This book is hilarious! A princess that turns into a dragon if she gets angry. She goes on an adventure to solve her issue on getting mad. Will she find whats she looking for???

On the adventure she has to deal with trolls and monsters. They meet with a witch that lives in a cave that's ice cold. She also meets with a dragon... a guy dragon. His parents were kidnapped by the witch that is now giving a shelter to the Dragon Princess.

WOW! What will happen next???

This is the continuation of The Frog Princess series although Eadric and Emma only have small roles in this story.

This story focuses on their daughter, Milly, who is half dragon and when she is angry, the dragon side of her comes out -- literally. It is also the story of her cousin, Francis who is the son of Haywood and Grassina and Zoe - the daughter of Lil and Garek, the Prince of the Vampires.

I enjoyed this story as Milly went to visit the Blue Witch to find out if there is a way she can cont

I was actually writing a story called Return of the Dragon Princess but I found out there was already a book called The Dragon Princess so I seeked that book out while I was in America. You wouldn't believe how impressed I was with it! I loved it to bits and I kept on reading the book (especially Chapter 14 onwards) because it was so good. I liked the plot and the romance in there, I already told my mum that I want the next book desperately and that I will suicide if I don't get it. (I didn't me ...more
This was not as strong as the original series. Perhaps because this is the first in the new series about Emma and Eadric's daughter it spent too much time weakly establishing characters and not providing a very good quest/journey/task the the previous books did. I will definitely read the next one because I like the secondary characters very much. I would have liked a little more involvement of Emma and Eadric since those are the characters that kept me reading.

I loved this one!! It was so cool to see the new generation, and to see the kids of all my favorite characters in the series ... I love Millie, she's awesome. I think it's so cool how Emma named her after her old friend Millie ... I thought the romance in this one was really sweet and unique. Once Upon a Curse and The Salamander Spell are still my favorites, but this is my third-favorite! :D

I can't even read this book without cringing.
Sure, like other ED Baker books, the writing is good and the plot is nicely adventurous.
But the characters. Ugh. The characters.
I don't know how an author that makes great characters like Annie, Liam, Emma etc can make such a ugly character. You know who. The spoiled, bitchy, egoistical, only-care-about-handsome-prince Princess.
On one side I kind of amazed at how easily Baker switch between writing good characters then the ugly character. On the other

This book in The Tales Of The Frog Princess book series is one of the best ones written (apart from the first two), in my opinion (and definitely a huge improvement over the previous one). I'm not at all sure what the author's intention was (in terms of literary imagery) in making Millie unable to control her "dragon-side" vs controlling her "human-side". Since the "dragon" aspects of her tended to show up only when she was seriously stressed and/or angry about a topic, perhaps "dragons" and/or ...more
The Dragon Princess is a story about a girl named Millie trying to control her emotions. I enjoyed the adventure she ends up on and her unique friends. The story was a little slow in some parts and a very sensitive reader might be put off by some of the challenges Millie and her friends try to overcome. Overall the story is appropriate for older elementary school readers and older. I was annoyed that Millie's biggest complaint about her problem was that it interferes with her effort to find some ...more

Baker's done it again. I really enjoyed this book even though it wasn't as good as the first 4 books :)

The theme of this book is that even what seems like a horrible trait can have some good in it, and to not judge a book by its cover. I thought it was really cool that the characters in this book were the children of the characters in the past ones. I didn't like the characters quite as much, though. They made the past characters seem old, which I didn't like. It was a great plot, but I didn't love the way the characters turned out. Still, I really enjoyed the reading about the next generation an ...more
This installment of The Tales of the Frog Princess continues the story of Emma and Eadric fifteen years after we last saw them. This time, the unconventional heroine is their daughter, Millie. At 15, is a typical teen, she loves hanging out with her friends and believing her parents don't understand her. She is desperate to find a husband but keeps scaring off her suitors due to the unfortunate tendency to turn into a dragon whenever she loses her temper! When Millie does the unthinkable and sho ...more

I liked the quest Millie and her friends went on - but the editing needed some work. Characters often did or said strange thing with no further explanations. For example, why does Audun's grandmother not seem to like her? I don't know. Never comes up again. These loose threads seem abundant and drove me crazy.

Also, a village that sacrificed a daughter a week deserved more that just being another adventure. No thanks.

I think so far of the Frog Princess series this is my least favorite book. It jumps around a lot and doesn't explain things very well. I found myself losing interest quickly, and the only raeson I finished was because I hate leaving a book half done- which is exactly how this book feels to me. It's not finished. I am sure there is going to be another one- because nothing was really resolved. I think she should have waited and just released it all as one big book.

I felt that solutions came too ea

Not as much fun as the Frog Princess, but this continuation of the series, focusing on the troubles of Millie, Emma and Eadric's daughter, is still very enjoyable. Fans of the series will enjoy, as will many new ones.

As a result of Emma spending so much time as a dragon, Millie is born with the ability to become a dragon as well. Only she cannot control the change. Whenever she gets very angry she switches, and only once she has calmed down again can she change back into her human form. This of

The Dragon Princess was another fun addition to the Frog Princess series. I enjoyed it, although I did wish it would have spent more time on Millie learning to control her transformations. That seemed to come together a little too fast. Overall, though, it was a fun, light read.

It was kind of fun being back with Eadric and Emma, though they are a lot different now. Millie seemed really spoiled at first but she grew on me. Fun characters, fun ties to the previous books, fun adventure. Yep.

i thought this book had some really funny parts but also some serious parts. it was not the best book i ever read but it was still it was a good book. i can not what to see what Millie and the other dragon is going to do.
This book picks up after book 4 (not back in time like some of the others) and the main focus of this one is Millie. Millie is the daughter of Emma and Eadric, and she has some magic in her too. Unfortunately, hers only comes out when she's angry. When she's upset or angry she turns into a dragon. She loves being a dragon, but she doesn't like the fact that she can't control it. She seeks out the advice of a witch after she has an outburst at her own birthday party. She is told to seek out the B ...more

I admired the first book in this series, but I find this one dull as dishwater and confusing. My seven-year-old seems okay with it, though.
This still enjoy this series although this jump to the next generation--Emma and Eadric's daughter Millie, is a little abrupt and the characters not quite as satisfying. I'm hoping that we're not going to be retelling the same story with a new set of players--the first few entries in the series were so fresh and fun! Katherine Kellgren is one of my favorite narrators but I had to say that in this volume she was not successful at differentiating the voices of Millie and Zoe and I thought that Ald ...more

E' stato molto bello... lo devo ammettere, molto simile al primo a dire il vero. Non dò 5 stelle perchè non mi è piaciuto un particolare nel finale. Per il resto è stato bello.

A neat adventure; felt almost like an H.C. Andersen story. Princesses, knights, dragons, magic, what more could a middle school reader want?!

Oh dear god. This cd finally ended. The only reason why it got a 3 is because the younger set *loved* it. Some children's books should be read by adults. Some should not. But. E.D. Baker has captured the target audience with this series.

Milly is a princess who, when angry, becomes a dragon. Can she control it? Only with help. Thus she begins an adventure with her cousin, best friend (who also can turn into a bat) and a 2 headed ogre as they search for wisdom in the snowy North.
