I chose The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom by Christopher Healey from Amazon Vine for review because I like fairy tale retelling and twisted fairy tales. This is the part of the description that convinced me to read this book:
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.

Prince Charming is afraid of little old ladies. Didn't know that, did you?
Friday 56:
"Wait," Frederic said. "This witch - Zaubera -she's pretty powerful, right?"

"She's an old lady," Gustav tossed off. "I'm not afraid of old ladies. Are you?"

"Ones who can pick me up and throw me, yes."
