Izmelda the Fairest Dragon of Them All!

by Joan Marr, Lala Watkins
A delightful story that turns courtly clichés upside down!
Izmelda the dragon knows everything there is to know about princesses—she’s read the fairy tales, held the proper tea parties, and perfected her curtsy. But she’s never actually met a princess! When Izmelda flies to the nearest kingdom, she’s delighted to run into Princess Penelope. But Penelope isn’t exactly what Izmelda was expecting. Princess Penelope is not interested in cupcakes or glass slippers; she’s mostly concerned about avoiding the witches. Will Izmelda and Penelope find a way to get along—and maybe even help each other?

Joan Marr spends her days editing words for grown-ups and her nights writing stories for kids. She has a degree in English from the University of Notre Dame, where she learned how to properly punctuate dragon dialogue. She currently lives in West Bradford, Pennsylvania, with her husband, two kids, two cats, and one very energetic dog. This is her debut picture book.
