    One thought on “Dragon Slippers

    1. Jessica on said:

      My first published novel, and I have to say I am pretty DARN impressed with myself I read it aloud to my son 6 years old because he wanted to know what was in Mommy s books He liked it as well

    2. AhmedEjaz on said:

      This book is one of those books which may put you off by its beginning Not that it s too slow It s because it s toouneventful to enjoy I remember how I suffered at least 40% of it I was inexplicably annoyed But I wanted to get through this book at least once to say that finally I have read a book recommended to me by After 50% I FINALLY began to enjoy it And I am thankful now to for the recommendation OVERVIEW Creel is an orphan Her aunt decided to give her to the dragon because they are poor an [...]

    3. Cassie on said:

      This was one of those books that completely surprised me I thought I had an idea of what the book was going to be about because the initial premise is Girl s family is poor, aunt decides giving her to a dragon to be rescued will improve their life immensely, and that premise reminds me a great deal of Dealing with Dragons by Patricia Wrede So I was expecting a humorous fantasy tale filled with wacky adventures Instead, I got a somewhat humorous political story with a strong female heroine whose [...]

    4. Cara on said:

      This book reminded me of when I had my fantasy phase All I would read was fantasy I know better now but I would have gobble this up then just like I did now.Creel is a poor girl from Carlieff, she has lost her mother and father and is now living with her aunt Her aunt has the genius idea to send Creel to purposely get taken by a dragon, so that a charming prince will rescue and of course marry her Through that marriage the whole family would benefit and no longer be scraping by to make ends meet [...]

    5. Amy on said:

      reads original review groans inwardly 15 year old Amy strikes againThis was a wonderful re read I m surprised I haven t re read it before Creative, well paced, and funtely a treasure I definitely disagree with my original assessment of religion in this book I think it adds a nice flavor Of course, I also appreciate myth a lot now than I did at that age This was a highly amusing, very well written book Easily for younger grades, it also appeals to older ones I truly enjoyed it, and found the mos [...]

    6. Heather on said:

      Bravo I have to confess, as much as I try to keep my tastes liberal I read classics, memoirs, fiction and non fiction , this is really my favorite kind of book I m proud to be your friend, Jessica this book was pure fun I especially liked the subtle reference to Goose Girl, another of my favorite reads This book is the rags to riches, up by her bootstraps story of a plucky, talented girl who happens to run into dragons a lot I loved the characters and the humor I was glad to see the open ending [...]

    7. Jessica on said:

      This is the British edition of Dragon Slippers I love it, it s a fun cover, and they ve changed the spellings color to colour, etc Also, they made me take out the word bloody , which is in the American version

    8. Thomas on said:

      Creel doesn t particularly care for her aunt and Creel s aunt doesn t particularly care for her, either, considering that she tries to sell Creel to a dragon After Creel s parents passed away she had no choice but to reside with her aunt But when her extended family runs into financial problems, Creel is sent to face a dragon in hopes of getting a dashing and wealthy knight to save her Things take a interesting turn when Creel walks away with a blue pair of slippers and a dream of owning a seam [...]

    9. Lady Vigilante (Feifei) on said:

      I read this book 4 years ago and I re read it recently so some of my views have changed 4.5 stars I distinctly remember why I chose to read this book It wasn t because of the cover if that is Shardas on the cover, it s a bit disappointing Ms George s writing just sucks you in from the very first page Though this is clearly fantasy, the story is believable and the characters are compelling Creel is from a poor family in little Carlieff Town, and is presented as a sacrifice as part of her aunt s s [...]

    10. TheBookSmugglers on said:

      Originally reviewed on The Book SmugglersFollowing the death of her parents, Creel and her brother are grudgingly taken in by her aunt and uncle While her brother can pull his weight and helps out on the impoverished farm, Creel, unfortunately, has slightly less to offer She has no dowry, no special beauty or magical ability, and therefore has limited prospects for marriage To her aunt, Creel is another mouth to feed, until said aunt comes up with the brilliantly ridiculous idea to get rid of Cr [...]

    11. Kaethe on said:

      I love the Buffy film, and Legally Blonde, because they take young women with girly interests and use those to literally and metaphorically kick ass The heroine here is a talented seamstress, in a world where dressmaking is entirely manual labor While I enjoy a story about a girl taking up a sword to fight a dragon, a story in which a girl makes a deal with a dragon is even better And also, it reminds me of Dealing with Dragons.Brilliant.Library copy

    12. Valerie on said:

      I ve been putting this book off for a while now My only excuse is that I got caught up in rereading older favorites and newly released books I kind of had this great picture in my mind of how this book would be As per usual it was different than I thought and as per usual it was in a good way Hating to be a burden and hoping for a new and better life Creel reluctantly agrees to go with her Aunt s crazy plan to be captured by a dragon Her Aunt hopes to get a wealthy knight prince to rescue her an [...]

    13. Waffle...♥ on said:

      I m sorry to say this book was not as good as I expected I was about to give it 2 stars until I reached the final few chapters that got me me sitting up in my chair with wide eyes trying to absorb the story as quickly as possible to satisfy my curiosity I find that this novel has a great plot but the characters personality and actions are most debatable Creel, the heroine main character, is very intelligent as proven many times in the story She outwitted wise dragons that have lived for centurie [...]

    14. Lynn on said:

      When the family farm is in peril of foreclosure, Creel s aunt decides that Creel should visit the dragon on the hill in order to be saved by a knight who will also rescue the family s fortunes Creel rolls her eyes but finds herself throwing rocks at the cave entrance anyway, never seriously expecting to see a dragon But a dragon is there, even if he is old and tired and collects shoes instead of gold He gifts Creel with a pair of shoes of her choice and Creel, after choosing a beautiful pair of [...]

