Publisher's Summary

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.

Rejected by their princesses and cast out of their castles, Liam, Frederic, Duncan, and Gustav stumble upon an evil plot that could endanger each of their kingdoms. Now it's up to them to triumph over their various shortcomings, take on trolls, bandits, dragons, witches, and other assorted terrors, and become the heroes no one ever thought they could be.

Debut author Christopher Healy takes us on a journey with four imperfect princes and their four improbable princesses, all of whom are trying to become perfect heroes - a fast-paced, funny, and fresh introduction to a world where everything, even our classic fairy tales, is not at all what it seems.

    "Thoroughly enjoyed by, son and I"

    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.

    "Excellent narration!"

    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.

    Story
    "Incredible reading by Bronson Pinchot!"

    Our whole family (Mom, Dad, ten year old son, and eight year old daughter) enjoyed this book! My ten year old son especially liked the humorous interactions between characters, while my daughter liked the strong female characters who follow their conscience rather than a formula.

    The story is clever and provides a unique perspective on many of the traditional fairy tales we're used to hearing.

    The most standout feature, however, is Bronson Pinchot's gifted reading! He gives each character so much life that you forget the book is being read by a single person! It's the best performance I've heard thus far. Bravo!

    "Bronson Pinchot is a genius!"

    I wish I could give Bronson Pinchot's performance a higher rating than 5 Stars! He was absolutely BRILLIANT!!! His regular speaking voice is lovely to listen to, I could listen to him read the phone book and still be enchanted! But then when you add in all the wonderful voices he does for each character, that skyrockets him ahead of the rest! I laughed out loud so many times while listening to this story and many of those times were all due to his crazy voices or laughing or whatever he was doing at that moment. I'm 39 years old and worried at first that this book might be too 'young' for me, but I was pleasantly surprised! It was so much fun to listen to the zany adventures of the 4 princes and princesses, I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it. If you're looking for something fun and lighthearted I definitely recommend this book. I've already bought book 2 and am part way through it. If you're debating reading this book yourself or listening to the audio version, let me suggest that you go with the audio! Bronson doesn't disappoint and I feel you'll seriously be missing out on his comic genius if you chose to read the book instead of going with this version!

    "Totally worth it"

    Really, give this book a try. The performer is out of this world and puts so much effort into everything. Yeah, Duncan can be a bit much but really this looks at so many things in a new way I think anyone would enjoy it given half a chance. I'm giving the next one a try
