RICHMOND, VIRGINIA, USA, August 18, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Belle Isle Books of Richmond, Virginia is pleased to announce the upcoming release of a new fantasy book for intermediate readers, Noble, written by Stephanie Parwulski.
Enter a realm where sons tell tales, men tell lies, and old wrongs fester in apathy. Against this backdrop of tyranny and tradition, a young boy seeks to learn how to weave the threads of stories, while others search for a princess who has escaped from the palace walls. In this loving tribute to classic folk tales, readers will learn that fear and misunderstanding can be our toughest masters, but a loving family always finds its own – and things aren’t always what they seem.
It takes more than a title to be noble.
A tale of conventions both honored and broken, reminiscent of Lois Lowry’s The Giver, Noble is slated for September 9, 2022.
Every town in the Ansel Kingdom has a storyteller, a man who weaves threads of magic into stories to share with the men of the community – and only the men, because in Ansel, women are not allowed to to learn how to read.
Elbon does not know why Conteur chose him as an apprentice. After all, he has no family, no friends, and not much talent for hearing the words woven into the colorful threads stretched over Storyteller’s magic harp. Still, Elbon does his best to make his teacher proud. . . even if he doesn’t feel sure he can.
But when Elbon meets a scared boy named Freddie who pretends to be running away from home – and when agents from the royal palace arrive soon after in search of a missing princess – Elbon and his new friend must work together to uncover the secrets that have shaped their lives together. . . and maybe right some old wrongs along the way.
