If You Liked Disney's Brave, Read This Story!

November 12, 2012

I enjoyed Disney’s movie, Brave. It is released on DVD and Blu-ray on November 13. I love the star, Merida, the warrior-princess type who can ride and shoot better than the boys! Her free spirit is fun to watch, and of course, I wish I had her archery skills!

If Merida left you hungry for another story about a warrior-princess, then you should read The Legend of Lady Ilena by Patricia Malone. This historical fiction novel recounts the tale of a young, warrior girl in England during the time of King Arthur.

The book is written on about a 4th grade reading level, but the writing is good enough that I enjoyed it and I believe other adults would like it as well. It is also a good story for boys or girls. There is mystery and action involved and nothing very "girly."

So, if you liked Merida, make sure you read about Ilena!
