This is quite possibly my all time favorite book and it is, without a doubt, the book I have read the most often over the most number of years. I have given it to friends to read, I have read it out loud to two different people, I have even had my book club read it. Did I mention I love it?
Reasons that you will love Dealing With Dragons:
1- Chapter titles – For instance chapter one is titled: In Which Cimorene Refuses to Be Proper and Has a Conversation with a Frog.
2-Cimorene (the princess and heroine of the story) often refuses to be proper.
3-Dragons uses princess to cook and clean for them.
4- A sign above a door that reads, “NONE OF THIS NONSENSE, PLEASE.”
5- Other princesses are just as dull and ditsy as you could hope they would be.
6- King of Dragons is just a title, nothing to do with gender.
7-Dragons like Cherries Jubilee.
8- Princes also have to follow proper protocol.
9-A bucket of water won’t melt a clean witch.
10- Cimorene’s happily ever after involves being interested and busy and has nothing to do with a protocol following prince!
Would I recommend it? Yes! Technically it’s a young adult book, please ignore that and read it anyway.
