Carlie | 6 comments Please help! I'm looking for a humorous young adult fantasy book. The main character might have been a princess. She was escaping on an uncontrollable flying carpet. They were trying to work out how to control the flying carpet, he said "oh my flipping heck" and it turned out that was one of the code words to control it. I think this would have been published in the 90's.

The Enchanted Forest Chronicles: Dealing with Dragons / Searching for Dragons / Calling on Dragons / Talking to Dragons possibly? I know that at one point in one of the books (either 1 or 2) the Princess had to deal with a flying carpet that was malfunctioning.

I have read very few books with flying carpets and I remember the guy learning to control the carpet. Of course who/what the carpet truly is is funny. Must read the prequel to the story even with the main characters changing in this.

It was book 2... Searching for Dragons (Enchanted Forest Chronicles, #2) by Patricia C. Wrede . SUCH a cute series! I just read it... There wasn't an "oh my flipping heck" line, but the guy she was on the carpet with DID say "stop it!" (or similar) and it froze the carpet midair... Cute cute cute...

Carlie | 6 comments Thanks for all of your suggestions guys!
None of those books are ringing a bell at the moment, but I will head off to the library tomorrow to investigate further - I might have to borrow them all, as they all sound interesting!
