"Dealing With Dragons" is such a fun combination of strong characters, goofs, magic, and action. I read this so many times as a young reader, and it is a keystone book on my shelves. I'm happy to say it has held up for me over the years and all the rereads! :)

Ten short stories, some funny, some more serious, but all featuring Wrede's clever and engaging writing. I reread this to see which books would work best for reading to a group of 3rd-5th graders, and found two that did ("The Princess, the Cat, and the Unicorn" and "The Sixty-Two Curses of Caliph Arenschadd"). But, you know, I had to read the whole collection, just to be sure...

I didnt like this book as much as the first but I still really enjoyed it.

I loved this conclusion to the trilogy. This alternate version of the U.S. 'west' with its magical wildlife is fantastic. The books are a bit slow in parts but never boring. Overall great books, especially the first one and this one.

SPOILER ALERT: While I love that Eff and William ended up together I wish it hadn't happened so suddenly. It felt a bit rushed and I didn't get to relish that satisfying feeling of the main characters finding each other. While I know this wasn't a romance novel and it wasn't a large part of the plot all I could think when I finished the book was "they didnt even kiss!"… (mais)
