The Charming Prince must find a partner to help him rule, but none of the princesses his parents suggest are the one for him. . . . and then he meets the Knight.

Works as an introduction to LQBTQIA relationships. I especially like that none of the story characters act like it is at all unusual for the Prince and the Knight to fall in love. This is a sweet story, but one star is deducted for occasionally stilted text.

This was so incredibly sweet and fun to read!

I adore this book. It's a fun fairy tale about fighting dragons and falling in love. Very rarely in picture books do you get the perspective of LGBTQIA characters. Usually, the books are about having same sex couples as family members. I do have to take off half a star for occasional awkward rhymes, but that doesn't take away from how happy this made me when I found it!

A Prince is about to take over as ruler in his kingdom, but his parents are concerned that it's a big job to do alone. They want him to find someone who can help him and they can rule the kingdom together. The Prince goes on a journey to find the One, but none of his parents' choices are the best fit. Instead, he maps out his own journey and stumbles into love.

I found this book by chance at the library, and what a great find! This is a charming children's picture story about a prince and a knight who find their happily ever afters together. A great book to introduce children to LGBTQ relationships.

Short and sweet book about finding true love! The beautiful artwork goes along with the beautiful message embedded within the story. Definitely deserves a spot in any book collection.

A sweetly illustrated fairy tale about a prince and his knight in shining armor. I love that they defeat the dragon together, on equal ground, and I love the acceptance shown by the king and queen. The story never touches on the fact that there are people in the world who would fight against his royal match, and I appreciated that. We need more happy LGBTQ+ stories, and lately children's authors are knocking them out of the park!

I loved this sweet story! It is a great way to make LGBTQ relationships more visible and 'normal' for children. The story shows a healthy family relationship with parents who accept their son's sexuality, as does the rest of the community. The illustrations are beautiful - simultaneously classic and modern. My 6 year old enjoyed the story and I think it would be easy to understand for any age child, though perhaps not as interesting for intermediate age children without using it specifically for discussion.

The typical "prince seeks a mate, prince encounters obstacles, prince finds mate" fairy tale is made sweetly new in this bright picture book. The prince meets princesses from around the world, but he knows that none of them are the right person for him. When a brave knight helps him defeat the dragon threatening his people, the prince finally meets his perfect partner. Sexuality and acceptance are navigated without any heavy handedness or overexplanation. A perfect pick for families who like sharing fairy tales, fantastic adventures, and stories of true love in all its beautiful forms.
