Guaranteed to be an instant favorite of your daughter! My review of "The Princess and the Three Knights" by Karen Kingsbury and Gabrielle Grimard

The Princess and the Three Knights

From talented author Karen Kingsbury comes a wonderful story of a King who challenges the knights in the land to win the hand of his precious princess. After enduring tests of their strength and courage, three knights stand poised to win her hand, with only one challenge left to determine the final victor. Each knight must imagine that the princess is on their horse, and race as close as possible to a cliff's edge. However, little do the knights know that what the King really values is the one who will treasure his daughter simply for who God has made her to be. As the final test unfolds before a spellbound crowd, you may be surprised at just who captures the heart of the princess!

My girls absolutely love this story, and we have read it over and over again. They were immediately captivated by the idea of a contest being held to determine who would marry the princess, and were gripped by the suspense of the final challenge. Kingsbury has put her story-telling gift to excellent use, crafting a story that is beautiful to read and will leave you smiling from ear to ear. The illustrations from Grimard are simply gorgeous, and I am not exaggerating when I say that this is one of the most beautiful children's books I have come across in some time. I also couldn't be happier about my children enjoying a book with such a powerful message about the importance of faith and God and the true nature about love, which is patient and kind and always protects. 

I urge you to get this book for your children, as I guarantee that it will be an instant hit. I highly recommend it and award it 5 out of 5 stars.
