LoveReading View on Igraine The Brave

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.

Igraine The Brave Synopsis

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.

Igraine The Brave Press 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
