Political upheaval sends Princess Tilda fleeing from her kingdom in the company of two hopeful dragon slayers. The princess never had any interest in chasing dragons. The pain from her crippled foot was too great, and her dream was to write a book. But the princess finds herself making friends with magical horses, facing the Wild Hunt, and pointing a sword at fire-breathing dragons. While doing things she never imagined, Tilda finds qualities in herself she never knew she possessed.
Handbook for Dragon Slayers is a deeply satisfying coming-of-age tale wrapped in a magical adventure story.
"This accessible medieval fantasy features three likable young people, several imaginatively depicted magical animals, and a couple of dastardly villains. A surprising transformation scene provides Tilda with a new point of view and a catalyst for her change of heart....This engaging fantasy traces the adventures of a bookish but brave heroine." -- Carolyn Phelan, Booklist
