This is a charming, clever, and utterly wonderful interpretation of fairy tales. Taking the four “Prince Charming”s from Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, and Rapunzel, this book shows the frustration these four feel at only being remembered as Prince Charming. After all they have names! (Frederick, Duncan, Liam, and Gustav, respectively, in case you were wondering.) This book is easy to adore, and even easier to laugh with (because, to be honest, these princes aren’t very good at what they do). The League of Princes is the best kind of league–unintentionally funny and still just as charming as their nicknames claim them to be.

This book is outstanding. But the character of Duncan (Snow White’s prince) is the best of all. Read it for him and Snow White, if nothing else.

One of my very favorite family read-alouds! With lots of humor, a bit of a mystery & five engaging siblings (not to mention the crotchety neighbor) there’s something for everyone to enjoy in this tale of a life-changing summer. Will generate lively discussion. (Would also make an excellent classroom read-aloud for 4th to 6th grade.)
