Horn Book Review

And they're back! Having vanquished a nasty witch to save their various realms in The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom (rev. 7/12), princes Liam, Frederic, Duncan, and Gustav are preoccupied with family and fame when a new adventure beckons. Blackmailed by the questionable Briar Rose, the League of Princes reassembles and, along with Briar, Cinderella, Snow White, Rapunzel, and Liam's sister Lila, head off to steal a mystical object of great power held by the diminutive Bandit King in his well-fortified castle. Challenging as that may be, the introduction of Lord Rundark, an evil warlord with nefarious plans of his own, raises the stakes significantly. Filled with witty banter, new and amusing characters, much seat-of-your-pants action, cartoony illustrations, and more clever references to fairy-tale tropes, this hefty installment is certain to keep fans of the first book happily entertained and, since it ends with a significant cliffhanger, eager for more. monica edinger (c) Copyright 2013.
