Title: The Prince and the Dressmaker
By: Jen Wang
Call #: YA Graphic Wang. J
In this wonderful new graphic novel, Jen Wang has crafted an engaging fairy tale about a prince who loves to wear dresses and secretly becomes the daringly fabulous Lady Crystallia with the help of his private dressmaker and friend. How does the dressmaker break out of the Prince’s Secret to become the famous designer she’s meant to be? How does the prince handle his parents’ need to find him a wife? And how does the friendship survive all the changes they both need to make?
A graphic novel for those who love the Dress — and anyone who’s working hard to create a life that matches their heart.
Don’t miss this charmer of a story! The Prince and the Dressmaker can appeal to a very wide range of readers — from kids in Upper Elementary all the way through High School; I loved it.
