The Prince and the Dressmaker

Graphic novel by Jen Wang

The Prince and the Dressmaker by: Jen Wang tells a wonderful story about identity and fitting into the norms. This is a graphic novel so readers get to see the story come to life,  through the words and  images. 

This book has a lot of representation from the LGBTQ+ community. The plot is very good following prince Sebastian and his seamstress, Francis. The novel tells their story: from strangers to maybe something more.

The art style gives a whimsical enchanted vibe and is structured very well. The story is very fast paced but follows a good character development. Readers get to watch characters blossom from the scared kids who don’t know who they are into confident young adults.

Overall this is a great read if you’re looking for a happy, fast paced graphic novel. 

I give this a 7/10
