Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful Read In this first book of the series Enchanted Forest Chronicles Princess Cimorene is not your normal everyday kind of princess as she is a smart headstrong tomboy. She runs away and lives with a dragon and finds the kind of family she has been looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME READ!!!! This book is great for all ages! I've read it for the first time when i was 9 and i couldn't put it down. i would even bring it with me to the super market! It's not a hard read. Every chapter is packed with mystery, magic, action and humor. Even if some dragons are not mentioned by name, you can tell who it is by the character he/she plays. The plot envolves a kingdom of dragons, a rebelious princess, an organization of evil wizards and a boulder.Patricia C Wrede has done a remarqable job at giving each person their own character that you feel as if you've known them for years. At the end, you'll want to get the other books to find out what happens next. You will never regret this fun and exciting book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Book On The Run! I thought that Dealing with Dragons(and the rest of the series) is and amazingly awesome book! Cimerone (the main character) Is such a fascinating person I couldn't put the book down! The story had such description in it that I could swear that the Mountains of Morning and the surrounding lands are almost real!All in all, Dealing with Dragons is an amazing and fascinatiing book that I would (and will) recommand to anyone!
