Shape shifting ogre, ala Puss in Boots. A strange land, a twelve-year old girl far from home with her money stolen and the free apprenticeship she'd been seeking abolished. A dragon with a talent for deduction and an ogre with a missing dog. Two castles. Toast and cheese skewers. A princess. And some mansioning.
Light and sweet and a quick read, and I did like it. Yes, yes I did.
