Title: HERO AND VILLAIN
Genre: MG Adventure/Humor/Fantasy
Dear Ms. Lapolla,
When twelve year-old writer Mason Grey’s fictional characters come to life and Princess is kidnapped, she must find her muse and help this misfit band of heroes save Princess from an evil doll collector.
First Mason must maintain her sanity as this neurotic cast of characters takes over her home. Hero is constantly dragging his phobic friend, Sidekick, on backyard blunders where Sidekick is on the receiving end of swollen hips and bruised lips. Villain loves Princess and is convinced Mason is trying to poison him. Meanwhile, bible-thumping Gran and her daffodil spray bottle are determined to rid the house of these “abominations” by dousing them with a daily dose of holy water.
With all the commotion, Mason has lost her inspiration to write and it is only when Princess is kidnapped that she picks up her pen again. Along the way, Mason finds out she is not good at writing under pressure and soon horses become wild boars and saving Princess is no fairytale.
