Pennyroyal Academy




Set in the Grimms' fairy-tale world, M. A. Larson's Pennyroyal Academy masterfully combines adventure, humor, and magical mischief. 

Pennyroyal Academy: Seeking bold, courageous youths to become tomorrow's princesses and knights . . . Come one, come all!
A girl from the forest, with no name and no idea why she is there, arrives in a bustling kingdom only to find herself at the center of a world at war. She enlists at Pennyroyal Academy, where princesses and knights are trained to battle the two great menaces of the day: witches and dragons. There, given the name 'Evie,' she must endure a harsh training regimen under the steely glare of her Fairy Drillsergeant, while also navigating an entirely new world of friends and enemies. 
As Evie learns what it truly means to be a princess, she realizes surprising things about herself and her family, about human compassion and inhuman cruelty. And with the witch forces moving nearer, she discovers that the war between princesses and witches is much more personal than she could ever have imagined. 
Set in the Grimms' fairy-tale world, M. A. Larson's Pennyroyal Academy masterfully combines adventure, humor, and magical mischief. 
'M. A. Larson has created a magical world of adventure – a world that shows who princesses truly are: people of character and courage and strength. No one rescues Pennyroyal princesses; they rescue themselves.' Reese Witherspoon
