Sir Drake the Brave

Oct/2021, 40 Pages, Hardback, 8 x 10

ISBN-13: 9781640654532



The magical story of how a boy with a disability who is bullied finds the hero within.

As Drake gets ready for bed, his mother entertains his questions about tyrants, pirates, and dragons—which are really questions about the power of bullies. Their conversation reminds us all that “Not even kings are allowed to be mean.”

Targeted for young children and their caregivers, Sir Drake the Brave is a declaration of ethics, integrity and faith: that kindness and courage ultimately are stronger than any sort of small-minded bullying or hate. Fun and entertaining, the story teaches lessons of accepting others, and welcoming others, including those who are different.

JOY JORDAN-LAKE is the author of A Tangled Mercy (Editor’s Choice of the Historical Novel Society) and Blue Hole Back Home (2009 Christy Award for Best First Novel and the Common Book selection for several universities). Among her nonfiction books are several exploring faith, racial justice, and adoption. She lives near Nashville, Tennessee with her family.

"A gorgeous and imaginative bedtime book about facing your fears and battling bullies with kindness."—Mike Nawrocki, co-creator of VeggieTales and author of The Dead Sea Squirrels series
