What did you like about the book? A little dragon tells a story about the day his dragon kingdom was invaded by two dangerous creatures: princesses! The princesses (one white-skinned, one dark) charm the other dragons, but not the one telling the story. He doesn’t like the way they are changing the land by planting flowers and encouraging the wearing of ruffles. All his efforts to get rid of them fail, until finally he thinks to ask a knight to come rescue them. When that plan goes badly awry, the dragon is forced to ask the princesses for help. That’s when the princesses show that they can be as fierce as dragons, and a mutual friendship is finally forged.
Anything you didn’t like about it? No.
To whom would you recommend this book? Recommended for preschool to first grade girls.
Who should buy this book? Public libraries with a large demand for “princess” books.
Where would you shelve it? Shelve with general picture books.
Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? No.
