When the king announces a jousting tournament will be held in honor of Violetta’s sixteenth birthday, she dons h [...]

Originally published in German as Der geheimnisvolle Ritter Namenlos (which can be roughly translated as the mysterious knight no-name), Cornelia Funke's clever tale of a little princess, who, after the death of her mother, is taught by her father the same lessons and knightly pursuits he is teaching his sons, is both entertaining and empowering (and a great story for ALL children, not just little girls). Violetta is smaller than her brothers, and like many younger siblings, receives her share o [...]

Fine but predictable story about a princess who proves that she is as good a knight as her brothers.Even more predictably, the story still ends with her (view spoiler)[getting married, although to someone she chooses rather than a knight who wins her hand at the tournament (hide spoiler)].I found it a little odd that so much was made of her being too weak when the kids start training at age five or so; I had thought there was not much difference in muscle development between boys and girls at th [...]

I was reading this book for the Children's Book Picture Book Club for the theme of royalty and I was so into this book! “The Princess Knight” is a children's book by Cornelia Funke along with illustrations by Kerstin Meyer and it is about a young woman named Violetta who ends up competing with the other knights to become the best knight in her father's kingdom. “The Princess Knight” is a truly brilliant book that shows women in a strong light that every child will definitely love for man [...]

I enjoyed this picture book by renowned author Cornelia Funke. Having read her (perhaps overly long and detailed but still lovely) novel Inkheart, I was curious how her style would translate to picture books.By and large, I enjoyed the story. There wasn't really anything "special" in the telling (such as really vibrant word choice or a unique author style) but the story itself was definitely fun and captivating. I love that it's a "strong princess" story without trying to fly in the face of all [...]

Loved it! The story is very sweet and very funny. It’s a shame, though, that these gender themed stories are still even necessary, the “girls can do what boys can do” stories. I even checked the date, hoping this was penned in the 1970s or earlier, but no, the original copyright for the story & pictures is 2001.But, it’s a lovely original fairy tale. The illustrations are amusing and aesthetically pleasing, if taking the context of the story into account. I enjoyed the tale very much [...]

The Princess Knight is a good read for any child and especially a little girl. It shows that girls can do anything that a boy can do. In the case of the little princess, she has the skill to do even better than her brothers and other knights. When the princess was a baby her mother died and the king raised her the only way he knew how, which was to raise her as he had her brothers. The princess was much smaller than her brothers and they often teased her. She trained secretly herself and became [...]

A very cute story of a little princess who is raised to to do all the things that her brothers do like jousting, horseback riding and sword fighting. Violetta is however teased by her brothers because she is smaller and not as strong as they are. She is determined to get better thus sneaks out of the castle each night to practice. In no time, Violetta is jousting and fighting better than her brothers and they begin to tease her less and less. On Violetta's sixteenth birthday her father announces [...]

I actually ended up quite enjoying this book!I'm always a little hesitant that 'strong female character books' will end up being, not so much that, as 'lazy-stupid-classless male books.' Thankfully (even though there was indeed some of that in this book) I felt our princess held her own and made herself a protagonist from her own hard work and dedication.Yes, I would have liked for there to be at least one prince or knight that wasn't so stereotypical, but other than that I didn't really have to [...]

This is a terrific tale about a princess who learns to keep up and even beat the boys, in her own way. She is not as strong or as loud, but she is hard working and determined to be good at what she does. She doesn't come by her talent too easily - there is an illustration of the poor girl's bruises being tended to by her nursemaid. She is persistent, though, and in the end it pays off. We really enjoyed this story and we loved the ending. The illustrations are wonderful and I love that features [...]

Queen Violetta passed when she gave birth to her daughter who would also be named Violetta. Unsure of how to raise a daughter, King Wilfred decides to raise her just as she raised her three older brothers. Initially, due to her size, she faced difficulty in jousting, but perseverance and practice led Violetta to be one of the best jousters around. Much to her disdain, her father decides to hold a jousting tournament once she's sixteen; the winner gets her hand in marriage. Dressing up as a male [...]

When Princess Violetta was born her mother died. Her father didn’t know what to do, so he raised Violetta just like her 3 older brothers. At first her brothers laughed at her because she was too small to lift a sword and fell off her horse. But Violetta was determined and every night she snuck out of the castle and practiced until she was better than her brothers. On her 16th birthday the king decides to hold a jousting tournament and the champion knight will win the princesses hand in marriag [...]

