5 Star #Review #Giveaway of Valiant by @fireplusalgebra

Saville despises the bolts of velvet and silk that her father loves- he's always prized them more than he's ever loved her. Yet when he's struck ill, she'll do anything to survive, even donning boys' clothes and begging a commission to sew for the king.

Piecing together a fine coat is far simpler than unknotting court gossip about an army of giants led by a man who cannot be defeated. And they're marching toward Reggen to seize the throne. But Saville knows giants are just stories, and no man is immortal.

Then she meets them, two scouts as tall as trees. She tricks them into leaving, but tales of the daring tailor's triumph quickly spin into impossible feats of giant-slaying. And mere stories won't deter the Duke and his larger-than-life army.

Now only a courageous and clever tailor girl can see beyond the rumors to save the kingdom again.
 
 About the Author

Sarah McGuire loves fairy tales and considers them the best way to step outside everyday life. They're the easiest way, at least: her attempt at seven to reach Narnia through her parents' closet failed.

She lives within sight of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains, where she teaches high school creative writing and math classes with very interesting word problems. During the school year, she lives on coffee, chocolate, and afternoon naps that allow her to write late into the night. During the summer she loves having the extra time to travel and, of course, write.

Valiant is her first novel.


Imaginative and great middle grade book!  

This one will have the kids reading all night long! 

A wonderful retelling of The Valiant Little Tailor,
