Julie Tennis | 4 comments I barely remember this so might be remembering incorrectly. I believe the book is about a young girl who goes to vanquish a dragon and is able to do so without killing the beast, rather she befriends it or makes an effort to understand it and ends up ending the conflict.

I'm thinking this is pre-1980's, but could be pre-1990's.

Does this ring any bells?

Julie Tennis | 4 comments Hm... Jane and the Dragon may be it.

Ashley (ashinscribbleland) | 64 comments Dragon's Bait - villagers send her off to be sacrificed by the dragon because they believe she's a witch (she's not). She and the dragon kind of team up for revenge
Dragon's Keep - this one is probably too late, but really similar sounding

Julie, since you've moved this to solved, can we assume that Jane and the Dragon was the book you were looking for?

I'm not sure yet. I've ordered it from the library to see if it's the same story. But based on the description of the book online, it matches up with what I remember.

ok - let us know once you've confirmed that it's the right one and we can shelve it. Fingers crossed! :)
