Book Nook: Lady Lucy's Quest

My daughters have very definite interests. My older one loves dragons and helping people; my younger one loves ninjas and superheroes. Both of them enjoyed the story behind Lady Lucy's Quest, a very non-traditional fairy-tale type book that I recently got to review.

Lady Lucy wants to be a night. But girls can't be knights! Still, she's given a chance, and has to prove herself through three quests. She comes up with very nontraditional ways to solve each, with a twist that is quite unexpected.

The story behind the book is also great. Not only is it an inspiring story for all readers, especially girls, but the author chose two high school seniors to do the wonderful illustrations, supporting some young talent.

Karen Gross is a lifelong teacher/professor, and former Senior Policy Advisor at the U.S. Department of Education. She is passionate about student learning and empowerment, and hopes this new book will inspire kids across the country that they can achieve what seems to be impossible. She herself is living proof of that!
