About the Author
Daniel Haack is an Emmy Award winner who's also the author of Prince & Knight and Maiden & Princess. He loves writing stories that are filled with action and adventure (and okay, maybe a little bit of romance, too). He graduated from Ithaca College as a Park Scholar and was a Saul Zaentz Fellow at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. A former Wisconsin farm boy, Daniel currently lives in Los Angeles.
Stevie Lewis has been living on the road for the past two years, furthering her passion for climbing, art, and the outdoors. Striving to live simply and tread lightly on the earth, she gathers inspiration from a variety of adventures, be it climbing in the high desert in central Oregon, hiking in the wilderness of Alaska, or sharing laughs with fellow travelers around a campfire. After years of working in animation, she now illustrates children's books and creates art based on her travels. She is the illustrator of Prince & Knight; Sun! One in a Billion,;Moon! Earth's Best Friend; and Lost in the Library.
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. — Booklist
