Praise for Prince & Knight: "Victorious . . . the premier queer-friendly fairy tale." -Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"An illuminating fairy tale for young readers to be able to see that not every prince would like to marry a princess." -School Library Journal
"A colorful and entertaining tale exploring sexuality, acceptance, and young love." -Booklist
Have you heard the thrilling tale of the prince and his dear knight? Their love for one another inspired everyone in sight.
Our brave and dashing heroes, the prince and the knight, are happily married and their kingdom is prospering, but soon, a fog of darkness that blocks the sun spreads across their land. They get word that the cause of this is a dark and mysterious Shadow King, and they rush off to find and stop him, but encounter many obstacles along the way. Will they be able to restore the light to their kingdom?
With rich colors and cinematic sequences, Lewis' animation-inflected art shines in this fantastical tale. Whereas in the first book knight rescued prince, the reverse happens here-a delightful counterpoint to heteronormative gender roles. . . . Excellent in its positive depiction of queer heroes.
– Kirkus Reviews
The tale is captivating . . . Lewis' pictures charmingly show the couple's love for each other as they hold hands, cup each other's faces, and share a kiss. Another welcome celebration of love for the younger set.
