well, when people were being polite, they said she was strong-minded. When they were angry or annoyed with her, they said she was as stubborn as a pig." Cimorene, tired of etiquette and embroidery, runs away from home and finds herself in a nest of dragons. Now, in Cimorene's world--a world cleverly built by author Patricia C. Wrede on the shifting sands of myriad fairy tales--princesses are forever being captured by dragons. The difference here is that Cimorene goes willingly. She would rather keep house for the dragon Kazul than be bored in her parents' castle. With her quick wit and her stubborn courage, Cimorene saves the mostly kind dragons from a wicked plot hatched by the local wizards, and worms her way into the hearts of young girls everywhere.

Reserved for PrincessRainbow as a wishlist tag.

Update 24th August:
A totally charming story, where not all princesses have to be airheads. Cimorene is intelligent, level headed, courageous and assertive, she does things that "really are not done", and of course she wins the day! A tale for all ages, and amusing as well.

4 September 2014: The book arrived today. Thank you very much for sending it to me.

19 October 2015: I finally read the little book and enjoyed it very much. It is very well written and the cover fits very well to the story. I especially liked Cimorene and her female dragon Kazul. It was a charming story that made me laugh. This is the 1st book of "The Enchanted Forest Chronicles" and I want to read the rest of the series.
