Marvelous Middle Grade Monday
I love finding new-to-me authors who have multiple book series. Recently I recommended another of Jessica Day George books--this time it is Dragon Slippers (Bloomsbury, 2007). I love the humor in this story, which you'll see right away in the opening paragraph:
"It was my aunt who decided to give me to the dragon. Not that she was evil, or didn't care for me. It's just that we were very poor, and she was, as we said in those parts, dumber than two turnips in a rain barrel."
Meet Creelisel Carlbrun whom even a dragon doesn't want, even if she is a virgin. Read how with embroidery thread Creel seeks her fortune in the king's city. There are plenty of surprises along the way and a satisfying ending.
My husband enjoyed the book, too.
Remember I said series? The author didn't intend to write a sequel to this book, but . . . Read here to see why she did. Dragon Flight is the next book. And Dragon Spear is the final book in the trilogy.
