Publisher's Summary

Igraine, who turns 12 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?

Fun for Mom and Son

Would you listen to Igraine the Brave again? Why?

I most likely will listen to it again simply because my son has been asking to hear it again! My son said, "Yeah!!! Because I love it so much!"

Who was your favorite character and why?

My son: "Igraine because she was a knight."

Which scene was your favorite?

My son: "It was funny when Albert snapped his fingers and the arrows went backward!"

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

My son: "Happy. I LOVED it!"

Any additional comments?

My 5-year old son and I listened to this book together and talked about it as we went along. It gave us some great topics for discussion. While very simple in its storyline, it was not too juvenile for an adult to enjoy as a light read. At the same time, it was not too heavy, hyper or violent for a young child to enjoy. We hope there will be a sequal!

I loved it. If you like fantasy, it is not bad. As foreign person, some books like Harry Potter is somewhat difficult but it isn't. Go listen it.
