Read this one to my not-quite-5yo. I liked the concept more than the execution. Maybe it's the translation? Or maybe it's that the erstwhile girl-knight is still trained by a male knight, who rescues female princesses, from male villains. And all the magical creatures and animals were pretty much all gendered male, unnecessarily IMO. [return][return]But Igraine herself, and her relationship with her older magically adept (mostly) brother, is quite charming. And a lot of the details (like the neighboring noblewoman's penchant for spicy mead) were charming. ( )

I enjoyed this so much more than I expected to. The cover art is really unappealing. I like the British one so much more. Apparently this was originally published in German in 1998 but only just translated. I can see some of my second graders picking this one up after we finish [book: The Castle in the Attic]. ( )

A fast and fun read. Perfect for anyone who enjoys knights, castles, magic,and jousts. The story has lots of quirky characters and spells. I like that Igraine wants to pursue her dreams of becoming a knight even though some people (not her family) tell her it's not for girls.
