About the Book

Full of humor and high adventure—and plenty of slightly skewed fairy-tale motifs—this frothy, fractured fairy tale will delight young readers.

Once upon a time in the kingdom of Ardendale there lived a spirited princess named Ivy, who had no interest in being rescued by Prince Charming, and an undersized dragon named Elridge, who was better at solving word puzzles than breathing fire. Sailing into this world on a ship made of whale bones came Romil, a handsome prince with dastardly designs on Princess Ivy and her kingdom. Ivy and Elridge, both disappointments to their families, join forces to try and thwart Romil’s evil plot. In the process these traditional enemies become fast friends, discover hidden strengths, and earn the respect of all who know them.

“Evenly paced with humor to match, this fractured fairy tale will delight tween readers.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“Ivy is an engaging alternative to the standard damsel-in-distress figure. . . . A lushly vivid setting, witty dialogue, and lots of adventure.”
