Annotation Mystery, dragons, and fairy tales merge together in this fast-paced story about a clever girl who longs for a better life. Raised on a small island in a poor family, Elodie's parents are sending her to the town of Two Castles to seek an apprenticeship as a weaver. Secretly longing to be a mansioner, an actor, Lodie is unable to find a proper apprenticeship anywhere and ends up working with the dragon Meenore, who sells food in the market but is also a detective. Soon, Elodie is secreted away in an ogre's castle as a mere kitchen maid, trying to discover the truth about his missing dog. Danger, excitement, and possible death loom large! Inspired by the story of "Puss ?N Boots," Gail Carson Levine is the author of ELLA ENCHANTED.
Editors Note Twelve-year-old Elodie journeys to Two Castles in hopes of studying acting but instead becomes apprentice to a dragon, who teaches her to be observant and use reasoning, thus helping her to uncover who is poisoning the king.
