Editorial Reviews

Kingsbury, a bestselling author of adult inspirational fiction, appeals to a young audience in this originalfairy tale with a faith-based message. Deciding that only a knight "who treasured the princess for who shewas on the inside" is worthy of her hand, the king sets up a series of trials for his daughter's would-besuitors, including "essays on loyalty and faith." In the final challenge, the knights must imagine that theyare carrying the princess and race their horses closest to the cliff's edge. Only the third and last nightknight refuses to participate: "I love the princess . . . I wouldn't take her anywhere near that cliff." Even byfairy-tale standards, the king's last test is an odd concept, but it ably illustrates Kingsbury's strongmessage: "True love always protects." Grimard's cheerful, mixed-media artwork adheres closely to fairytaleconventions, starting with the blond, blue-eyed princess, but the bright, attractive scenes will easilyhold children's attention. Families seeking picture books that directly address God and faith will welcomethis offering.
