    The Magical Misadventures of Prunella Bogthistle by Deva Fagan (dylanesque)
    dylanesque: Searching for Dragons and the Magical Misadventures of Prunella Bogthistle share an irreverent, light-hearted tone, a fun duo of interesting main characters, and a rich magical world (although I would say this is a stronger element in the Misadventures).

I had forgotten all the small things that make this series great. (The pink teddy bears! How could I have forgotten the pink teddy bears!) And when I was younger I totally didn't appreciate all the world building Wrede did in this book. I do now, and love the backdrop it played for the story. ( )

The second book in the fun series Enchanted Forest Chronicles!
This sequel features the return of the beloved characters in the first book, while introducing a new character that you are sure to warm up to rather fast. It's not so vastly different than the first book.

Kazul has gone missing, and Cimorene sets out to find her, teaming up with Mendanbar, King of the Enchanted Forest, along the way. (The verbose research magician Telemain joins their group as well.) Another excellent installment! ( )

Thoroughly enjoyable! Loved it! ( )

And now a story from the Prince’s perspective – only he’s a king, King Mandanbar, the King of the Enchanted Wood. And even though everyone thinks he needs to get married, since he’s overworked, he absolutely refuses to have anything to do with princesses. Luckily for him, Cimorene is not your ordinary princess, and when she needs some assistance rescuing the King of the Dragons, Mandanbar gets the chance to get to know her. Solid and entertaining fantasy, with no cloying sweetness or condescending manners. ( )
