Dealing with Dragons de Patricia C. Wrede (1990)

  1. 110
    Howl's Moving Castle de Diana Wynne Jones (infiniteletters)
  2. 101
    Ella Enchanted de Gail Carson Levine (jfoster_sf)
    jfoster_sf: This is another great fantasy that has a strong female character that refuses to conform to what everyone tells her is "proper". Ella Enchanted does have a romance in it (it IS a Cinderella retelling, after all) but its very innocent and is still appropriate for 10 and up readers.… (més)
  3. 60
    The Wee Free Men de Terry Pratchett (Nikkles)
  4. 50
    Dark Lord of Derkholm de Diana Wynne Jones (fyrefly98)
    fyrefly98: Both are send-up of fantasy conventions (and D-heavy titles!): Dealing with Dragons focuses more on fairy tales while Dark Lord of Derkholm deals more with high/quest fantasy.

    The Ordinary Princess de M. M. Kaye (infiniteletters)

    House of Many Ways de Diana Wynne Jones (f_ing_kangaroo, Tinker_Books)

    Damsel de Susan E. Connolly (Scorbet)
    Scorbet: Damsel is probably for a younger age group than Dealing with Dragons, but features a similar subversion of standard fantasy tropes.

"Well, I'm not a proper princess, then," Cimorene snapped. "I make cherries jubilee, and I volunteer for dragons, and I conjugate Latin verbs-or at least I would if anyone would let me. So there!"

A princess who refuses to be proper and runs away to live with dragons? Sign me up! Combine this with turning fairy tale tropes on their head and a dash of humor and you have Dealing with Dragons, the first book in the Enchanted Forest Chronicles by Patricia C. Wrede. I wish I'd discovered this series as a kid. It would easily be a childhood favorite.

I never knew I wanted to be Cimorene when I grew up. She doesn't let society's expectations of what a princess should be get in the way of living the life she wants. Organizing her dragon's treasure, cooking and fencing are much preferable to being a damsel in distress to be rescued by knights. In fact Cimorene has to keep turning the knights away so she can stay a dragon's princess. They are such a nuisance! Cimorene is courageous, witty, a creative problem solver and learns how to work as a team to accomplish her goals. It's a great message.

Plot wise, there is a mystery to solve. As a story aimed at a middle-grade audience it's not overly complex though Wrede manages to add a couple twists that keep things from being too predictable. There is plenty of action, the story is fast paced and plenty of sly humor to go around.

There is something magical about Dealing with Dragons. It's one of those books that as soon as I finished I couldn't wait to read it again. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series. ( )

This is still far and away my favorite children’s fantasy series and I still want to grow up to be a dragon’s princess/treasure organizer/rare books cataloger. ( )

This book sparked joy in me. Will definitely recommend to kids. ( )

From the author: "These books owe a lot to the Oz books and the “Fractured Fairy Tales” segment of the old “Rocky and Bullwinkle” cartoons, and they were great fun to write. Dealing with Dragons began as a short story, “The Improper Princess,” and was expanded to novel length at the insistence of Jane Yolen, my editor at Harcourt. It, and the subsequent two books, tell the story of Cimorene, a fairy-tale princess who finds her expected duties boring and therefore runs away to become the “captive” princess of a dragon."

Linderwall was a large kingdom, just east of the Mountains of Morning, where philosophers were highly respected and the number five was fashionable. The climate was unremarkable. The knights kept their armor brightly polished mainly for show -- it had been centuries since a dragon had come east. There were the usual periodic problems with royal children and uninvited fairy godmothers, but they were always the sort of thing that could be cleared up by finding the proper prince or princess to marry the unfortunate child a few years later. All in all, Linderwall was a very prosperous and pleasant place.
Cimorene hated it.
