    To escape from a life of petticoats and politeness, Hilary answers a curious advertisement for a pirate crew and suddenly finds herself swept up in a seafaring adventure that may or may not involve a map without an X, a magical treasure that likely doesn't exist, a rogue governess who insists on propriety, a crew of misfit scallywags, and the most treacherous - and unexpected - villain on the High Seas. Will Hilary find the treasure in time? Will she become a true pirate after all? And what will become of the gargoyle?

    What did you love best about Magic Marks the Spot?

    The Narrator was awesome. I loved the quirky characters.


    Have you listened to any of Katherine Kellgren’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Excellent performance. My kids loved listening to the life that she brought to the characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The Gargoyle was my favourite.


    Any additional comments?

    I would highly recommend this book. It was nice have a female character as the lead it a book my son could enjoy and my daughter could aspire to.

    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.

    What did you love best about The Hero's Guide to Storming the Castle?

    The Characters and the voices for the characters


    What does Bronson Pinchot bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Definitely the voices


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    My kids sure did. Everytime I said last chapter for the night, I'd get "AWWWW"

    Prince Liam. Prince Frederic. Prince Duncan. Prince Gustav. You've never heard of them, have you? These are the princes who saved Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Snow White, and Rapunzel, respectively, and yet, thanks to those lousy bards who wrote the tales, you likely know them only as Prince Charming. But all of this is about to change.

    If you could sum up The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom in three words, what would they be?

    Absolutely hilarious. My kids have been quoting this book all week.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    They love Prince Duncan, who seems to have come directly out of "Bill and Ted's excellent adventure".


    Which character – as performed by Bronson Pinchot – was your favorite?

    Bronson Pinchot is an absolute MASTER in this book. So, well done. I loved all his crazy voices.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    My kids would moan and yell when I would turn it off.


    Any additional comments?

    I HIGHLY recommend this book for any kid. I love the way it portrays Princes and Princesses as real people. Great for both my son and my daughter to hear.
