Thud and Blunder

The Not-so-Helpless Princess

by Blake Hoena
Illustrated by Pol Cunyat

Blunder is convinced that he and Thud have to save a princess if they want to become True Heroes. Unfortunately, princesses in distress are in short supply in Village Town, so the two nine-year-old knights journey to Castle Kidnapt to hire one. Upon arrival, they find out that the only princess available for saving is a five-year-old girl with a thirst for adventure. Can Thud and Blunder keep up with Princess Punch, or will they end up being the ones in need of saving? These early chapter books are guaranteed to engage readers’ critical thinking skills. Each book also includes writing prompts, discussion questions, and a glossary.

Imagination Soup - Melissa Taylor

"This is a funny, defying stereotypes book about a strong girl warrior named Thud and her good fighting companion, Blunder. They’re latest quest is to save a princess but as you can guess from the title, this is one princess who does not need any help. In fact the ogres are terrified of HER." - Imagination Soup

Kids' Book Buzz/San Francisco Book Review - Nishaant, age 8

"I like the illustrations. I like Thud’s face. The best picture is the Royal Senses. They look strange. The Royal Senses were fun. . . .I like the story questions best. If I were in battle, I’d want to fight next to the princess." - Kids' Book Buzz/San Francisco Book Review
