The Lovereading4Kids comment
This handsome little book with striking silhouette illustrations, contains a wonderful story about young Tom Trueheart, the youngest of seven brothers, who sets out into the Land of Stories to find out what can possibly have gone wrong for his six older brothers. Each has been sent off on a quest and none returns. Things have gone wrong in the Land of Story so Snow White goes on sleeping and Cinderella still waits with only one shoe. Does little Tom have the courage to become the hero who can bring the stories to an end? A celebration of make believe for all lovers of a good story.
The Secret History of Tom Trueheart - Boy Adventurer by Ian Beck
Tom Trueheart wants to be an adventurer like his six older brothers. They're all employed by the "Story Bureau" to take the lead in any number of thrilling tales - tales which mean they have to rescue red-hooded young ladies or climb outlandishly large beanstalks. Each story is started off by the "Story Bureau" and it's up to the adventurer to make of the story what he will. But this time something's gone wrong - none of the stories are being finished and none of the Trueheart brothers have returned home. Now Tom will get his chance to be a hero - he must set off to the Land of Stories and find out what has happened to his brothers and bring them back.
