When the young Princess Laura secretly rescues a baby dragon from her father's hunt the dragon predicts that - one day in the future she will be the cause of his death. When Laura reaches marriageable age her father presents her with a choice of suitors - one from each of the surrounding kingdoms. Laura's chosen suitor must kill a dragon to prove his worthiness to the King. What can she do to make sure that doesn't happen?
Every family's got its own Princess or two right? The Princesses in Your life will thank you for reading them my little book Princess Laura and the Unsuitable Dragon Suitors in which they will meet our hero - Laura - who's not scared of anything. Exploring the wild woods? Her shoes bear the scars. Meeting dogs so tall she has to look up to see their glistening bitey teeth? Nice doggie. And as the cover reveals she's not even scared of dragons. But don't mention spiders. Oh - she's gone.
Every Princess has their maid, and you'll laugh at the antics of Laura's maid - the "brains department" in the Princess business - with her wealth of worldly advice - who struggles to turn out the Princess in her charge with an appearance that looks royally presentable. You'll also meet the various (unsuitable) Princely suitors from the surrounding kingdoms, although it may be that with different names you might've met some people like them already in real life.20 years after writing this story for my sister and her daughter I still love the characters and I hope that with this retelling as a proper book you will grow to love them too.
About the Author
It seems likely that the next generation of readers will remember me more for 4 little comedic childrens' stories - published on my author site goblinsearch between 2001 and 2004 - than all the many thousands of serious articles I wrote about the computer market in the 10 years before and the 17 years after.
It started with a short bedtime story I wrote as a surprise for my godson - Alexander Woyte and the Goblins. Then one thing led to another and I began to self identify myself as writing that kind of thing too.
