    I loved it It was very readable or er listenable and I enjoyed the fact that the heroine was a female knight I will definitely be reading this to my daughters when they get to be around 8 or 9 This was my first exposure to Funke and I think I will go check out some of her stuff nowAddendum To heck with 8 or 9 They are 35 and 45 and we started reading it together today The oldest didn't want me to stop Addendum 2 It was a little rough with the 35 year old I'll be honest; I completely lost her through large chunks of the novel The 45 year old also struggled but with some explaining I think she thoroughly enjoyed it

    Anyone mourning the lack of beautiful dark notes obviously doesn't get what this book is not a dark meaningful and perhaps even pretentious because Funke CAN get pretentious young adult work but a fun rollicking read that kids will ENJOY And isn't that what matters in a good kids book?

    The reason why I was able to read this book is kind of a funny one I was complaining to a friend of mine that I had read all of the TOP 10 most popular books of Cornelia Funke on Goodreads as one does right? except for Igraine Ohnefurcht and that that really bothered me because I hadn't even heard of the book before as a long time fan of Funke I was disappointed in myself D Then out of the blue my friend asked me if I wanted to have her old copy as she has no sentimental value attached to it and here we are two days have passed and now I'm finally in on the mystery of Igraine Ohnefurcht It was a fun little children's tale with a good mixture between adventure and heartfelt moments I liked the fact that Igraine was such a strong heroine However I still noted some fatshaming in regards to the character of Bertram I really don't understand why Funke keeps stereotyping her characters in that way always linking fatness with clumsiness It's so unnecessary Also little Albert is just my bae His fancy entrance at the end had me shook #proudmom

    I really enjoyed Cornelia Funke's other books so I was looking forward to sitting down with this one Unfortunately while it's generally a fun non threateningly uirky read it's also one of Ms Funke's weakest offerings to date Which is not to say that young girls interested in becoming sword wielding defenders of righteousness should not totally devour this book; they should and they should also practice fencing and being chivalrous and generally figuring out how not to be a uiet demure scrap of traditional femininity Props to Funke for adding to the budding feminist canon but I'd like to see a little oomph in her next one

    A girl who aspires to be a knight must save her magician parents who have accidentally turned into pigs and defend her castle against an evil magicianAppropriate for ages 9 13This amusing adventure fantasy story is about Igraine a 12 year old princess who aspires to be a knight and who lives with her magician parents in a a castle guarded by roaring stone lions and fire breathing gargoyles When her parents accidentally turn themselves into pigs on her birthday and an evil magician is poised to invade their castle Igraine must save them by going on a uest to gather hairs from a red headed giant which are the missing ingredient in the potion they need to return to their human form Along the way she meets the Sorrowful Knight who teaches her about swordfighting and chivalry; together they ride home to confront the magician Filled with imaginative and comical details this story with a plucky female heroine is a great read for girls This not scary so it is appropriate for younger readers in grades 3 5 Appealing black and white line drawings and a section that introduces the cast of characters add to the funReviewers were generally enthusiastic A Publisher's Weekly review from 9102007 described and praised the book and drawings; the reviewer also recommended the book as a read aloud story because of an abundance of action and humor A Library Media Connection review January 2008was the only one which was somewhat critical the reviewer thought that some of the characters were stereotyped and parts of the story were predictable I think children would be bothered by any of this and the characters were not stereotypical in any way that would be harmful to children

    Drat it Today of all days I have to be wearing skirts I thought this story was delightful I like Funke's illustrations too which are uite whimsicalPerhaps because I grew up in Germany and read German books I find this one just as delightful as her other books My favourite book of her's so far is Dragon Rider and I want to re read it so I can read the 2nd in that series Plus I would love to get into Inkheart as wellIn Ingraine the Brave German Igraine Ohnefurcht the things I liked the most were the Singing Books the enchantments of the small castle and Sisyphus who's Igraine's tomcat

    I'm working my way through a list of books that were suggested to counter the fainting princess narrative for girls; in other words I'm reading some books with active heroines looking for some to read to Rose Pink or have her read later that will hopefully invite her to strength and decision rather than passively waiting for someone to rescue herRight So this is one of those books and I really enjoyed it Igraine faces fear and does what's necessary to save her parents and home At the same time it was a very safe book because nothing truly irreversibly bad happens My daughter is after all only six Let's save real heartache for later It's below YA level so perfect for reading to her right now

    Igraine is a twelve year old girl who longs to be a knight and have adventures But her life is unexciting Until her birthday when her parents magicians are turned into pigs by accidental magic and their castle comes under siege by Osmund the Greedy Igraine must use her wits and chivalrous code to save her parents and the castle with some help from friendsWe read this book as a family and my kids 5 8 LOVED it Really loved it I don't remember the last time they got ready for bed so fast each night Fun as a one time read for me but definitely a keeper for the kid appeal

    Twelve year old Igraine’s magician parents have accidentally turned themselves into pigs and will remain powerless until they receive the hairs of a giant to create a reversing spell Compounding the problem is Osmund the Greedy who has come to Pimpernel Castle demanding the magical singing books that belong to Igraine’s family Plucky Igraine who wants to be a knight faces danger as she rides alone to the home of a giant befriends a Sorrowful Knight fends off Osmund’s soldiers and all to save her home and her family The adventure is fast paced and light hearted with bits of humor never too frightening and completely entertaining from start to finish Colorful characters abound from pernickety cat Sisyphus to Igraine’s piggy parents and the honorable giant Garleff The colorful cover communicates the story’s energy and Funke’s freuent lively line drawings add to the fun This is an excellent choice for readers in grades 3 6
