The Runaway Princess by Kate Coombs

Princess Margaret is NOT your fairy tale princess. She loves frogs, her best friend is the gardner, and she is definitely not ready for marriage. Her parents have a different plan...her father needs an heir to the throne so he decides to have a competition for her hand. The first prince to kill the dragon, return with the dragon's booty, and kill the witch in the woods will win. Margaret will have nothing to do with this, so her father imprisons her in a tall tower (sound familiar?). With the help of her friends, she escapes the tower to warn the dragon and the witch...and so the adventure begins. This is a very funny blending of many fairy tales, that will have you laughingall the way through. Reed Reads Score: 4.5
