FROM THE AUTHOR
I was inspired to write Henrietta the Dragon Slayer (Book 1 of the Five Kingdom series) because all the fairy tales I read as a kid were always about boys as heroes: Jack the Giant Killer this, Jack and the Seven-Headed Giant that, and of course, Jack and the Beanstalk.
Hey! I wanted to know what about Jill! Where's the girl hero?
That is why I wrote Henrietta The Dragon Slayer. I wanted, and still want, to have my girl heroine fight the good fight and have adventures, and save the day.
