Summary

Angela Brazil's 'The Fortunes of Philippa' is a captivating coming-of-age novel that follows the adventures of the young protagonist Philippa as she navigates the challenges and triumphs of boarding school life. With a keen eye for detail and a richly descriptive narrative style, Brazil paints a vivid picture of the early 20th-century educational system and the friendships that help Philippa grow and mature. The book's engaging plot and well-developed characters make it a timeless classic in the genre of children's literature. Angela Brazil, known for her pioneering work in girls' school stories, drew inspiration from her own experiences as a teacher and headmistress in crafting 'The Fortunes of Philippa.' Her deep understanding of adolescent psychology and the dynamics of school life shines through in this heartfelt and authentic portrayal of a young girl's journey towards self-discovery. I highly recommend 'The Fortunes of Philippa' to readers looking for a nostalgic and heartwarming tale of friendship, courage, and personal growth. Angela Brazil's masterful storytelling and insightful observations make this book a delightful and engaging read for all ages.

    From two New York Times–bestselling authors, two knighted friends go on a quest with their magical swords to protect their kingdom from evil. 
     
    Odo and Eleanor are excited to be knights. Only . . . nobody’s asking them to go on a quest. So they’re stuck at home, using their trusty and talkative swords to defend their village when there’s cause for defense. But mostly it’s just . . . waiting for something bigger to come along. When that “something bigger” finally comes, Odo, Eleanor, and their swords, Biter and Runnel, are plunged into a quest that will take them (as all good quests must) to unfamiliar lands, where they will fight unseen enemies and unlock unbelievable secrets in order to prevent an unbearable impostor from taking the crown. Also, they will need to keep an eye out for dragons. 
     
    As they did with Have Sword, Will Travel, fantasy masters Garth Nix and Sean Williams have crafted a tale full of fire, laughs, and twists for adventurous readers of all ages.
