    I Also Recommend:

    I stumbled upon this series, but it did not disapoint!

    I was at a used book store and a teacher had brought in all four of the books from the series. How she could part with them I dont know!! I had finished the entire series within just a few short days! The characters are funny and interesting and each story is about something new. You will fall in love with the Princess who doesn't want to be saved from the dragon's cave. The King of the forest who pulls the strings of the forest to make it do his bidding. The evil wizards who are constantly trying to steal all the magic for themselves. And then in a final battle in Book four a young man who doesn't even know he is a prince will attempt to save the forest from an evil he doesn't know even exist!

    a decade later

    It's been roughly a decade since I read these books. I found them at the local library around the age of ten. And still to this day I remember the story, the characters, the magic and the joy from theses books. They are more than worth their read.

    Talking to Dragons

    I liked reading talking to dragons because of its action and medevil theme. The setting is medeveil times with castles and dragons etc. The story is told in Mendabar's point of view as he battles his way to save his kingdom. the main character is Mendabar. Mendabar is trying to get his sword bac that he lost so he battles his way through many tough obsticles like withces, warlocks and many other mythical creatures. I would have to say that my story is historical fiction becasue of the dragons and wizards. I would recommend my book because it was very actiony. While I was reading Talking to dragons I couldn't wait till the next part came because I was on the edge of my seat the whole time I read it.

    Can't put the book down.

    When I was little I read this book and fell in love with the characters. I love that all the characters are not your tipical character, we got this princess that can wield a sword and was not raise to do such a thing. It is an amazing book and you just got to read it and you will love it.

    Wonderful, interesting series!

    This series was great fun! It's like the anti-fairy tale, and yet, you still end up with the same happy feelings that you get at the end of a classical fairy tale story. Wonderfully written and entertaining.

    DRAGONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm a huge fan of dragons and mythical creatures. These books are mostly directed at the princess, but I love them I've reread them a couple times. If you like adventure and getting out of the reg. princess gets in trouble and prince comes and rescuse her you'll love these books. I hope a 5th one comes out very soon.

    These are my favorite books in the whole world so far! Patricia C. Wrede really puts you in the place of the characters, so it's like your actually there! I'm sad that there's no more in that series.

    These are fantastic books

    I have read and I own all of the Enchanted Forest Chronicles Books, the Dragon ones and the one with all the little stories. These are great books that every kid should read. It has a good message in them. Be who you are, not what people want you to be ) Cimorine is a strong girl, but in body and mind, and will not stop at anything to get what she wants.

    An entertaining read.

    A funfulled adventure story for children of all ages! I first read the Chronicles back in the 7th grade, but it still ranks as one of my favorites even in the 9th!

    What GREAT books!

    I absolutely loved every one of these books!They are so different from any other book with a princess and a dragon. In these stories the princess is not forced to go with the dragons,she runs away. And the dragons are not going to hurt her, they are nice. Thses books are wonderfully written and very entertaining. The enchanted froest chronicles are a must read and i would recommend them to anyone!

    Love it, it has lots of humor

    Most of the books I read have little or no humor in them, so this spices up my reading.
