it was ok

This medieval tale covers the classic prince charming story out to slay the dragon with the help of the princess. I felt like there was too much going on in this book due to the detail in the borders and that either the pictures alone should tell the story or the pictures should be toned down to accompany the text. Since I was consistently distracted, I did not feel that it would be a strong book to use with young readers. There is too much going on for a beginner to actually focus on the text. I also did not like how helpless the princess was because it is teaching students gender inequality. I think that this would be a good book to use to teach a typical fairy tale. However, I am sure I could find a more well suited book for the same lesson.
