Meet the princess who'd rather wear a suit of armor than a crown! Princess Serena (or as she prefers, Princess Pulverizer) doesn't want to be a princess--she wants to be knight! But her father, King Alexander of Empiria, thinks she still has a lot to learn when it comes to exhibiting valiant behavior. So he presents a challenge: the princess must first go on a Quest of Kindness and perform good deeds to prove that she truly deserves to go to knight school. With help from a friendly dragon named Dribble and a perpetually terrified knight-in-training named Lucas, can she complete her quest and discover what it really takes to be a hero?

This is a funny fantasy book with a spunky princess who is determined to be a knight. I definitely found myself smiling a lot while reading this book.

Princess Serena has renamed herself Princess Pulverizer to express her desire to be a heroic, adventurous, violent knight. She has no desire to become a polite, refined lady. Except her father the king won't let her attend Knight School. "This has nothing to do with you being a girl," he tells her. "There's more to being a knight than riding off on exciting adventures. It takes great honor, kindness, and sacrifice," which are qualities he sees her lacking. However, he is giving her the chance to prove him wrong by completing a Quest of Kindness--if she can complete eight good deeds, he will allow her to enter Knight School. And so she sets off on an adventure in search of opportunities to do things she never has before--and manages to meet an ogre, a dragon, and more as she goes.

The constant humor and playfulness keep this from feeling at all moralizing. The book doesn't have any problem poking tongue-in-cheek fun at its spoiled, bossy protagonist, even as she does manage to learn a few things along the way. Lots of fun.
