Currently I'm reading Dragons Beware by Jorge Aguirre and Rafael Rosado. It's the sequel to their Giants Beware from a few years ago. Both of them star Claudette, a young warrior-to-be; Gaston, her younger brother, who is good at cooking; and Marie, her friend, who is practicing to be a princess/diplomat. Also featuring Claudette's father Augustine, a blacksmith who lost his legs and an arm in a fight with the titular dragon. Among other characters. (*Pant, wheeze*)

Anyway, the plot gets kicked off when an evil wizard threatens the town they all live in. Augustine sets off on his own to find the one thing that can stop him, a sword that can stop any magic that is now in the belly of an unbeatable dragon, and Claudette and her friends decide to follow him. It's a charming little fantasy romp, with a twist or two along the way. Just a word of advice: You'll probably want to read Giants Beware before this one, as that book does a better job of setting up the characters.
