Publisher's Description

“There was once a princess … the most beautiful in all the land.” The search is on! The king determines to find a young man worthy of the hand of the princess. The knights of the kingdom endure tests and challenges to show their courage and strength. But those qualities alone will not win the king’s approval or the princess’s heart. The right knight must prove his kindness and character . . . And the real meaning of true love.

Author Bio

New York Times best-selling author Karen Kingsbury is America’s favorite inspirational novelist with over 20 million books in print. Her Life-Changing Fiction™ has produced multiple best sellers including Unlocked, Leaving, Take One, Between Sundays, Even Now, One Tuesday Morning, Beyond Tuesday Morning, and Ever After, which was named the 2007 Christian Book of the Year. An award-winning author and newly published songwriter, Karen has several movies optioned for production, and her novel Like Dandelion Dust was made into a major motion picture and is now available on DVD.

She now lives in the Eastern Townships with her chickens, two children, and husband, who is a wood boat builder. They share an old barn as their creative studio.

Editorial Reviews

“Readable and offering a pointed message to young girls about what they should expect of their suitors, there's nothing to dislike in Kingsbury's text, and the illustrations by Gabrielle Grimard are gorgeous. Appropriately fairy tale like and romantic, they are also rich and vivid.”
Kingsbury, a bestselling author of adult inspirational fiction, appeals to a young audience in this original fairy tale with a faith-based message. Deciding that only a knight “who treasured the princess for who she was on the inside” is worthy of her hand, the king sets up a series of trials for his daughter’s would-be suitors, including “essays on loyalty and faith.” In the final challenge, the knights must imagine that they are carrying the princess and race their horses closest to the cliff’s edge. Only the third and last night knight refuses to participate: “I love the princess . . . I wouldn’t take her anywhere near that cliff.” Even by fairy-tale standards, the king’s last test is an odd concept, but it ably illustrates Kingsbury’s strong message: “True love always protects.” Grimard’s cheerful, mixed-media artwork adheres closely to fairytale conventions, starting with the blond, blue-eyed princess, but the bright, attractive scenes will easily hold children’s attention. Families seeking picture books that directly address God and faith will welcome this offering.

    Guaranteed to be an instant hit with your daughter

    From talented author Karen Kingsbury comes a wonderful story of a King who challenges the knights in the land to win the hand of his precious princess. After enduring tests of their strength and courage, three knights stand poised to win her hand, with only one challenge left to determine the final victor. Each knight must imagine that the princess is on their horse, and race as close as possible to a cliff's edge. However, little do the knights know that what the King really values is the one who will treasure his daughter simply for who God has made her to be. As the final test unfolds before a spellbound crowd, you may be surprised at just who captures the heart of the princess!

    My girls absolutely love this story, and we have read it over and over again. They were immediately captivated by the idea of a contest being held to determine who would marry the princess, and were gripped by the suspense of the final challenge. Kingsbury has put her story-telling gift to excellent use, crafting a story that is beautiful to read and will leave you smiling from ear to ear. The illustrations from Grimard are simply gorgeous, and I am not exaggerating when I say that this is one of the most beautiful children's books I have come across in some time. I also couldn't be happier about my children enjoying a book with such a powerful message about the importance of faith and God and the true nature about love, which is patient and kind and always protects.

    I urge you to get this book for your children, as I guarantee that it will be an instant hit. I highly recommend it and award it 5 out of 5 stars.

    Karen Kingsbury not only writes life-changing fiction for adults, but for our children as well in the lovely tale entitled "The Princess and the Three Knights". With beautiful and intricate illustrations by Gabrielle Grimard the story just comes to life. The Princess is a beautiful girl on the outside, again as beautifully demonstrated through the illustrations, as she is on the inside. Her father the king is in search of a knight with a heart as beautiful as that of his daughter and so he arranges a competition to find such a knight. This competition will test the knight to ascertain if he has the right character qualities such as courage, strength and a deep faith in God. In the end the character of the right knight is shown and there is a happily ever after.

    This story starts out with the scripture from 1 Cor.13:4,7 and really highlights the scriptural principle that "Love protects". I really appreciated the author's pointing out that the character and faith of the knight was the most important thing- really good lessons for little girls. As the mother of girls, I think this is important to drive home. I'm sure that you will enjoy reading this beautifull illustrated and well-written book to the special little girl(s) in your life.
