When the heroic princess Amira rescues the kind-hearted princess Sadie from her tower prison, neither expects to find a true friend in the bargain.

This book is beyond adorable, I smiled from ear-to-ear while I was reading it. A children's/middle-grade graphic novel about queer princesses falling in love?! I wish I'd had this kind of book when I was a kid.

As a lover of fairy tales, I was excited to pick up a book that pointedly turns the tried and true formula on its head. A princess rescuing a princess? I’m all in. Beautiful artwork and wonderful characters had me reading through this graphic novel at breakneck speed. I loved the relationship between Sadie and Amira. Plus there are dragons and ogres and UNICORNS! A great LGBTQIA+ read for children.

This is a gentle, funny, awesome little book. A Princess decides that she doesn't want to stay home and wait for a Prince to marry, so she embarks on adventures. When she hears another Princess, in a tower of course, screaming for help she comes to the rescue. It turns out the second Princess wasn't screaming but singing (oh...awkward) but the rescue commences. So at its heart, this is a book about female empowerment and same-sex relationships. But it's told with humor and empathy. I have it in our YA section, but it's a fairly simple story and would fit in a Children's section too. It confronts body images, racial diversity, and stereotypes in a subtle (for children) way. I'd highly recommend this title.

Warning: do not read this book if you are opposed to 1) pure happiness, 2) ridiculous cheesy dialogue, or 3) THE POWER OF LOVE.

(Also, dragons. There are dragons.)

Cute story exploding myths of what a Princess might be. It includes matters of self-confidence and jealousy. Generally non-violent. A little name-calling and clear same-sex romance. Passes Bechdel with flying colors. Does not pass either Duvernay or Latif. Still overall a nice story for younger elementary kids.
