Saville, the daughter of a tailor, has no desire to follow in her father’s footsteps. Unfortunately, though when her dad becomes ill, she must do whatever necessary to care for her ailing protege. Her only solution is to dress as a boy, so she can gain a commission to be the king’s tailor. But when Saville unwittingly saves the kingdom from giants the King offers his sister’s hand in marriage to her. Author Sarah McGuire has crafted a lovely reimagining of the beloved tale, The Brave Little Tailor. This book is beautifully crafted with a subtle eloquence that won’t soon be forgotten. A strong female protagonist, evil villains, and delightfully enchanting plots and sub-plots help make this book a real page-turner. Recommended for home and school libraries, Valiant has earned the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.
