Review:
British actress, Xanthe Elbrick, a Tony Award nominee, performs a lively narrative of Cornelia Funke's humorous, action-packed tall tale about a 12-year-old girl who is determined to become a knight, rather than take up the family trade: her parents and brother are magicians. Igraine tests her knightly mettle when Osmund the Greedy and a wicked knight lay siege to her parents' castle in order to steal their talking magic spell books. Unfortunately, her parents have accidentally turned themselves into pigs, so it's up to Igraine to save the day.
