Review

I LOVE this series!!! I always forget how much it makes me laugh, and I can not believe I haven’t already put it up on Young Llama!?!?! (I was seriously confused why I hadn’t… This is such a good book. My sister even wants to read it!!!)

The book is about the Prince Charmings (Or Prince’s Charming) in the fairy tales. And they are not happy about the fact that the princesses get all the attention and not them. They don’t even get their names mentioned. So they go off to fight a witch, save a princess, and rescue the minstrels (dudes who sing) who were kidnapped, to get their names out there!

The book is soooooo funny, and very clean! Yes there is magic, and yes the witch is pretty evil (and the pictures in the book make her look pretty bad!) but it is not creepy-bad-dark-evil-magic… More like, evil witch in a good fairy tale, has to be stopped!…Magic.

Over all, I TOTALLY suggest this book to kids and teens RIGHT NOW!!!! It is the perfect book for 7 through 18 year olds and is soooooooo funny!!! I also think this book would be great for some boys, but there is some romance in the book, so maybe not teen boys. I hope you all have a great day and stay healthy!!! -The Young Llama Reader.

Pros

  • A hilarious adventure for anyone to read!!!!
  • Very clean and kid-friendly!!!
  • Magical and funny!!!!!!

Cons

  • Some violence and magic

Prince Liam. Prince Frederic. Prince Duncan. Prince Gustav. You’ve never heard of them, have you? These are the princes who saved Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Snow White, and Rapunzel, respectively, and yet, thanks to those lousy bards who wrote the tales, you likely know them only as Prince Charming. But all of this is about to change.

Rejected by their princesses and cast out of their castles, the princes stumble upon an evil plot that could endanger each of their kingdoms. Now it’s up to them to triumph over their various shortcomings, take on trolls, bandits, dragons, witches, and other assorted terrors, and become the heroes no one ever thought they could be.

Christopher Healy’s Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom is a completely original take on the world of fairy tales, the truth about what happens after “happily ever after.” It’s a must-have for middle grade readers who enjoy their fantasy adventures mixed with the humor of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. Witty black-and-white drawings by Todd Harris add to the fun.
