I fell in love with the book and the this story. I remember i didn't want to give it back to the library :) The idea of the dragon slippers i really adore it that's what makes this book special. And that cover art gorgeous!

Creel has a lovely name. I agree with Grace_Kalman about wanting to see everything be perfect, though......

Okay, this was really good. I highly enjoyed reading it, but the end needed a little more time to make it satisfactory. You can tell that everything is going to be perfect, but I wish she had let us see everything be perfect. Otherwise, a great read.

This is a REALLY good book. Who wouldn't want a dragon for a friend? If you haven't read it, you should. (Also the two sequels, which are equally awesome.)

"She wanted dragon gold. She got a pair of shoes. Many stories tell of damsels in distress, who are rescued from the clutches of fire-breathing dragons by knights in shining armor, and swept off to live happily ever after. This is not one of those stories. True, when Creel’s aunt suggests sacrificing her to the local dragon, it is with the hope that the knight will marry Creel and that everyone (aunt and family included) will benefit handsomely. Yet it’s Creel who talks her way out of the dragon’s clutches. And it’s Creel who walks for days on end to seek her fortune in the king’s city with only a bit of embroidery thread and a strange pair of slippers in her possession. But even Creel could not have guessed the outcome of this tale. For in a country on the verge of war, Creel unknowingly possesses not just any pair of shoes, but a tool that could be used to save her kingdom…or destroy it." (Summary from www.jessicadaygeorge.com)

I had been struggling to get published for nine years, and now I had been rejected 187 times and had a baby who cried from exhaustion all night but wouldn't sleep! One night, very tired, my husband and I decided that I would take a break from writing for a while, and just focus on our son and trying to get him to sleep. And eat. And stop crying. So of course he went to bed that night without any fuss. And of course, right as I was shutting down my laptop for the night, the entire story of Dragon Slippers just downloaded into my brain! I knew every line, every name, every dragon and what they hoarded. It was beautiful. It was magical. And it hasn't happened since! - Jessica day George Clever, well-plotted and good fun. -Kirkus Reviews [T]he fairy-tale action and vivid scenes, from glittering dragon cave to posh dress shop, are captivating, and readers will easily connect with brave Creel, who weathers betrayals and learns to value true friends and her own talents. -Booklist
