Prince & KnightBook - 2018
"An illuminating fairy tale for young readers to be able to see that not every prince would like to marry a princess." School Library Journal
"A colorful and entertaining tale exploring sexuality, acceptance, and young love." Booklist
In this modern fairy tale, a noble prince and a brave knight come together to defeat a terrible monster and in the process find true love in a most unexpected place.
"Thank you," he told his parents.
"I appreciate that you tried,
but I'm looking for something special
in a partner by my side."
Once upon a time, in a kingdom far from here, there was a prince in line to take the throne, so his parents set out to find him a kind and worthy bride. The three of them traveled the land far and wide, but the prince didn't quite find what he was looking for in the princesses they met.
While they were away, a terrible dragon threatened their land, and all the soldiers fled. The prince rushed back to save his kingdom from the perilous beast and was met by a brave knight in a suit of brightly shining armor. Together they fought the dragon and discovered that special something the prince was looking for all along. This book is published in partnership with GLAAD to accelerate LGBTQ inclusivity and acceptance.
