    He doesn t seem very impressed, Cine commented in some amusement Why should he be Kazul said Well, you re a dragon, Cine answered, a little taken aback What difference does that make to a cat Before Harry Potter, there was Princess Cine, a dragon named Kazul, and the Enchanted Forest I am no longer a 11 year old girl I am a grown ass woman, and I still love this book as much as I did the first time I read it.Share this book with your sisters, your daughters, your nieces This is a wonderful book for a young girl, it sends so many positive messages You don t have to be what people want you to be You do not have to fit into the mold You can be brave, headstrong, smart, without being stubborn, without being mean There is no romance There is a Prince Charming who, frankly, bores the living crap out of our intrepid young Princess Cine You do not need a Prince Charming to make your own Happily Ever After You can be in charge of your own destiny.This book grew with me through my childhood, and it remains with me as an adult Some books I ve read have made me think Some books have made me cry There is nothing so complex, so complicated about this little book it just makes me happy...

    The scholarly princcesses, the very sensible dragons and irritating princes What else can a girl want Q There was a great deal of etiquette, from the proper way to curtsy before a visiting prince to how loudly it was permissible to scream when being carried off by a giant When she couldn t stand it any longer, she would go down to the castle armory and bully the armsmaster into giving her a fencing lesson.Q Well, I fence So it is too done by a princess Q Nothing interesting seems to be proper Q And that was the end of the magic lessons.The same thing happened over the Latin lessons from the court philosopher, the cooking lessons from the castle chef, the economics lessons from the court treasurer, and the juggling lessons from the court minstrel c Q Nowadays, all the princes are talking birds, or dogs, or hedgehogs c Q Nine times out of ten, talking is a way of avoiding doing Q Dragons are are fond of princesses, aren t they Very, said the dragon, and smiled.Q Being a dragon s princess is a perfectly respectable thing to do, so my parents couldn t complain.Q Well, I m not a proper princess, then, Cine 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 Q She had always been interested in what the knights and dragons were supposed to say than in memorizing the places where she was supposed to scream.Q The fencing lessons were just the beginning, Cine ...

    4.5 5 starsThis is my 4th time reading this Still good I did dock half a star down because second book is better than the first still, the whole series are amazing, even if I am well out of reading age for these books I enjoy them immensely After I got finished with the book, my first thought was why haven t they made a movie out of this yet And then I thought what if the casting is wrong, what if they don t follow the book, what if cgi is cheap Oh, the horrors So now I am actually happy that they haven t, no need to ruin THE BEST MIDDLE GRADE FANTASY EVER Can you tell that I am a fan To not make this review too long as I would like to review the whole series on my blog sometime I will just say that Cine is the best female character ever invented Girls, if you need a hero, look no further This book was first published in 1990 and since then there were many great female role models, but comparing to Cine, they all are trying a...

    If you think you know what a princess story is, think again.There s a magic to this series I haven t experienced since reading Harry Potter It s one of the most playful books I ve ever read, constantly making jokes out of well known tropes and famous fairy tales Plus it s a mystery in which the prime suspects are a dragon with bad wizard allergies and a prince made of stone The entire universe is as quirky as the suspects and although there s some plot holes and a lot of things that seem to happen for no reason, like J.K Rowling, Patricia C Wrede has the narrative authority to somehow pull it off.But best of all is the main character, Cine She s a princess that s had it with the pampered life and runs off to do some dirty work and be a servant to a dragon And although princes try to rescue her left and right, she doesn t want to be a damsel in distress She proves she s than that when sh...

    This is the first book of the Enchanted Forest Chronicles My daughter read them when she was at the point where reading changes from being work to being fun So it was one of the first serious books 100 pages and no pictures that she read on her own for pleasure First my wife read the series aloud to her Then she read them all to herself Then she read this book out loud to me.The story is told from the point of view of Princess Cine She s a curious, intelligent girl who hates the stereotyped role she s expected to play as a princess she has to learn to needlepoint and dance, but isn t allowed to cook or fence or learn magic Finally, she runs away and winds up getting captured by a dragon, Kazul Unlike other captured princesses, who lament their situation and wait to be rescued by young knights they can then marry, Cine befriends her dragon and refuses to be rescued The plot thickens when some oily wizards show upThe character of Cine is engaging She is spunky and has a sarcastic wit that makes my daughter laugh I liked her almost from page one and was quickly sucked into the story The plot has some interesting twists, but there is never a sense of real peril From the beginning it s pretty clear who s good and who s bad, and that ...

    I would place this book somewhere between The Ordinary Princess and the Harry Potter series in terms of complexity of plot, age appropriateness and the amount of fun I had reading it I really enjoyed reading this book and likely would have given it 5 stars if I had read it at a younger age say at the age of 8 years or so As it is, after Harry Potter and Lord of the ...

    A princess who does not want to be captured by dragons and rescued by princes.Instead she works for a dragon and tells the would be rescuing princes to go away All the etiquette a young princess needs to know.The King and Queen did the best they could They hired the most superior tutors and governesses to teach Cine all the things a princess ought to know dancing, embroidery, drawing, and etiquette There was a great deal of etiquette, from the proper way to curtsy before a visiting prince to how loudly it was permissible to scream when being carried off by a giant The bleak employment prospects of a princess who does not want to marry an empty headed prince Her skills are The frog looked at her disapprovingly Can t you do anything I can curtsy, Cine said disgustedly I know seventeen different country dances, nine ways to agree with an ambassador from Cathay without actually promising him anything, and one hundred and forty three embroidery stitches And I can make cherries jubilee Cherries jubilee aske...

    I picked up this book after seeing it featured in A Mighty Girl s excellent list of kick ass Princess books, and thought it might make a good Christmas gift for a fantasy loving little sister Of course I had to read it first, the way you have to taste the cookie dough, to make sure it s just right And of course, Little Sister caught me at it What s that A book I m reading She executes a perfect pre teen exasperated sigh and eye roll I KNOW it s a book What s it about I decide to test the waters It s about a princess who doesn t like being a princess all she does is sit around wearing crowns and embroidering, and she thinks it s boring So she runs away to live with a dragon She has to trick the knights and princes who try to come rescue her, because they don t realize she doesn t need to be rescued Her eyes light up Cool She pronounces it like the kids do these days, as if it were spelled kewl And after finishing the book, I have to agree with that assessment This is a snappy, fast paced adventure, packed full of both action and wit, and humorously subverts fairy tale tropes at every turn The writing is crisp and clear, the story well plotted and not too predictable I guessed certain elements were going to be important later, but not exactly how they would come into play The heroine is an absolute delight a strong minded, sensible person who Gets Things Done and doesn t give a fig whether it...

    This is my happy book I read it when I was in middle school and I love it because its not your average fairy tale Yes you have princess s and prince s and yes you have dragons and wizards and magic but it s not exactly like the common tale of where the prince slays the dragon with the wizard to help him act clever to save the damsel in distress and or princess No no it s of the princess becomes friends with a dragon and when a prince comes and saves he...
