The Pimpernel Castle is home to a family of three magicians, a whole lot of mice, a talking cat, and one wanna-be knight: Igraine. My Review. Unfortunately, right from the first page the writing seemed a little off. Not quite what I expected from the expert storyteller that Cornelia Funke is.
Although the book is a nice mix of endearing characters, adventure, and medieval magic, the narrative weighs down the action and somehow removes all tension from the plot. At no point does your pulse quicken or, for even a moment, you fear any of the main characters might be in real danger. This would be an excellence book for advanced readers.
It will expose them to a higher vocabulary, but without the darker, scarier side of upper middle grade fantasy. Overall: Three Stars. Cornelia Funke is an amazing author and the mastermind behind Inkheart but you would never know it from this. While I am very much in favor of her reaching out to a younger set of readers, I feel that she should give her new audience more credit for the sort of content that they want and are ready for.
All of the beautiful dark notes that are interwoven in her books for older readers are gone without a trace in this tale of a spunky girl who intends to be a knight. There are a smattering of things I could nitpick about here, but the chief problem of the book really lies in the fact that it seems untroubled from any real tension, and therefore is not the action-packed adventurous romp that you might expect.
The one real mystery of the book involving the backstory of the Sorrowful Knight is not particularly all that satisfying when it is eventually revealed. An overall fluffy read. On her birthday, her parents accidentally turn themselves into pigs. Igraine shows her courage by setting off on a quest to turn them back. This book really showed how we can reach our dreams and overcome our fears. I love the way that Igraine is persistent in following her dreams.
Even though her dream was against the norm, she was set on accomplishing it. I also really liked the humor in this story; all the characters have wit and have their own distinct personality.
There was magic in this book. A 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 magician. Appropriate for ages This amusing adventure fantasy story is about Igraine, a 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 quest 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 Appealing black and white line drawings and a section that introduces the cast of characters add to the fun. Reviewers were generally enthusiastic. A Library Media Connection review January, was 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.
