A Hero is called to the trouble and tells Boo that he has the destiny to become a Hero. Boo is shocked but takes up the challenge to go to the School for Heroes, mainly to try to find his mum. After a very embarrassing first day, he pursues and makes friends with Mug and the mysterious Yesterday, all the while trying his hardest to please Princess Sunbeam Caresse von Pewke. Using their unique talents, the five (four, mainly - the princess seems to always forget something back in her own universe) can overcome even the hardest of challenges.
I liked the humour of this book, and the cleverness of some of the sentences.
There was nothing I disliked, because the whole book was great!
I would rate this book 8 out of 10, because at the start it didn’t really intrigue me much.
I think it would be suitable for 9-12 year olds.
