I loved this entire series. Every little girl should read these books. Not exactly Secret Garden or Anne of Green Gables, but very cute, very funny and pokes its nose at the typical princess stories.

I adore this book, and the Enchanted Forest Chronicles in general. This is the first of the series which centers around the anti-princess Cimorene and what happens when she tries to distance herself from the stereotypical damsel. All of the characters are quite memorable, and the story itself is very clever and fun - every fairy tale cliche gets parodied in the series, so cameos are made by all the familiar archtypes from those stories. I HIGHLY recommend this.

The most awesome book!!!!!!!! Princess Cimorene is running away. She doesn't want to marry. And so how ends up living with a group of dragons. She likes it so much that when princes come to rescue her she refuses to leave. This is a wonderful story for any one who likes a good read.

fantastic book! Princess Cimorene is not your ordinary princess, only interested in which prince to marry. instead, she winds up as princess to the dragon Kazul and begins a new life.

Wonderful book with a great heroine. This is one princess that does not need a prince to survive. I loved it from beginning to end.

Very nice book, I loved it, couldn't put it down. Heroine is not the typical damsel in distress, but more like the person who tackles the issues and solves them.

This is a charming story about a princess who wants to learn about fighting, philosophy, politics and all manner of "non-princess" things. Who wants to learn dancing and embroidery anyway? When her father decides she should marry a prince that Cimorene considers a dunce she runs away. Of course, she meets a dragon - a female dragon named Kazul - who wants a princess. Cimorene finds challenge in her new role as a princess to a dragon. The down side is when a prince comes to try to rescue her. She doesn't want to be rescued. Discouraging knights and princes who want to rescue her and outwitting wizards becomes part of her new life. In addition, she begins to learn magic. The story unfolds with wicked wizards, a friendly witch, trouble and danger as Cimorene and Kazul form a bond unlike that any other dragon has with his/her princess. It's a delightful tale for young readers with a princess role model quite different from those found princes wish to rescue from dragons.
