Middle Grade Monday features The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom by Christopher Healy. This is book one in The Hero's Guide series and was the author's debut. The story centers around four Princes Charming. They are the anonymous princes from the fairy tales, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White and Rapunzel. Life is not "happily ever after" for these princes. After the hapless lads are thrown out of their castles, they stumble upon a plot that will endanger their kingdom and now it's up to them to save the kingdom! Ms. Kahn highly recommends the audio version of this hysterically funny and inventive tale. It is narrated by Bronson Pinchot, whose range of voices and accents adds dimension.
