I grew up in England around castles reading the Song of the Lioness Quartet by Tamora Pierce. The story is about Alanna of Trebond who disguises herself as a boy so she can train to be a knight. Because of those books I've pretended to be a knight with red hair and violet eyes.
I recently found out that the author Tamora Pierce has written many more books about the realm of Tortal. Over the past year I read the winning Caldecott books, so my treat to myself for 2011 is to read all of Pierce's books.
Song of the Lioness Quartet are on my book list for 2010. I ran through them in less than two weeks. I've reread them so many times- I adore them!
