My 9-Year-Old Is Reading: The Hero’s Guide To Storming The Castle
By Christopher Healy
They’ve done it again! After The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom comes the Storming the Castle edition. The League of Princes is back in this fractured fairy tale to steal a magical sword.
With punchy sidekicks, uptight yet kick-ass princesses, hilarious dialogues and the charm of a well-crafted spoof that doesn’t take itself seriously, this book went with my little girl to bed one night only to reappear read the next morning.
What can I say, was it that good? “Oh yes, and the illustrations are better than for the first,” confided my 9-year old who suggested I read it because the story was great. Until then, I hope your children enjoy this action-packed fantasy.
