Book Details

Product Description
The dragon roared and the clearing filled with shining whiteness. The flames burned with the pure deadly brightness that can only come from dragon fire. Annie closed her eyes but the scene imprinted on her vision; The knight tall and proud with his sword raised high and the dragon on her haunches, wings spread wide above them.

When she opened her eyes all that was left of him was red hot armor glowing on the ground and a skittish grey mare neighing in panic.

Can a damsel ever be the one to do the rescuing? Annie Brave thinks so. Her father, one of the most famous heroes of them all, is missing, presumed eaten. With no heroes available to rescue him from the clutches of the evil wizard, Greenlott, Annie takes his book 'How to Slay Dragons - and Other Advice for the Hero in Training' and sets off on a rescue mission.Teaming up with Roger of Rockfield, an honorable liar, she embarks on a series of adventures which are far from traditional.

Whether these adventures involve Annie saving Roger from giant spiders or Annie and Roger dealing with the amorous advances of a prince frog (not to be confused with a frog prince) every incident leads them further on a voyage of self-discovery they never intended to make.
