Overview

Emily, Brave and Swift by Janice Reynolds

A creak, a shuffle, a slide, a bump,
A rumple, a scrape, a smash, a thump...

What happens when a young girl is awakened in the night by loud, scary noises? If she's Emily, Brave and Swift she gathers her sword, leaps from her over-sized bed and tracks down the beast that has invaded her cozy castle.

Children will love this illustrated, rhyming tale about a daring young girl: Emily, the daughter of Sir Guy, a knight who is always away at battle or jousting or off slaying dragons somewhere and Lady Elena, her absent-minded mum who is busy running the manor and arranging social gatherings, teas and luncheons for the Ladies. How many dragons need slaying? How much tea and crumpets does one person need? I mean, really?

Emily, Brave and Swift blends together 15th century medieval times, some really gross trolls with a rather revolting appetite for...? and a little present day technology that result in a humorous collision of events.

What's in store for Emily? Adventure, a few surprises and who would have thought...a very happy ending!
