True Heroes: A Treasury of Modern-day Fairy Tales Written by Bestselling Authors
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: April 2016
Duration: 5 hours 27 minutes
An encouraging collection of short stories by bestselling middle-grade authors.
This one-of-a-kind treasury brings together the talents of nearly two dozen bestselling middle-grade authors including Shannon Hale, Brandon Mull, Ally Condie, and Jennifer A. Nielsen-who have created original short stories and modern-day fairy tales, based on the lives and dreams of children they have met who all have two things in common: they have very big hopes and dreams, and they are all cancer patients.
Each short story is prefaced by a brief bio of the child and is accompanied by photographs of the child, fully costumed and digitally inserted into a background-a baker, a dancer, a superhero, a dragon fighter, a sports star, a princess, and more-that makes them the hero of their own modern-day fairy tale story written by one of their favorite authors.
"An inspiring anthology of well-told short stories."-School Library Journal
