Description

A brave little girl learns who the real monsters are in this brilliantly funny original fairy tale from New York Times Best Illustrated Book-winner Bethan Woollvin.

Bo wants to be just like her brothers and capture a fearsome monster, but Bo is small—too small to catch a monster. Or so her brothers say. Luckily, Bo isn't one to take no for an answer, and so she sets off on a quest to catch a monster of her own. Can she defeat the furious griffin, conquer the hideous kraken, and triumph over the monstrous dragon? Or are the real monsters lurking closer than she thinks?

Author-illustrator Bethan Woollvin, creator of the New York Times Best Illustrated Book Little Red, delivers an original fairy tale with a spirited female protagonist, a vibrant medieval backdrop, and a clever twist ending.


Praise For Bo the Brave

"Bo, with her face-filling eyes, resembles Woollvin's other fearless female protagonists; together, they seem to be rewriting the rules one fairy tale at a time." —Publishers Weekly

"Striking. . . [a] winning alternative to the traditional monster-slaying adventure story." —The Horn Book Magazine

★ "A great book to delve into what heroes are made of. Highly recommended for elementary libraries." —School Library Journal, Starred Review

"Magnificent endpapers. . . As always, Woollvin wields a simple yet stunning color palette. . . Bo herself is a headstrong heroine, bearing a bow, net, sword, and, most important, confidence, that young readers will enjoy. A fun and colorful gateway into the world of medieval fantasy." —Booklist
