Once Upon a Royal Superbaby

Once Upon a Royal Superbaby

By Kevin O’Malley, Carol Heyer, and Scott Goto

Genre: Children

Pages: Hardcover 32 pages
Publisher: Walker Books for Young Readers (August 31, 2010)

For any kid who wondered what happened to the Dude and his fair maiden once they lived happily ever after, the wait is over. When their teacher requests a new story, a boy and a girl once again have different ideas of how it should evolve. Can they agree on the fate of the beautiful queen, the awesome king, and their royal superbaby when they are captured by an evil wizard?

From the team behind Once Upon a Cool Motorcycle Dude---an award-winning favorite among kids and teachers---comes another gender role-defying twist on the average fairy tale, and this time it's a royal superbaby who saves the day.

This book was great. Kylie and I loved reading it. The story is told from two points of view because the children were given a storytelling assignment and they both had their own ideas as to how the story should go. They both had ideas as to how the story should go and in the end they were able to weave their ideas together. The illustrations were individualized for each story and then intertwined for the conclusion, which were wonderfully done. This is a great, easy read and one that we will continue to enjoy in our house and even in my classroom!
