Igraine the Brave

By: Cornelia Funke
Igraine lives in a castle with her magician parents and her brother, also a magician.  But, Igraine finds magic boring - she wants to be a knight.  Igraine could not have imagined how quickly she would find out just what it takes to be a knight.  When her parents accidentally turn themselves into pigs, and Osmund shows up to try to overtake the castle, Igraine must use her knightly skills to help protect her family and her home.

Mrs. Senechal says:
Cornelia Funke has written one of my favorite trilogies - Inkheart.  This book is a good book for someone who likes fantasy stories but isn't quite ready for the length and difficulty of reading books like Inkheart.  Igraine is a great heroine, and the other characters in the book are fun and unique.  I enjoyed seeing how the story would end!
