19. Igraine the Brave by Cornelia Funke

            This J-level Fiction book meets Igraine just before her 12th birthday.  Igraine lives in a castle with her two wizarding parents and her wizard brother, Albert.  Her parents are working on her birthday present when Bertram, from the neighboring castle, comes with grave news of a new guy in town with nasty plans for stealing her parents singing magic books.  Unfortunately, her mother mistakenly says “swine” instead of “shine” when completing the birthday present.  Now Igraine’s parents are pigs, Osmond the Greedy is coming to besiege the castle, and Albert is the only one who can work magic.   Igraine must leave the castle to help turn her parents back to humans and meets the Sorrowful Knight who escorts her home again.  More antics and crises occur but Igraine cheerfully overcomes them all.
