There are few books in your life that make you laugh, cry, and want to be a better you. This is one of those books. It is a wonderful journey were Erwin finds out that being a true hero is not based on looks or charisma. Its about being honest and always looking for the best in others even when they don't show it. There are amazing characters throughout the story and Margaret Gray puts a unique and humorous twist to medieval tournaments, wicked witches, and happily ever after. This is one of my [...]
A delightful read.The worrisome thing about sequels and prequels is that they'll not only not live up to the original, but will somehow taint the enjoyment of the original. I thoroughly enjoyed this, and now want to read /The Ugly Princess and the Wise Fool/ again.I really like Margaret Gray's narrative voice. So fun to read.
Super simple read. Kind of on the younger audience side of things, but I loved that!It is a fairy tale with some fun twists. I loved the main charachter and that his family was in the candy (particularly caramels) business. This is a great one to read aloud to the kids!
A fresh take on princess life (it's hard being the least beautiful princessyou end up a witch just to be better at SOMEthing!) and heroes (who must attend the Heroic academy). My 6 year old thought it was hysterical.
this book was so funny and clever. It made me think that you should never judge someone just by their appearance whether they are beautiful or not. It was a fast read and even has pictures. I loved it. If you have children who enjoy sitting and listening to stories you must read this to them.
Irwin and his best friend, Seymor have plans on attending the Heroic Academy, but only Seymor is accepted.At the same time, Julia, the youngest princess, feels that girls can also be a True Hero.This story can be read out loud to younger readers.A very funny romantic comedy.
I loved this book. Very funny!! Margaret Gray is an amazing story-teller. How she gave a different take on the fairy-tales and the idea that there is a school to become a hero and that there are too many hero for work to go aroundquite original. Loved the happy ending.
I read this book for my R.S. bookclub, which I never before have participated in. It was a simple and enjoyable book, a great one to read out loud to young kids as a bedtime story or something. A great choice if you need something simple.
I loved it! It was clearly written for children, but the play on the classic fairy-tale is clever enough that adults might enjoy it as well.
Cute story with a good meaning!
this is a prequel to the ugly princess and the wise fool. i liked both of these stories. they weren’t outstanding, but they did a good job of rooting for the geeky underdog.