This is a cute story about a king who had a lot of sons, but only one daughter. The queen passed away when the princess was only a baby so she was left to be raised by the king who decided her upbringing would be no different than her brothers.The little princess in this story shows our children that they can achieve whatever goal they desire with a lot of hard work and determination, to not let others bully them into not believing in themself, and that all that hard work might pay off in a big [...]

This delightful children's book is an excellent example of fairy tale setting literature that focuses on female empowerment. As an elementary educator, I'm constantly trying to find literature that embraces diversity and highlights resilient characters. Violet, the princess in our story, faces challenges and an education that is traditionally male focused. Through her journey, she is able to come into her own and make decisions that impact her life. Rather than being told what to do, she bucks t [...]

Well done. Love that canny princess and her rose shield. Funke writes great fairy tales, we all love Igraine the Brave as well. The author blurb (I was looking to see how to pronounce "Funke". Is it "funk-ee" I wonder? that's what we call her at my house because we have a very low threshold for amusing ourselves) describes her as the "German J. K. Rowling", which I can see, but then it got me think how awesome it would be if Rowling also wrote marvelous fairy tales for younger kids.

Reading this book put a smile on my face. I loved how the princess took her future into her own hands and showed that she was a strong person who could make decisions for herself. She proved to be quite capable of making up her own mind. I especially loved the ending, it was a sweet and simple. I would recommend.*Taken from my book reviews blog: reviewsatmse/2009

A book that would have been on my daughter's shelves when she was little had it been around. I especially liked how she learned to improve her skills by teaching herself how to do things her way - and changed her situation through action. A nice offering for girls when the market seems to be flooded with pink and purple fancies and frills.

Princesses can be knights, too.It's cute. Definitely a good message of female empowerment. I'm not sure it would resonate well with boys who read it because of that, but it's more of an answer to traditional fairy tales. It's not saying girls are better than boys, it's just saying that girls shouldn't be treated as property.A king has three sons, who he wants to be better at fighting and jousting than his knights. He has a daughter, but the queen dies in childbirth, so he raises the daughter the [...]

The Princess Knight is about a girl with three brothers. Her mom died when she was born so her dad raises her just like her brothers. She is a lot weaker than them but works secretly at night to become better than them all. Her dad says that they will have a dual to find her a husband. She does not want to have a husband who acts like these knights so she secretly dresses up as a knight and fights for her own hand in marriage.This is a good story for feminism because it shows that boys are not a [...]

"The Princess Knight" by Cornelia Funke was a very empowering tale for females. Violetta, who was raised by her father was taught to do just as her brothers. She learned how to ride horses, joust, and sword fighting. Her brothers often teased her because she was smaller and couldn't fight as hard as them. She was very determined and did not want to be stereotyped as a weak girl so she began practicing her weaknesses every night. Soon, she was better than all 3 of her brothers. She even participa [...]

This is a story about a young princess who wants to be a knight. Her father raised her just like her brothers. When a tournament is planned for men to compete for her hand in marriage, she decides to enter for herself. I like this book. It tells young girls that they can be just like the guys, and can fight for their right to love who they want. I wish this book told more about how the boys treated her as a result of her gender. In addition, it is nice to see how females feel when boys put certa [...]

Sweet and well-written with lovely line art. Ink and watercolor tells the story in simple detail. The story might be slightly wordy but is reminiscent of traditional German fairy tales. Very typical of this author. Strong message of a girl who must overcome ridicule and prejudice by hard work and resourcefulness. Main character chooses her own path. The beginning is funny when the king teaches his boys noisy things. The end breaks from tradition.

the perhaps original storyline to disney´s movie "brave" without the bear complication. 3 sons, 1 daughter, who is given away as a price at a knight´s tournament, only for her to win the right to decide her own fortunes. but there is much more in these few pages, very enjoyable read, especially with a daughter ;) cute drawings by meyer, full of details to discover with your kid.

Here is another story of girl empowerment showing how a princess can be both a knight and a princess. This story is very similar in broad strokes in theme to Disney's Brave. I liked it a lot. Great illustrations.
