Book Review: The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom

The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom, written by: Christopher Healy, drawings by : Todd Harris, Walden Pond Press, New York, 2012.
This book was fun.  It is taking the stories of the Prince Charmings, and making fun how Charming is a generic name, and the story telling skips any specifics other than the accomplishments of the women who are saved.  Some of the personalities are not what you would expect.  In this case the Charmings face a mean witch, and a band of robbers headed by a ten year old.
This book is well done.  It does get a bit slow in the middle, but not too slow.  The author makes good use of humor.  This keeps the story moving through the slow parts.  As for a theme I think that would be that their is an importance to having friends, and in working together you can accomplish more.
