It was awesome! The beginning was OK, but when the girl met the dragon, things picked up a lot. In this book, a girl named Creel was sent to a dragon by her aunt in hopes to have a knight rescue her, and save her family from poverty. Creel bargained with the dragon hoping to get gold, but instead got a pair of slippers. She goes off to look for her own money in the king’s city by doing embroidery, and finds out the slippers are actually quite special.
