Excellent story for the whole family! My 11 and 13 year old boys were riveted to the story the entire trip. Comedy, adventure and drama all in one extremely well performed narration. The voices and accents were so much fun that we've been imitating them ever since.
It just didn't capture my kids' attention. I thought it was funny, but every time I suggested we put it on, there were collective groans from the kids. Not sure why. I enjoyed it so far, but I bought it for them, so had to return it and try again.
My mom and I just listened to this adorable and well-written book. I'll be looking out for more books by this author, but the reading is phenomenal. This wasn't reading, this was a performance. The way he read the narrative and the voices, and the production with the music and sound effects were great.
We chuckled quite a bit. And there were a few times when we were practically rolling on the floor laughing.
This is a belly full of laughs and no mistake. I swear one of the princes is a Texan! The reader is also a prince of a guy, and elevates a delightful story into a howl.
"The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom" is a funny, light-hearted middle-grade story that delights in twisting the fairy tales it draws on. The characters are interesting and easy to enjoy, and the plot, though slightly meandering, comes together well (though readers should be warned that the last chapter is open-ended enough to allow for sequels).
What might just be a very fun and unapologetically silly children's story, however, has been enhanced by very good narration. Bronson Pinchot has developed distinct and appropriate voices for each character and the narrator, and his characterizations add depth to the characters.
5yr old son and I looked forward to getting in the car as we knew we'd be listening to this wonderful fairy tale mashed up. Bronson's delivery accentuated the playfully clever story with wicked funniness.
Adventurous with awesome twists!
No other books compare. It is unique.
He brings the characters alive and makes you laugh!
Love the twist on the prince and princes' characters!
I love to read!
My son and I enjoyed all of the characters as performed by Bronson Pinchot. He was amazing to listen to! We also enjoyed the story, especially as it was brought to life through this narrator. Highly recommend for fans of modern fairy tales with a twist.
This book was very entertaining and the characters are hilarious. I loved most of the book but some part were confusing, but over all it was very good.
