This is a childhood favourite that was desperately in need of a reread. Although I remembered loving it as a child, I couldn't remember much besides the bare bones of the plot and that Cimorene was the coolest princess of all time. Having reread the book, I can confirm that Cimorene remains the coolest princess of all time. Wrede writes a subversive, funny fantasy romp that turns fairy tale tropes on their head in brilliant ways sure to delight any little girl sick of reading about the princess being saved. A princess who saves herself with intelligence, humour, and not a little bit of elbow grease is still something missing from so much fantasy. I'm looking forward to rereading the rest of the series and reacquainting myself with one of my childhood hero(ine)s.
