I am no longer a year old girl. I am a grown-ass woman, and I still love this book as much as I did the first time I read it. Share this book with your sisters, your daughters, your nieces. This is a wonderful book for a young girl, it sends so many positive messages. You do not have to fit into the mold. You can be brave, headstrong, smart, without being stubborn, without being mean. There is no romance. There is a Prince Charming who, frankly, bores the living crap out of our intrepid young Princess Cimorene.
You can be in charge of your own destiny. This book grew with me through my childhood, and it remains with me as an adult. Some books have made me cry. There is nothing so complex, so complicated about this little book; it just makes me happy. Summary: Princess Cimorene is a princess of the very pleasant kingdom of Linderwall. All in all, Linderwall was a very prosperous and pleasant place. Cimorene hated it. Her older sister are all lovely and ladylike, each more beautiful than the last.
Cimorene is not. Her hair is frizzy and brown. Magical lessons. And her fairy godmother is as useful as brains on a Kardashian. Cimorene puts up with it as best as she can, until the day her parents send her off to visit the very handsome, golden haired, blue-eyed, Ken doll of a Prince.
She takes the advice of a magical frog, packs some useful and practical things, and runs away from home. Unfortunately, or fortunately, as it may be, the audience that the frog sends her to seek happens to be dragons.
Very curious ones. Kazul is the awesome dragon, who agrees to take her on. Contrary to popular beliefs, not every dragon wants a princess. There are never enough to go around, and some of us prefer not to have to deal with the annoyances that come with them.
Instead of being princessy and spending her days embroidering and doing stupid shit like that, Cimorene now spends her days cleaning out the dragon treasure troves, cataloguing and polishing old dragon treasures some of them magical! Along the way, she has to deal with the constant stream of idiotic Knights and Princes who want to rescue her does anyone bother asking Cimorene if she wants to be rescued? There is magic. There is mystery. There is a potential threat to the dragons for whom Cimorene has come to care deeply.
She is a person of action, and she fills the book with her energy. The setting is magical, but it is not exceedingly detailed, just enough to build up the imagination.
The Main Character: Cimorene and her dragon are the stars of this book, and they make me love it. I recommended this book for young readers, and it is just so darned appropriate for an impressionable young woman. She is an awesome main character. She is book-smart, and she is not perfect. She is a librarian at heart, a researcher who relies on her skills in research and her thirst for knowledge rather than outright brilliance.
Cimorene is relatable and reliable, smart, witty, absolutely pragmatic and practical without ever becoming bitchy and annoying in the least. And however resourceful Cimorene is, she knows when to call for help when she needs it. Every young girl should have a copy of this book and this series.
Dealing with Dragons
Plot summary[ edit ] Princess Cimorene is frustrated by her life and persuades the castle staff to teach her fencing, magic, cooking, Latin, and other interesting subjects that are considered very "improper" for princesses to learn. The King and Queen take Cimorene on a state visit to a neighboring kingdom. Cimorene learns that they plan to arrange her marriage to an annoying prince named Therandil. Faced with the prospect, Cimorene runs away. She meets a group of dragons, and volunteers to become the "captive" princess of the dragon Kazul.
