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.

    Light and very fun...an enjoyable listen with great narration and relatable characters. The classic tales are dropped on their heads.

    "Narrator amazing, story so clever and funny"

    We absolutely loved this story so much. And the narrator is absolutely phenomenal. Just such a wonderful story to share with my boys. From my boys- Gustaf, Frederick, Duncan, and Liam are the funniest characters of all time. I can't wait until you hear the evil zabera's crackly laugh. This was one of the best stories I ever heard. Thank you for all the hard work you put into it.

    Story
    "Take A Long Drive & Laugh With Your Children."

    Anyone, I repeat anyone, telling a story can get a laugh by using foul language & sex jokes. Only a talented person can get those laughs without resorting to foul language & sex jokes. This book is a rare find: something I & my children can listen to & laugh along with. No embarassing moments when the sex & dirty words start flowing. It takes skill to make a person laugh using clean humor & this book does just that.
    The spin on the traditional fairy tale characters is original &, while the story is fairly predictable, that should be expected. The main characters that most readers are familiar with & few would expect shocking twists. The fun is in how the story is told.
    While I'm sure it would be a fun read, I believe this book shines in audio format. Bronson Pinchot does a top notch job with a plethora of accents & voices. High pitch, low pitch & everything in between is executed perfectly. Scottish, English, Germanic, all equally stellar. I particularly enjoyed the voice of the giant. I don't know of any other single narrator who could have done justice to all the many different characters in this story. It was like having a one man ensemble cast perform this book.
    Do yourself a favor: buy this audio book, leave your cell phones at home, take your children out on a long drive & enjoy some quality family time away from any distractions, and laugh with your children before they grow up so quickly.

    "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.
