A Princess, a Pirate, and One Wild Brother - Cornelia Funke

Little Violetta trains in secret to become THE PRINCESS KNIGHT.

Fierce Molly is out to show ferocious Captain Firebeard and his motley crew just who really rules the high seas in PIRATE GIRL.

And brave Ben, THE WILDEST BROTHER, battles moldy green ghosts and slime-belching monsters – until the sun goes down. That's when he seeks the protection of his big sis!

Children everywhere will cheer for the feisty heroes in this happy collection. Meyer's witty artwork and Funke's perfect balance of humor and truth make it a treasury to cherish.
