Reviews

An Amazon Best Book of the Month!

A finny, funny foray that encourages inclusivity even when it comes to play.
--Kirkus Reviews

The story is overt in its message of self-love, and the digitally rendered artwork is clean and simple with calming washes of ocean blue and scattered bursts of fun color. A wholesome addition to the growing collection of early graphic novels for beginning readers.
--Booklist

"Who gets to be a princess? That's the crux of this firmly inclusive, emotionally generous graphic novel by Chanani. Readers are immersed in an undersea cartoon world where Kitana, a whale shark sporting a seashell-and-starfish crown, is the self-declared 'first shark princess.' Mack worries that [his] dangerous teeth and severe allergies are instant disqualifiers [to be a princess], but it's his realization that expression and identity aren't about rules or permission that make this series starter sparkle."
--Publishers Weekly
