" Sebastian’s secret weapon (and best friend) is the brilliant dressmaker Frances—one of only two people who know the truth: sometimes this boy wears dresses. But Frances dreams of greatness, and being someone’s secret weapon means being a secret. Forever. How long can Frances defer her dreams to protect a friend? Jen Wang weaves an exuberantly romantic tale of identity, young love, art, and family. A fairy tale for any age, The Prince and the Dressmaker will steal your heart. " said.

"This is so cute! However it is so simple.

This is a gorgeously illustrated tale of a young prince who leads a double life as Lady Crystalia and his seamstress. The story is about finding who you are as a person and accepting it.

The plot is exactly what you’d expect from an animated movie or cartoon with a bit of project runway on the side. It is about acceptance and it is cute, brief and to the point. Too me it was a bit too simple.

The illustrations are wonderful. Big colorful pages. Amazing dress design.

It just felt really young. This is listed as YA but I think middle grades might be more appropriate.

Super cute I’d love to check out more works by the artist/author.

Una historia muy tierna y fácil de leer. Innovadora y cliché al mismo tiempo.

Retrata la historia de Frances, una joven costurera que sueña en convertirse en una famosa diseñadora. Un día crea un vestido tan “escandaloso” que llega oídos del Príncipe, que la contrata par que trabaje para él.

El príncipe Sebastián, tiene un pequeño secreto, le gusta usar vestidos. Para poder utilizarlos crea un alter ego llamado Lady Crystallia.

Es maravillosos ver a Sebastián pasar de ser el tímido Príncipe, a convertirse en una chica confidente llena de estilo y personalidad.

Obviamente Frances y Sebastián se enamoran, y enfrentan los problemas sociales que conlleva que un Príncipe disfrute utilizar ropa de mujer.

Una historia fácil de llevar, con un arte precioso, y que esconde muchos mensajes entre líneas, super recomendable." said.

" I might get to read this one. A family member went to an author event and got a signed copy this week--I was allowed to look and sniff it, not touch. And, I'll tell you, that color ink makes the "new book" smell completely different. Very pungent. Word was that the illustrator worked on Adventure Time so it was a big deal and a group of them went to meet and greet. Who am I kidding. The library or nothing. I never got to touch the signed Fight Club, either. " said.

"To be honest, I had no idea what this was about. I saw it in a couple of book hauls and I really liked the cover so I thought I would give it a chance.
This was super cute. I loved Frances and her designs were incredible! The premise of this graphic novel was that a prince liked wearing dresses and needed a designer to make him amazing pieces. The story really bloomed from there. It was a nice fluffy read that I inhaled in about a hour. I am so happy I gave this book a chance! It was everything I needed it to be and more.

" The graphic novel about a prince that hires a dressmaker to make him dresses to wear is SO DAMN CUTE. It was so uplifting and positive and really cute. " said.

" Wonderful <3CW: fear of transphobia, Prince Sebastian is outed against his will, people don’t take it well at first. (But everyone comes around and what happens next is magnificent.) " said.

"5 Stars for this graphic novel, art & story by Jen Wang. I loved the art. So well done.

I also loved the story that takes place in the late 1900s, Paris. Sixteen yr old Crown Prince Sebastian of Belgium has a secret - he likes to dress in women’s clothes. He finds a young talented seamstress, Frances who agrees to design for him and to keep his secret. Together they become close friends and known about the city, he as Lady Crystallia and her for the fabulous, unique dresses she designs for him. But to keep Sebastian’s secret also means putting aside Frances’s dreams of finding success as a designer. Also complicating Sebastian’s life - his parents are eager for him to become betrothed and are introducing him to prospective Princesses.

A sweet story of love, friendship and acceptance. Highly recommended.
