True Heroes

21 Photographs + 21 Best Selling Authors = 1 Unique Book

This one-of-a-kind treasury brings together the talents of nearly two dozen bestselling middle-grade authors who have created original short stories, 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.

"This beautiful volume provides a hopeful antidote that combines fantastical and inspirational pictures with prose designed to engage children's imaginations and remind them that they are full of power, strength, and hope."
               —Richard Paul Evans, #1 New York Times bestselling Author
