The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is a charming fairytale with a twist from a much-loved, best-selling author. With Cornelia’s trademark wit, warmth and quirky characterization, readers from 7 upwards can’t fail to be charmed by a feisty heroine and her big-hearted adventures amongst her mad-cap family, friends and foe.

Synopsis

Igraine The Brave by Cornelia Funke

An adventure is what Igraine wishes for most in the world - and on her twelfth birthday she finds one. Everyone at Castle Pimpernel is looking forward to Igraine's birthday. But when her magical present goes wrong and her parents turn themselves into pigs, it's up to Igraine to put things right - even if that means facing giants, three-headed dragons and a particularly Spiky Knight.

Reviews

I love Igraine because she is so feisty. Whether it’s spells going wrong, annoying big brothers, finding your castle is under siege, or having to dash off on a quest at a moment’s notice – she’s up for it. But Igraine’s not pig-headed, she learns about true bravery, and that it’s not just about swords and fighting. Cornelia Funke makes us laugh and learn a bit about that too. In fact I might become more chivalrous!
Barry Cunningham, Publisher and Would-be Knight

About the Author

Cornelia Funke

Cornelia Funke is the New York Times bestselling author of the Inkheart trilogy, The Thief Lord and a whole host of popular children’s novels and picture books.

Born in 1958 in the German town of Dorsten, Cornelia initially worked as an illustrator but soon began writing her own stories, quickly establishing a reputation as one of Germany’s best-loved children’s authors.

Her international breakthrough came with the fantasy novel Dragon Rider, which spent 78 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. Success continued with the publication of The Thief Lord, which immediately climbed to the #2 spot on the New York Times bestseller list and stayed there for 19 weeks, selling 1.5 million copies.

Inkheart the movie, starring Brendan Fraser, Helen Mirren and Paul Bettany, was released in 2008.

Reckless marked the start of Funke’s exciting new Mirrorworld series, and was followed by Fearless.

Cornelia Funke now lives in California and is working on several new books.
