Publisher's Summary

Take one bored princess. Make her the seventh daughter in a very proper royal family. Have her run away.

Add one powerful, fascinating, dangerous dragon.

Princess Cimerone has never met anyone (or anything) like the dragon Kazul. But then, she's never met a witch, a jinn, a death-dealing talking bird or a stone prince either.

Princess Cimerone ran away to find some excitement.

She's found plenty.

What the Critics Say

"A decidedly diverting novel with plenty of action and many slightly skewed fairy-tale conventions that add to the laugh-out-loud pleasure." (Booklist)
"A wonderful listen for the entire family." (AudioFile)

    I mostly enjoy Fantasy, with a sprinkling of sci-fi and mystery.

    "The Beginning of an excellent Series."

    This is the beginning of an excellent series and it makes an outstanding first impression. It is well told, well performed classic that can appeal to both children and adults. I won't give away any details, but this is definitely a must have book.

    "fantastic fantasy"

    I first found this series when I was in High school, and loved the twist on the fairy tales I heard when I was a child. an excellent story for people of all ages, I highly recommend it. I thought this recording was pretty good for an audio book. the sample covers about 1 1/2 chapters so i would advise listening to it before deciding to buy. good luck and happy listening!

    "My seven year old daughter LOVED this book"

    In her own words:

    I think readers of all ages, anyone who likes fantasy, would like this book about a princess who refuses to be proper. Princess Cimorene offers to be a dragon's princess! I think it is a great start to the series of four books, and I hope the others come out on audio tape soon!

    "My favorite audiobook of all time"
    What did you love best about Dealing with Dragons?

    The cast is amazing and the story is wonderful.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dealing with Dragons?

    The main character is a strong-willed, smart, brave princess determined to do good in the world.


    Have you listened to any of Words Take Wing Repertory Company of Syracuse and NY ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. I wish I knew of more performances by this cast. They do so well.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I read this as a young girl. This book was one of the first books that really got me excited about reading and made me want to read other fantasy stories. I cannot recommend this book enough, especially for young readers. It is sweet, adorable, and a great story.

    "Endlessly Charming"

    the characters were a lot of fun and it was a very pleasant listen. The dragon voices especially Kazuuls took some getting used to but they definitely helped me visualize the characters.
