Praise For…


“This book is sure to become a classic! It sends an uplifting and powerful message to inspire our children to overcome obstacles, small or large. Lady Lucy has a real life persona that we can all relate to. Parents, you will enjoy reading this aloud to your dumplings. The illustrations are wonderful and imaginative. Spread the word!”
— Cynthia

“I am a library media specialist at an elementary school. This book is on the top of my list in my library. As a teacher, you can use this book to address so many things with your students: following your dreams, courage, survival, and so much more. I really liked how the author used high school students to do the illustrations. This goes on to prove that you can do anything if you are determined, have courage and follow your dreams, just like Lucy!”
— Allyson

“I enjoyed reading Lady Lucy’s Quest. It should give both boys and girls much to think about. I particularly liked the idea that it was illustrated by high school seniors. This collaboration with young people is inspiring. Since the impossibility of girls becoming knights was accepted in the middle ages, no written rules were necessary.

This is not only a book discussing the issue of gender and what can be accomplished if there are no rules written down forbidding something, it also raises questions about the definition of endurance, strength and courage. This book can also be seen as a comment on contemporary politics where women are assuming more of the power that has traditionally been the exclusive right of men.”
— Sally

“With unwavering strength and courage, Lady Lucy defies odds (and surprises everyone) when she uses her ingenuity to become a knight. Told that girls cannot possibly pass the test of Knighthood, Lucy proves all to be wrong in a satisfying story reminiscent of The Paper Bag Princess. Full of girl-power and self-realization, Karen Gross’ story delivers both graceful prose and gorgeous illustrations by Emma Willard School student’s (Shin & Jang) that give this tale an air of timelessness that will allow it to be enjoyed by kids of many ages.”
— Aubrey

“Powerful message for EVERYONE. A modern day fairy-tale. This book inspires children to dream and tells them not to accept less than what they know deep down they are capable of achieving. It is a fun story that holds your attention. Lady Lucy is very likeable and we all can identify with her in some way. Clever and creative story! Highly recommended!”

“A book that will inspire and empower all young children. More than just a children’s book – Lady Lucy will warm your heart and open a great discussion with your children about endurance, strength and courage. Lady Lucy’s quest demonstrates the importance of pursuing one’s dreams and is sure to inspire all children that they CAN achieve what might seem to be the impossible. A great gift!”
