About the Book

How To Be A Hero---For Boys: Inspiration from Classic Heroes was born out of a passion for classic literature. Since childhood I have read and reread beloved classics and now wish to share ideas with a new generation of young readers who may not have encountered some of these wonderful books yet.

In How To Be a Hero, favorite books such as Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson, The Prince and the Pauper by Mark Twain, Little Men by Louisa May Alcott, and Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen are reviewed. A quote which illustrates each hero’s problem or plight is presented to the reader. Useful suggestions and ideas are offered to help boys on their own journey of becoming a better person and, ultimately, a hero.

By exploring the worlds of these classic heroes and emulating their virtues, young boys will see for themselves what a wonderful adventure their own lives can be.



Q: What was your favorite part of the book?

A:  I enjoyed the fact that it made you look within yourself and to think about ways you can be a better person.

Q:  What are some things that you learned about classic heroes that you want others to know? 

A:  In the case of the Prince and the Pauper, when the prince switched places and was able to look around and really see the state of the world he took steps to make changes.  When he was back in throne he did right by the orphans.  I think everyone can look around and really see things that are not right and make step to make them better.

Q:  How did you feel about the book overall? 

I give it 5 stars because it has good advice on how to be a better person and friend.  There are good lessons within the story that give me things to think about and ways to make myself a better person.  I loved how they talked about classic books.  It made me want to read those books too.  There is a lot of talk about integrity, good judgement, and how to be loyal.  I think these are attributes that all people can work on and if they do the world would be a much nicer place.  Braden "Booknerd Boy"
