Princesses and Dragons/Prinsessor och drakar

A truly wonderful, different book about seven princesses, one for each day of the week, and even more dragons, written and illustrated by dragon- and princess experts Christina Björk and Eva Eriksson. 

Princesses and dragons have populated stories since the beginning of time. Now new, independent, fun princesses take their place in this contemporary children’s book.

Princesses and Dragons contains seven princess stories. Each one is about an incredibly exciting and unexpected meeting between a princess and a dragon or a dragon family. One final story, where the seven princesses gather around the world’s largest Princess cake to celebrate Princess Matthiola’s birthday, is an extra bonus.

The princesses are just as competent as today’s girls are. They are connected to the internet, they have their own websites, electrical vacuum cleaners in their doll houses, scooters and golden TV sets. Times have changed in the castle’s nursery!

The seven princesses take good care of themselves and save themselves from the dragon – if they haven’t already managed to turn it into a playmate or changed jobs with it. Though one princess gets really disappointed when her dragon doesn’t manage to kidnap her.
