Product description

Review

A prince of marriageable age looks far and wide for a partner who sings the same tune. "Handsome and sincere," the prince accompanies his parents to meet ladies from nearby kingdoms. While the royals are away, a fire-breathing dragon ravages their home kingdom. The prince races home to protect his realm only to find a knight in shining armor battling alongside him. The two work together to defeat the dragon, but in the process, the prince loses his grip and nearly falls to his doom. The visored knight sweeps in to catch the prince, takes off his helmet to reveal his identity, and the two instantly realize their connection. Villagers and royals alike cheer for the two men's relationship and, soon, wedding. Lewis' lush colors and dramatic sequencing clearly show her background in animation and lend a timeless, Disney-like quality to the story. The art notably does not shy away from depicting the intimacy between the men, keeping it on par with images of heterosexual relationships that already dominate children's media. Though the royal family is white, the happy villagers and the prince's new betrothed add some necessary racial diversity to the mix. Victorious-it may even usurp King & King (2001) as the premier queer-friendly fairy tale for this age set. (Picture book. 4-8) ― Kirkus Reviews, starred review

K-Gr 2-Haack and Lewis have created a fairy tale in rhyme about a prince who is looking for a partner. The king and queen help their son meet many young ladies in the kingdom, but he is not interested in any of them. After much deliberation, he decides to leave the kingdom to consider his future. While he is gone, a dragon threatens the royal family and villagers. The prince and knight vanquish the dragon and realize they are perfect for one another. The king and queen are so happy their son has found true love. The digital illustrations are rich in color and depth.
This is an illuminating fairy tale for young readers to be able to see that not every prince would like to marry a princess. VERDICT A great addition to any library or classroom, especially where fairy tales are in demand.-April Sanders, Spring Hill College, Mobile, AL ― School Library Journal

5.0 out of 5 stars A fairy tale for modern times
Reviewed in Canada on July 9, 2018
Prince & Knight, a fairy tale for modern times. A dashing and courageous prince searches far and wide for a worthy partner in this lighthearted take on true love. This story has the elements of a classic fairy tale: a charming prince who lives in a land far far away, he fights a fire-breathing dragon, finds his one true love and live happily ever after. His love however, is not the typical damsel in distress; he did not kiss her awake or save her from an evil witch but is a knight in shining armour. This knight, who is equally courageous and handsome as our prince shows that love doesn't have to follow the norm, it just needs to follow the heart. Written by Daniel Haack in rhyme, this book is a fun read and the messages in this LGBTQ friendly story will be easy to understand for young readers.

Stevie Lewis' illustrations are whimsical and cute; aptly chosen for this sensitive story. There is great use of colour for dramatic emphasis throughout. Her illustrations are clean, upbeat and a bit retro. The princesses are painted with different skin tones is a nice plus. Recommended for ages 5+.
