    THIS IS BEAUTIFUL AND I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT

  • Korrina  (OwlCrate)

    This was exceptional! So heartwarming, and the characters were so lovable. This is definitely a story I’ll read again and again, and recommend to friends.

  • Mackenzi

    This book is the anachronistic 19th century French fairytale meets Project Runway but with cross dressing and deconstruction of gender norms of my dreams.

  • Cori Reed

    LOVE LOVE LOVE

    This was absolutely adorable. You should read it.

  • Chloe ♥ (Blushing Bibliophile)

    I REQUESTED FOR THIS ON NETGALLEY BUT THEY DECLINED. WHEN I RECEIVED THE EMAIL TELLING ME I'VE BEEN SELECTED FOR THE BLOG TOUR I WAS SO HAPPY.

    I had high expectations for this one. And this book totally exceeded them.

    Full review to come :)

    You guys. This was so freaking cute and unexpected! Pick it up.

  • Alexa

    Oh my goodness, y’all, but this book was so wonderful! It gave me a ton of warm + fuzzy feelings as I read it, and I basically just wanted to hug the book, and these characters, by the end of it. I genuinely enjoyed the story, the illustration style and these characters, and would highly recommend checking it out for yourself when it’s out next year!

    This isn’t my favourite illustration style, but it definitely is the best for Jen Wang’s story.

    Their story starts with a dress Frances made for the ball given in the honor of Sebastian, who is the prince. Sebastian likes the dress so much that decides to employ Frances – and have her make dresses for himself.

    They become friends immediately, and live through the ups and downs of friendship, of growing up, of discovering yourself.

    how Frances accepted Sebastian thoroughly and did this withouth a second thought!

    how the issue was handled (in a lot of ways), and how Frances went out and worked hard to make something for herself.

    but Jen Wang doesn’t hit you in the face with them – they’re subtle, little things that you pick up or see while reading the story of Frances and Sebastian.

    It’s definitely something I’d read over and over again when I’m feeling down, and when I want something cute and fun and happy to remind myself hope is a part of life, and there are people who’ll accept me as I am – as Frances did to Sebastian.

    It made me smile and go “aww” a lot, and I’ll end my very short review with this:

    The Prince and the Dressmaker is perfect for fans of the manga Princess Jellyfish and eccentric anime such as Ouran HIghschool Host Club.

    The Prince and the Dressmaker is perfect for fans of the manga Princess Jellyfish and eccentric anime such as Ouran HIghschool Host Club.

    It tells the story of a young prince Sebastian who loves to dress up as a woman known simply as Lady Cristallia. After seeing a young designer's talent, he hires her as his personal seamstress, all while knowing he may be shunned by her and proper society. Together they form an intimate friendship built on trust and acceptance; a message greatly needed in times like ours.

    I had been told this would be a cute read but I was not prepared by the loveliness of the art and the characters. This graphic novel is full of life and flair and it is perfect for kids and adults alike. The art stye is definitely one of my new favorites what with the fluid lines and the beautiful color schemes. The dresses themselves where wonderful and I loved seeing young Frances, quiet and a bit reserved, bloom when it came to designing one of a kind dresses.

    The ending was the best part in my opinion it was both hopeful and triumphant and it made me smile so much. I'm looking forward to more of this author's work!

    I feel like stories like these, that break gender norms and show us a different side of both our lives and history can help future generations accept themselves more easily. Clothes has no gender and in this novel, we get to see that very clearly. What matters is knowing who you are and doing what makes you the happiest.
