Another book that I’ve had sitting on the shelves for what feels like forever, I can’t really remember why I got it but I’m pretty sure it was at the recommendation of someone as a ‘book you need to read’.

Of course they were right, short and sharp, this book had me laughing a lot, especially the end (no spoilers) where I barked out loud. Takes a dragon and princess story and turns it on its head.

The story of Princes Elizabeth as she tracks down Prince Ronald who has been abducted by the fierce, fire-breathing dragon.

With many obstacles to overcome and dressed only in a paper bag, Elizabeth shows a great deal of cunning and intelligence.

The ending was totally unexpected but excellent.

A brilliant read, supported with hilarious illustrations.
