Cover: 'Handbook for Dragon Slayers'

Staff Review: "Handbook for Dragon Slayers" by Merrie Haskell


13-year-old Tilda is not your average fairytale princess. Born with a twisted foot, she knows that people in her kingdom don't respect her and she's bored with being a princess. Her boredom, however, comes to an abrupt halt when her evil cousin steals the throne. She is suddenly thrust into a once-in-a-lifetime adventure -- complete with magical horses -- to rid the kingdom of dragons. Unfortunately, she knows nothing about dragons and even less about herself. Will she be able to find the courage that she needs to confront dragons and also rescue her kingdom?  This wonderful fantasy will keep you engaged until the end.     

Audience: children, tweens | Genre: fiction, fantasy, dragons
