GLAAD and Bonnier Publishing USA have teamed up to create a children’s book that’s just in time for tomorrow’s royal wedding. While Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may be the ones tying the knot in England, a prince and a knight are two lovers in the appropriately named, Prince & Knight.
The charming tale is written by Daniel Haack and illustrated by Stevie Lewis.
According to GLAAD, Prince & Knight “tells the tale of a noble prince who is in line to take the throne. Together with his parents, they search the land far and wide to find a worthy bride, but the prince doesn’t find what he is looking for in the princesses they meet. While away, a terrible dragon threatens their land, so the prince rushes back to save his kingdom where he is met by a brave knight. Together they defeat the dragon, and find love in the process.”
Sounds adorable, right? But the story’s cuteness isn’t the most important part.
“Children need to identify with the characters they’re reading about. The importance of children recognizing themselves, their family, and their friends in media cannot be overstated. We strive to create stories that not only empower, but ensure that no child feels invisible.”
