Prince Boghole

About The Book

Through a tale of triumph and true chivalry, Erik Haugaard’s “extraordinary book combines a powerful story, eloquent prose, and exceptionally fine illustrations” (Publishers Weekly).

Determined to find a husband fit for his daughter, King Desmond announces a contest for all of the prince’s interested in his daughter’s hand. The royal gentleman that brings him the finest bird will become the husband of the beautiful and lovely Princess Orla.

The competition for the King’s daughter attracts a multitude of prince’s. Amidst the contestants there is the elegant Prince of Leinster, the fierce Prince of Ulster, and shabby Prince Brian, who all the others mockingly label “Prince Boghole.” Shocking everyone involved, Prince Brian seems to charm the King and Princess much more than all the other’s fighting for her hand in marriage.
