The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom

Today's book review goes along really well with my last post.  I've been reading The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom by Christopher Healy...and it is HILARIOUS!  If you are a person who loves to read a new perspective on old tales, this is definitely the book for you. 

The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom (The League of Princes, #1)

This book starts off with a list of things you didn't know about Prince Charming.  For example, he hates wearing capes.  He doesn't know how to use a sword.  AND...his name isn't Charming.  In fact, this book is about four princes who are supposedly named Prince Charming.  Actually, they are named Liam, Frederic, Gustav, and Duncan.  Each of these princes belongs in a fairy tale - Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, and Cinderella.  And each prince is having trouble with his so-called princess. 

The story begins with Prince Frederic and Ella.  Frederic has lived a VERY sheltered life...he doesn't have much sense of adventure.  Each day is the same.  Sleeping in.  Going on picnics.  And Ella is tired of it.  One day, she leaves him a note.  She is sorry, but she has run off to find some adventure.  Frederic realizes that he needs to grow up and go after her.  So begins the story.  Frederic ends up bumping into the other princes who decide to help him on his quest. 

If you like this book, there is also a sequel out now too...The Hero's Guide to Storming the Castle.  I'm looking forward to reading it!
