Bo the Brave by Bethan Woolvin
Woolvin has done it again. Incorporating traditional fairy tale elements, she has created a marvelous little story with the unique plot twist that readers have come to expect from this talented picture book author.
Bo lives in the Alpine Kingdom filled with slimy sea monsters, scary cave beasts, and horrid forest monsters. When her older brothers set off to catch a monster, Bo begs to come too.
The boys tell her no. "You're far too little."
Armed with her bow and arrow, she sneaks out of the castle, in search of a monster to slay. Readers can follow Bo's travels with the map featured on the end papers
She encounters some strange and possibly fearsome creatures: a Griffin, a Kraken, and a dragon. However, each responds to Bo with kindness and concern.
