Once upon a time there was a princess who acts like an animal. She was impolite to everyone. whereas a dragon which lives in a cave on high mountain was very polite and sweet. The princess wanted to change her position with the dragon. After that, the dragon received lots of love from all people, but the princess got to change like a dragon. Recently there are lots of children who not follow their parent's word. Chilren can learn the courtesy and polite manner from this book.
A book about a princess who is very rude and mean, and a dragon who is very poised and sweet. They switch places and makes the world happier. You can talk about how stereotypes are not correct. Also touch on children who misbehave. I thought this book was kind of funny, however I didn't like how the rude princess was happy in the end after they switched places. I would rather have her learn her lesson by being nicer.
This book is about a princess who wants to be a dragon, and a dragon who wants to be a princess. Although the book is good at highlighting that it's ok to be something different to what we are expected to be, I feel like the author could have covered that aspect a bit more in the story.All in all the book is enjoyable and a good read.
-a book that puts a twist on the thought of a princess and a dragon-the true princess acts like a dragon, and the dragon acts like a princess, so they switch places-they enjoy their switch because earlier they were always looked upon with stereotypes-shows another perspective of the dragon and princess
