The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom ~ Daily feature

8 - 12 3 - 7

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.

About the author
Before delving into Fairy Tale Land to write The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom and its sequel, The Hero's Guide to Storming the Castle, Christopher Healy held numerous other jobs, including actor, ad copywriter, toy store display designer, fact-checker, dishwasher, journalist, costume shop clothing-stitcher, children's entertainment reviewer, and haunted house zombie (though not in that order). He commutes to Fairy Tale Land from his home in New Jersey (not too, too far from where he grew up in New York City), where he lives with his wife, two children, and a dog named Duncan. The Hero's Guide series is his first work of fiction.
