Read from the Book

On the tallest mountain above the town lived a queen,
the young crown prince,
and the crown kitty.

The queen had ruled for many long years and she was tired of it.
She made up her mind that the prince would marry
and become king before
the end of the summer.


"Wake up!"
called the queen.

"We're going to have a little talk, you and I."

From the Jacket

"Indeed a book whose time has come, this is no pusillanimous bibliotherapy; it is, rather, a joyful celebration that at the same time firmly challenges the assumptions established and perpetuated by the entire canon of children's picture books. Hurrah to newcomers de Haan and Nijland and to the publisher for bringing them to an American audience."
-Starred review, Kirkus Reviews

"Progressive . . . inclusive . . . exuberant collage-flecked art."
-San Francisco Chronicle

"A great book to teach young readers about same-sex couples."
-Philadelphia Gay News

"[A] modern tale of happily-ever-after." -NAPRA Review

About the Author

Writer and illustrator duo Linda de Haan and Stern Nijland met in art school and founded their studio in the dressing rooms of a former public swimming pool, The Papermill. (No, they don''t wear flippers and goggles to work and yes, that is a lifeguard chair.) In addition to being talented artists, Linda and Stern are expert sandcastle builders. This is their first picture book.
