I really liked Dragon Slippers. Its a sweet quick read. ( )
  BookLoversLife | Apr 24, 2014 |
I enjoyed Jessica Day George's twelve dancing princess books so much that I felt a need to try her other novels, and I wasn't disappointed. This one starts with Creel's aunt trying to sacrifice her to a dragon as a ploy to attract a knight for a husband, but Creel decides instead to try to make a deal with the dragon and avoid anyone getting hurt. However, the deal she ends up making has some incredibly unexpected consequences...

Fun! Adventure! Girls and dragons as friends! It's exactly what I wanted. ( )

Some secondary characters are rather flat and stereotypical, and a lot of details are tied up too neatly and quickly at the conclusion, but the plot is sound and well written.
added by Katya0133 | editSchool Library Journal, Amanda Raklovits (Oct 1, 2007)
 
The plot elements are sometimes awkwardly stitched together, but the exciting, fairy-tale action and vivid scenes, from glittering dragon cave to posh dress shop, are captivating.

Not entirely original, but clever, well-plotted and good fun.
