Locked away in a tower, Princess Adrienne does not need a Prince to save her. She can save herself.

Trapped in a tower with her sisters, Princess Adrienne enlists the help of her dragon Sparky to get her down from the tower.

Princess Adrienne is facing a marriage she doesn't want. So she rescues herself and sets out to save her sisters from the same fate.

Be yourself and go princeless! Great humor, feel-good writing and a good old-fashioned quest. The first volume is certainly the best, but it's still worth following down the rabbit hole.

A beautiful, heartwarming tale about a Princess and her Dragon who fly off into the sunset together to smash the patriarchy.

Princess Adrienne is tired of waiting to be rescued, so she sets out with her friends (including her dragon guardian) to discover her own adventure. Good for little princesses and anybody who likes adventures.

I've been waiting for this princess story my whole life! Adrienne isn't content to wait for some prince to come and get her--she takes matters into her own hands and saves herself (as the title suggests) and then takes it a step farther to go rescue all of her sisters! While this is an all ages comic, adults will find plenty of funny asides to make it entertaining, and it can lead to great discussions with kids and teens about gender stereotypes and tropes.

How have I never read this graphic novel before? I adore this series and wish I had discovered it as a young girl. Adrienne is awesome and I want to be her when I grow up.

I read this with my 6 and 8 year old kids and we loved the humor, the tension, the adventure, and the discussions of gender inequality in family dynamics and society. Okay, maybe that last element was mostly something that I was grateful for an opportunity to discuss with my kids in a positive setting. We followed this up with some of the additional issues of Princeless via our library's Hoopla service, although this is one was want to own and reread again as the kids get older and our understanding changes. HIGHLY recommended.

It was cute and quirky with a zany dragon. The little thing about the prince school ...

I loved everything about this story, from the art to the dragon to the AMAZING PRINCESS. Oh jeez. If you like fantasy and humor and dragons and girls being awesome then you should read this immediately.

Ditch the stereotypes. This princess saves herself, the dragon and her sisters too. Can't wait for the next book.

I wanted to like this - but the message was just too heavy-handed. I couldn't have fun with the story because it was too busy beating me over the head with the message that *gasp* girls can do stuff! So many stories have made the same point with much more skill.
