The Princess and the Dragon by Audrey Wood


The Princess and the Dragon by Audrey Wood

When a princess who behaves like a dragon meets a dragon who behaves like a princess, who knows what will happen! This is suitable for discussion of preconceptions and gender roles.


The Princess and the Dragon is beautifully illustrated with big, funny pictures. The book helps you realise that people are not always like you imagine them to be. The Princess was quite naughty and not very gentle but she met a dragon who was very gentle and liked ballet! So they change roles with hilarious results. -- Tracey Betty Bookmark There's not a simpering princess or fire-breathing dragon to be seen anywhere in The Princess and the Dragon. On the contrary, the princess has a 'Don't touch me! I'm perfect

's lair there lives a piano playing, perfectly mannered, mythical monster who is so cultured that when he/she swaps lives with the princess nobody in the kingdom notices, or so they say. Nursery Equipment (Nursery World)'
