The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom

Author: Christopher Healy
Publisher: Walden Pond Press
And the princesses lived happily ever after...or did they? Cinderella, who was saved by Prince Frederic, Sleeping Beauty, who is to marry Prince Liam after he saved her, Rapunzel, who was saved by Prince Gustav (or rather he saved her, depending on how you look at it), and Snow White, who was saved by Prince Duncan, are all suddenly fed up with their husbands and husbands-to-be. Frederic, Liam, Gustav, and Duncan, are also fed up–-because in songs that have spread around the country about their princess-saving deeds, they are all know simply as “Prince Charming”. And suddenly the Princes Charming all have to band together to save the princesses, the kingdom–-and maybe even each other, despite their clashing personalities.
The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom would be excellent for boys and girls from about fourth grade to middle school. Readers who like to read fantasy and medieval novels will like this a considerable bit more than readers who don’t. 
The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom is a well-written novel. It blends the classic princess fairy tales with an adventure and comedy filled story of heroes and learning to work with others despite your differences. The fresh and new plot, characters, and settings are stunning and mix with the fairy tales with ease.
