#BookTour: Grilled Cheese and Dragons (Princess Pulverizer, #1) by @NancyKrulik, Ben Balistreri





About the Book:

Meet the princess who'd rather wear a suit of armor than a crown!

Princess Serena (or as she prefers, Princess Pulverizer) doesn't want to be a princess--she wants to be knight! But her father, King Alexander of Empiria, thinks she still has a lot to learn when it comes to exhibiting valiant behavior. So he presents a challenge: the princess must first go on a Quest of Kindness and perform good deeds to prove that she truly deserves to go to knight school. With help from a friendly dragon named Dribble and a perpetually terrified knight-in-training named Lucas, can she complete her quest and discover what it really takes to be a hero?

This title will be released on January 16, 2018.

Notes and Opinions:  This is Awesome Annie sorry for not doing a video but I am currenly sick so talking isn't good for me right now!  So my mom is helping me write up this review.  This book was adorable and I couldn't believe that I got to read it this early.  I can't wait for more of these.  I loved all the cartoons inside on the pages and the story was so amazing.  I really liked how the Princess didn't want to be like a normal Princess and she wanted to do other things. Although I had to have some help with some of the words I think that this book would be great for ages 7-10.  My sister even thought it was cute and she is 13.  The story was funny and was all about empowering girls! 

Go Into This One Knowing: Female Empowerment, Funny
