A New York Times Notable Book
"Donaldson, the current children's laureate in Britain, is a master of witty comic rhyme and original stories with heart. Here she and Scheffler outdo themselves with the smart, funny -- dare I say, deep? -- story of a dragon in training, a princess who wants to be a doctor and a knight who could use a bit of rescuing. The book gets a gold star too." -- New York Times
"While Scheffler's characters are straight out of fantasy, they exude a sweet, down-to-earth quality that makes them instantly sympathetic. Readers will get a kick out of the genial self-awareness in his cartooning -- on almost every spread, a character glances at the audience as if to say, 'Can you believe this?'" -- Publishers Weekly
"A delightful new twist on happily-ever-after." -- School Library Journal
