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 kings approval or the princesss heart. The right knight must prove his kindness and character . . . And the real meaning of true love.
Karen Kingsbury, #1 New York Times bestselling novelist, is Americas favorite inspirational storyteller, with more than twenty-five million copies of her award-winning books in print. Her last dozen titles have topped bestseller lists and many of her novels are under development as major motion pictures. Her Baxter Family books have been developed into a TV series now available everywhere. Karen is also an adjunct professor of writing at Liberty University. In 2001 she and her husband, Don, adopted three boys from Haiti, doubling their family in a matter of months. Today the couple has joined the ranks of empty nesters, living in Tennessee near four of their adult children.
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 daughters 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 cliffs edge. Only the third and last night knight refuses to participate: I love the princess . . . I wouldnt take her anywhere near that cliff. Even by fairy-tale standards, the kings last test is an odd concept, but it ably illustrates Kingsburys strong message: True love always protects. Grimards cheerful, mixed-media artwork adheres closely to fairytale conventions, starting with the blond, blue-eyed princess, but the bright, attractive scenes will easily hold childrens attention. Families seeking picture books that directly address God and faith will welcome this offering. -- Gillian Engberg, BOOKLIST
