Even as a grandmother, I enjoyed reading this modern fairy tale. It would give me language to discuss these issues with my grandchildren should they want to explore non gender specific identities.

I accidentally stumbled across this graphic novel and it's got to be one of my favorite reads of the year. I love the message about being yourself, treasuring your loved ones, and just how it opens the conversation of gender fluidity, love, and acceptance. The art is beautifully done (I may have a crush on the protagonists) and it's a really quick read. Definitely recommend it!

Don't let the cover fool you--this is not your ordinary fairy tale! An awesome story about being yourself. An easy read, it took me just one sitting, and lifted my mood to boot!

I don't often read graphic novels but whenever I had a minute to read, even if I only read a page or two, this was in my hand. Highly recommend! The art was lovely, the story was so well-done and it was a good reminder to be yourself. Always be yourself.

I predict this book will be well-received for its overwhelmingly positive depiction of gender fluidity.
I thought it was interesting how at the end of the book, the author discusses choosing to portray his characters as teens rather than as adults.
The dresses in this book were gorgeous!

What a charming and adorable graphic novel. And I loved that it touched on the concept of being gender fluid. I highly recommend. :)

This graphic novel was amazing and I loved reading it! I think that anyone who enjoys reading about fashion and action will like this book. I do wish that the book was longer and in some parts, I didn't quite understand what happened because there wasn't that much information to explain what was happening. The artwork was just stunning!!👍👍❤️❤️

Some days I look at myself in the mirror and think "That's me, Prince Sebastian! I wear boy clothes and look like my father." Other days it doesn't feel right at all. Those days I feel like I'm actually...a princess.
