The Hero's Guide to Storming the Castle by Christopher Healy

Prince Liam. Prince Frederic. Prince Duncan. Prince Gustav. You remember them, don't you? They're the Princes Charming who finally got some credit after they stepped out of the shadows of their princesses - Cinderella, Rapunzel, Snow White, and Briar Rose - to defeat an evil witch bent on destroying all their kingdoms.
But alas, such fame and recognition only last so long. And when the princes discover that an object of great power might fall into any number of wrong hands, they are going to have to once again band together to stop it from happening - even if no one will ever know it was they who did it.
Christopher Healy, author of the acclaimed The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom, takes us back to the hilariously fractured fairy-tale world he created for another tale of medieval mischief. Magical gemstones, bladejaw eels, a mysterious Gray Phantom, and two maniacal warlords bent on world domination - it's all in a day's work for the League of Princes.

I loved reading The Hero's Guide to Storming the Castle! The story is exceptionally clever and is a complete twist on the typical "fairytale adventure."

I laughed a lot while reading this book. The story is full of adventure, great battles, lots of good versus evil, and betrayal. The book is a sequel to The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom. which I have not read. I usually do not like reading a sequel if I have not read the first book, but I had no problem getting into and enjoying this one. I highly recommend it for boys and girls ages 8-12.

Thank you to Harpers Collins for this exciting, clever and fun book!

This book hits shelves May of 2013!

Happy reading!
