Dealing with Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede

Clear rating

This book was simply delightful, with enchanting characters of different kinds and lots of good witty humor, hinting to many classic fairy tales, but with twisted meanings. Here's a little example:
“The rest of my classmates are already making names for themselves. George started killing dragons right away, and Art went straight home and pulled some sort of magic sword out of a rock. Even the ones nobody expected to amount to much have done something. All Jack wanted to do was go back to his mother’s farm and raise beans, and he ended up stealing a magic harp and killing a giant and all sorts of things. I’m the only one who hasn’t succeeded.”

I think this book can be even more enjoyable for adults than for kids, I totally recommend it.

carol. Agree! Always thought this series was fun.

Alina I was amazed how fun this was, Wrede has a wonderful sense of humor. I read some parts to my husband too and now he's asking me for the book :))
