"Dragon Slipper" Jessica Day George
This story is about a girl named Creel. when Creels aunt suggests that she should sacrifice her niece to the local deadly dragon. Then maybe a Knight-in-shining-armor would come and sweep her off her feet and marry her. Instead of the handsome Knight saving Creel from this magnificent beast, it is Creel who talks her way out of the evil dragon's clutches. And usually the Knight would carry his fair maiden on a noble steed. But that doesn't really happen in this book, Creel has to walk for days on the end seeking her fortune in the King's city with only a little bit of fabric and a small pair of strange slippers.
