Dealing With Dragons by Patricia Wrede
This is the first in the Enchanted Forest Chronicles. This is a fairytale type book, but it is not a typical fairytale. I thought it was very funny and I especially enjoyed the chapter titles. I thought the situations and problems were very clever and entertaining. This is a great story for anyone who enjoys a good story as well as a laugh. In this story, Cimorene is not a typical princess. So, she runs away to live with dragons. When she uncovers a plot of the wizards to gain power, she has to use her quick wit and her own special way of dealing with wizards to save the day.
