9780439903790: Igraine The Brave

In the spirit of DRAGON RIDER and THE THIEF LORD, an enchanting fairy tale told with Cornelia's trademark warmth and wit: Perfect Funke fare for readers in the middle grades--Cornelia's "sweet spot"!

Igraine dreams of becoming a famous knight just like her great grandfather, but the truth is, life at the family castle is rather boring. Until the nephew of the baroness-next-door shows up. He's got a dastardly plan to capture the castle and claim as his own the wonderful singing spell books that belong to Igraine's magician parents. To make matters worse, at the very moment of the siege, her mom and dad botch a spell, turning themselves into pigs! Aided by a Gentle Giant and a Sorrowful Knight, it's up to Igraine to be brave and save the day--and the books!

From AudioFile:

Twelve-year-old Igraine longs to become a knight, but her family of magicians cant understand her dream. When life at the family castle is threatened by the dastardly Greedy Osmund, Igraines skills in horsemanship and swordplay are pressed into action. Narrator Xanthe Elbrick has just the right touch for Igraine, whose courage and determination overshadow her youth and inexperience. Elbrick employs a superb range of accents for Igraines various sidekicks. She portrays Igraines older brother with a delightful combination of teenage scorn and begrudging pride. Igraines parents, who have accidentally turned themselves into pigs, are simultaneously supportive and piggy. Elbricks effortless-sounding enunciation keeps the action lively but lighthearted. N.M.C.
