When a princess who behaves like a dragon meets a dragon who behaves like a princess, who knows what will happen!
The Princess and the Dragon is beautifully illustrated with big, funny pictures. The book helps you realise that people are not always like you imagine them to be. The Princess was quite naughty and not very gentle but she met a dragon who was very gentle and liked ballet! So they change roles with hilarious results.—Betty Bookmark - Tracey
There’s not a simpering princess or fire-breathing dragon to be seen anywhere in The Princess and the Dragon. On the contrary, the princess has a ‘Don’t touch me! I’m perfect’ attitude that leaves everyone around her in tears or shock. Nobody can please her ladyship and she spends the whole time devilish tricks upon unsuspecting old knights and generally acting as a poor role model for all the children in the kingdom. Meanwhile, in the dragon’s lair there lives a piano playing, perfectly mannered, mythical monster who is so cultured that when he/she swaps lives with the princess nobody in the kingdom notices, or so they say.—Nursery Equipment (Nursery World)
