The Princess and the Three Knights by Karen Kingsbury–Book Review

This is a typical fairytale for children, dressed up with a bit of Christianity.

The king is in search of the perfect knight to marry his daughter. He must be not just courageous, strong, and loyal — he must also be kind and have a deep faith in God. Only this sort of man would be worthy of the Princess. After a variety of tests, the final three must perform one last feat — and the winner is not the bravest or the most accomplished, but the one who loves the Princess best and will always protect her.

The book begins with a quote from 1 Corinthians:

“Love is patient, love is ind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres, 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

The illustrations by Gabrielle Grimard are charming, and If you’re expectations for the story are not high, you may enjoy it and be able to begin a conversation about kindness with your children

VERDICT: 3 STARS
