A beautiful, heartwarming tale about a Princess and her dragon who fly off into the sunset to smash the patriarchy.

Princess Adrienne is tired of waiting to be rescued, so she sets out with her friends (including her dragon guardian) to discover her own adventure. Good for little princesses and anybody who likes adventures.

How have I never read this graphic novel before? I adore this series and wish I had discovered it as a young girl. Adrienne is awesome and I want to be her when I grow up.

It was cute and quirky with a zany dragon. The little thing about the prince school ...

I loved everything about this story, from the art to the dragon to the AMAZING PRINCESS. Oh jeez. If you like fantasy and humor and dragons and girls being awesome then you should read this immediately.

Are you craving a strong female character that isn't on the fringe or catering to a male audience? Here is a story that does all that and more. This graphic novel takes on, and successfully (and with humor) takes down one ridiculous fairy tale troupe after another.

Ditch the stereotypes. This princess saves herself, the dragon and her sisters too. Can't wait for the next book.

I wanted to like this - but the message was just too heavy-handed. I couldn't have fun with the story because it was too busy beating me over the head with the message that *gasp* girls can do stuff! So many stories have made the same point with much more skill.

Not your typical princess book. This is a princess on a quest to not be just another damsel in distress trapped in a tower. Funny and action packed this is a fast read and so enjoyable.

The front cover of the comic book says this is a story Disney should have been telling for the last 20 years, and I wholeheartedly agree! This comic is by far one of the best things ever created, in my opinion! It's so smart, so adventurous, and so humorous, while keeping a great fantasy plot and original story. And the best part? The main characters are tough, tomboy, no-nonsense girls! That's right, female butt-kicking power! I adore Adrienne, she's so cool, and I love how she's strong and independent and willing to speak her mind. This is definitely the kind of story I'd recommend for anyone to read, it's just pure awesomeness.
