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?
This is my second to last sunshine state book if I don't get it done by tomorrow I'm doomed by ms Mcglothin!:(
Best audiobook I've found
Stumbled across this book on tape at the public library 3 years ago for a trip across the desert with a 7 year old boy and a 10 year old girl. I was riveted for hundreds of miles, as were the kids. Passengers can enjoy the scenery and get lost in a rich tale. Absolutely great story, with a unique and authentic angle to castles and magic. The narrator is so musical and lyrical that her voice alone is compelling. Shocking how little known this story is. Highly recommended.
