Bo the Brave
Bo has been left behind by her two older brothers, who have gone out monster hunting. Bo wants to catch monsters, too, and so sneaks out of Alpine Castle to go in search of a monster of her own. She meets a variety of creatures that she assumes are monsters due to their strange appearances. She meets a griffin, a kraken, and a baby dragon. But they each, in turn, prove to be too helpful, or nice, or caring to be monsters. So they become Bo’s friends instead. They set off together in search of a real monster. Bo eventually finds some monsters, but they aren’t what she expected.
In Bo the Brave, Bethan Woollvin takes readers on a journey with Bo through the Alpine Kingdom to learn that monsters are defined by how they behave and not by how they look. The illustrations include some fun details. The map of the Alpine Kingdom at the beginning illustrates Bo’s assumptions about the types of monsters she will find. The map shows up again at the end of the book, with some hilarious edits that reflect Bo’s newfound friends.
