Wrede, Patricia C.  
Enchanted Forest #1 / #2 / #3 / #4: The Enchanted Forest Chronicles: Dealing with Dragons / Searching for Dragons / Calling on Dragons / Talking to Dragons
Signed by the author on the title page. Ages 10 and up. Four trade paperbacks in a printed slipcase.

Dealing with Dragons: Princess Cimorene is everything a princess is not supposed to be: headstrong, tomboyish, smart . . . and bored. So bored that she runs away to live with a dragon. Soon she's coping with a witch, a jinn, a death-dealing talking bird, a stone prince, and some very oily wizards.

Searching for Dragons: What drained the magic from and burned down a section of the Enchanted Forest? While searching for answers, young King Mendanbar learns that Kazul the dragon king is missing. With the aid of a broken-down magic carpet, a magical sword, and a few buckets of soapy lemon water, Mendanbar and Cimorene set out to find Kazul.

Calling on Dragons: Those wizards are back, and they've figured out a way to take over the Enchanted Forest once and for all - and what they have planned isn't pretty. It's up to Queen Cimorene to stop them, with a little help from Kazul the dragon king, Morwen the witch, Telemain the magician, two cats, and a blue, flying donkey-rabbit named Killer.

Talking to Dragons: After Daystar's mom, Queen Cimorene, gives him a magic sword and kicks him out of the house, the tricky part is figuring out what he's supposed to do with the magic sword. Where is he supposed to go? And why does everyone he meets seem to know who he is? It's going to take a particularly hotheaded fire-witch, a very verbose lizard, and a badly behaved baby dragon to help him figure it all out.
