In the spirit of DRAGON RIDER and THE THIEF LORD, an enchanting fairy tale told with Cornelia's trademark warmth and wit: Perfect Funke fare for readers in the middle grades--Cornelia's "sweet spot"!

Igraine dreams of becoming a famous knight just like her great grandfather, but the truth is, life at the family castle is rather boring. Until the nephew of the baroness-next-door shows up. He's got a dastardly plan to capture the castle and claim as his own the wonderful singing spell books that belong to Igraine's magician parents. To make matters worse, at the very moment of the siege, her mom and dad botch a spell, turning themselves into pigs! Aided by a Gentle Giant and a Sorrowful Knight, it's up to Igraine to be brave and save the day--and the books!

Reader reviewed by Claire

This book is about a young girl named Igraine. She would like to be a knight more than anything else. Her parents have had a magical mishap and accidentaly turned themselves into pigs. The castle Igraine lives at is under attack at the same time. The spell to turn Igraine's parents back into humans will shut down the castle's magical defences for awhile. Will there be enough time?

I thought this book was O.K. It was a quick read by an awesome author. I would recommend it to younger kids who like funny fantasy boos that are not serious.
