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

Prince Liam, Prince Frederic, Prince Duncan, and Prince Gustav are back, and they’re just as klutzy and heroic as they were in the first book in this series, The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom. And the ending to this book, which I will not reveal even if you torture me, promises more adventures to come for The League of Princes.

I find these books and the princes and their princesses to be silly, hare-brained, ludicrous, comical, foolish, crackpot, preposterous, and absurd. In short, I used a thesaurus, and the books made me laugh. If you want to go on a Hero’s Guide blog tour and get introduced to all of the heroes and heroines, and even the villains, you can find those links here. Or you could just read the books.

A few choice quotes to whet your appetite:
Prince Gustav: “Today’s lesson is brawling. Everybody start beating up your neighbor.”

Prince Duncan (from his work-in-progress, The Hero’s Guide to Being a Hero): “The element of surprise can offer a hero great advantage in battle. The element of oxygen—also important.”

Prince Frederic: “No one is defined by a single act, whether it was years ago or weeks ago. We’re all given chances to change, to make up for things we’ve done wrong. It’s how we handle those opportunities that really matters. For most of my life, I ran and hid from anything remotely dangerous. Does that make me a coward now? No.”

Prince Liam: “I’m Liam of Erinthia! Getting out of tough situations is what I do best!”
