Story Summary

Cimorene loves to take fencing lessons, magic lessons, Latin lessons and juggling lessons; in short, all the things that aren't considered proper for a young princess. And she would rather be eaten by a dragon than marry Prince Therandil. That can be arranged says the little frog at her feet...well maybe not eaten, but to cook and clean for them, that is if they like your cherries jubilee!
