About The Book

When modern meets medieval, Kenzie must help a squire get back to the past in this time-traveling fantasy adventure!


Kenzie hates that her family moved to a castle to start a Medieval-themed resort, but all that changes when a time-traveling squire needs Kenzie’s help to get back home to the past! From the best-selling creative team behind DC Superhero Girls, this is a perfect read for fans of Phoebe and her Unicorn, The Baby-Sitter’s Club, or Witches of Brooklyn.

With a strong female protagonist and a diverse cast, KENZIE’S KINGDOM redefines what it means to be a princess. Having extreme social anxiety, Kenzie is finding it difficult to do anything save for the desire to blend into the background and not be seen. KENZIE’S KINGDOM is a coming-of-age story about a teenage girl who steps into her own power to save the day (and a time-traveling squire) – and to claim her own definition of queendom.

The creator-owned KENZIE’S KINGDOM reunites the ORIGINAL creative team of Fontana & Garbowska of the bestselling DC SUPERHERO GIRLS and is the book they are most passionate about.

"The action provides adventure, suspense, and humor. The characters are well-developed and believable. VERDICT: Readers will want Kenzie and Gavin to succeed as they become stronger, more confident versions of themselves" -- Elisabeth LeBrisα -- SLJ (School Library Journal)

Raves and Reviews

The action provides adventure, suspense, and humor. The characters are well-developed and believable, drawn in a modified manga style with only skin tone and hair color differentiating them. VERDICT Readers will want Kenzie and Gavin to succeed as they become stronger, more confident versions of themselves. Give this to fans of "Cleopatra in Space," "The Baby-Sitters Club," "All's Faire in Middle School," and "Zita, the Spacegirl."