    15. Matt on said:

      I ve been searching for books that I can share with my daughters, so I checked this out based on recommendations for best books for young readers Turns out, it s already one of her favorite books, and she was mystified when it showed up in the library reserves because she knew she hadn t reserved it.I shouldn t be too surprised I think she s already read books than I have And, I can see why she likes the story It s got a spunky no nonsense heroine and a lot of sweet little touches, plus some ni [...]

    16. Heather Brinkerhoff Burdsal on said:

      I wanted to love this book, but I could only like it.First, Creel I mean, Creel Come on, son.Now, down to the business of my book malaise The foundation of the story doesn t sit well with me I am hung up on the whole slipper procurement I know the title of the book is Dragon Slippers, but really, the way she came by them makes no sense Creel originally wanted something of value from the dragon s hoard, like a fancy schmancy goblet, to sell for some quick cash to get her to the King s Seat But wh [...]

    17. Grace on said:

      Sometimes my own prejudices trip me up In this case, I m referring to the high ratings for this book, which made me try to read some of her other books first I was not that impressed.This book, however, rocks It rocks majorly Plus it has dragons Lots and lots of talking dragons with different personalities Off the top of my head, I can t think of one thing I disliked about the book There was something cute and sweet and uplifting about the entire book, although I did hate how that one girl didn [...]

    18. Amanda on said:

      For the first fifty pages or so of this book, I was just annoyed The author went out of her way to establish that Creel, the main character, was not pretty oh, but wait She was smart Ugh Why Whywhywhywhy Why must it always be one or the other Can t a girl be smart AND pretty Or better yet, why does it even matter how she looks Especially since this detail didn t really do anything to advance the story except give the reason why the protagonist thought no dragon would ever kidnap her I still stan [...]

    19. Sabine on said:

      I had the opportunity to meet Dragon Slippers author Jessica Day George at the LTUE conference this past month She was completely delightful and tons of fun, and her book was as great as she was It is the story of a young girl named Creel who is given to a dragon when her family can no longer support her I was enchanted from the first line on which reads It was my aunt who decided to give me to the dragon From that moment on I knew I had a winning book in my hands Creel is a great heroine and a [...]

    20. Hannah McManus on said:

      So this book was amazing I was not expecting it to be this good Gah.

    21. Amber Ditullio on said:

      I was first introduced to Jessica Day George s writing when I read about her book Tuesdays in the Castle A sentient castle Princes and Princesses who need to be in charge when their parents are feared dead People out to get them Perfect As soon as I finished reading it at the end of last year, I put the next book in the series, Wednesdays in the Castle, on my Want to Read list.I don t know why I hadn t gone looking for of her books I think it was the sheer number of books already on my plate So [...]

    22. Arminzerella on said:

      When Creel s folks die, she and her brother go to live with their aunt and uncle, who are terribly poor Creel s aunt has a brainstorm, though, that she is sure will end their financial difficulties once and for all There s only one catch Creel s got to be abducted by the local dragon and he s rather reluctant to have her So she makes a deal with the dragon, who really doesn t want to have to fight the knight whose coming to rescue her He gives her something from his treasure horde and in exchang [...]

    23. Wendy on said:

      Read this with my 6th Grader We both really liked it even though neither of us like the fantasy genre We re excited to read book 2 and see what happens to Creel, Prince Luka and the Dragons

    24. Small Review on said:

      Jessica Day George is rapidly becoming one of my new favorite authors Her books are like cotton candy They re light, sweet, and happy There are antagonists and hurdles, but you know they ll be resolved and good will prevail in the end Sometimes things work out a little too perfectly, but this comes across in a cozy, heartwarming, makes this reader happy way than in an annoying Mary Sue manner When you just want to take a break from life and get lost in a nice book that ll make you smile, Jessic [...]

    25. Rebecca on said:

      This is one of my all time favorites I might even go so far as to say it IS my ALL TIME favorite This book is amazing I have read it so many times I have the first line memorized well, really the whole first page , and that line had me hooked the very first time I read it It was my aunt who decided to give me to the dragon Creel lives with her aunt and uncle on their poor farm with lots of impoverished cousins Her silly aunt decides to give creel to a dragon in the hopes that a dashing noble wil [...]

    26. Kaylabee on said:

      I saw this book on my recommendations list And, naturally, instantly added it to my to read list I mean, the title is just so enticing Dragons AND shoes No Flippin Way I HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK not to mention the awesome looking dragon on the cover So then I check it out at my local library which was surprising since apparently somebody in this town keeps on checking out ALL OF THE BOOKS that I want to read before I get there whoever you are, I WILL find you And I WILL put a stop to this madnessB [...]

    27. Shauna on said:

      Delightful I am rating this a full five stars because I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish, even if it may not be new or challenging or amazing It was, instead, a very fun surprise of a book that I picked up randomly off the library shelf only to find now that my good reader friends Jean and Donna have already read and loved this book , and that I got caught up into smiling all the while, I might add right from the first sentence I liked that it was absolutely clean not a hint of bad lan [...]

    28. Kat Heckenbach on said:

      Okay probably like 3.5 stars I discovered this book when a friend recommended it, and I love just anything dragon The story is sweet and fun, with a likable main character and a twist on the dragon as treasure hoarder trope I did, at one point, almost stop reading because the dragons moved to the background and the story started to slow, but I am very glad I gave it a second shot because the plot picked up again right after the point I d considered stopping The dragons came back into the action [...]
