9780739356180: Igraine the Brave

Igraine, who turns twelve tomorrow, dreams of becoming a famous knight. But today, like most days, life at the family castle remains . . . rather boring.

Until the nefarious nephew of the baroness-next-door shows up. Greedy Osmund’s got a dastardly plan to capture Pimpernel Castle and steal the singing magic books that belong to Igraine’s mom and dad. Complicating matters, on the eve of the siege her parents misspeak a spell and turn themselves into pigs! (How inconvenient.)

Igraine’s birthday wish has come true, and the challenge is bigger than she ever bargained for: Will she face her fears and find the courage to 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.
