Your favorite princes and princesses are back in the hilarious and action-packed sequel to the breakout hit The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom by author Christopher Healy, which the New York Times selected as one of its best books of the year.

Prince Liam. Prince Frederic. Prince Duncan. Prince Gustav. You remember them, don't you? They're the Princes Charming, who finally got some credit after they stepped out of the shadows of their princesses—Cinderella, Rapunzel, Snow White, and Briar Rose—to defeat an evil witch bent on destroying all their kingdoms. But alas, such fame and recognition only last so long. And when the princes discover that an object of great power might fall into any number of wrong hands, they are going to have to once again band together to stop it from happening—even if no one will ever know it was they who did it.

                This book is the 2nd in a series. It's about a group of heroes whom you might recognize as characters from some fairy tales. My favorite is Prince Liam, who is not afraid of much, except his horrible fiancee, Sleeping Beauty. In this book, the heroes have to get a magical sword from a 10-year-old villain: the Bandit King. It has the power to give its bearer control over the minds of everyone they see. Obviously he would use it to make the heroes go rogue... which would be bad. There are many funny and adventurous parts of the book, I can't pick a favorite. I would give this book 6 stars- the best! I can't wait to read the next one.
