"There is so much love in Wang’s illustrations, which are perfectly suited to the fairy tale nature of the book...it’s completely satisfying. In modern fairy tales, there really are happy endings."―
New York Times

"Leave it to such a gifted artist to create this love letter to aesthetic design set against the story of a relationship blossoming between seamstress and prince." ―
Washington Post, from their "10 Best Graphic Novels of 2018"

"Jen Wang’s cartooning is full of warmth and charm." ―
AV Club, from their "10 Most Anticipated Comics of 2018"

"A unique and thoroughly modern fairy tale. . . . a great story about being true to yourself and the kind of companionship you can find when you do." ―
Nerdist

"This graphic novel has all the trappings of a rags-to-riches romance. And it is one―in a joyfully subversive and inclusive way." ―
Horn Book, starred review

"Gorgeously dense artwork, lively sense of movement, effervescent fashions, sweet romance, and heartwarming denouement." ―
Booklist, starred review

"With inviting illustrations and a relatable story line, this tender tale of friendship and identity is sure to delight even readers who aren’t fans of the graphic novel format."―
School Library Journal, starred review

"It’s all but certain to deliver grins, gasps, and some happy tears." ―
Publisher Weekly, starred review

"A visual feast, filled with exuberant charm and delightful characters." ―
VOYA

"For kids who never found a Disney princess costume to fit―literally or figuratively―Wang offers a second chance to claim a fairy tale of one’s own. Readers new, or resistant, to graphic novels will also discover magic here in Wang’s visual storytelling." ―The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
