Twins Alex and Connor fall into the magical book given to them by their grandmother for their 12th birthday.

In Healy’s debut novel the fairy tale bards have made a grave mistake. They called all the princes who saved Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, and Rapunzel all Prince Charming! But Liam, Duncan, Gustav and Frederick are four very different young royals and they band together, intent on reclaiming their names and their rightful place in the tales. Unfortunately theirs aren’t the only
names the bards forgot. The evil witch Zaubera is offended that she was unnamed and so has resorted to increasing acts of nastiness in order to make the fairy tale books – acts that threaten all of the Prince’s kingdoms unless they can do something about it!
