Summary: " ... a charming fable with an effective fairy-tale cadence; the king's struggles ... echo the real-life difficulties of adoption, surrogacy, and similar steps towards creating a family. Adoptees should appreciate how desired the baby is, and Philip's and Don Carlos' mutual affection remains touching. The Arthur Rackham-like images in lavender-blue tones by debut illustrator Trotter are a gorgeous, striking plus, beautifully detailed with flower, bird, vine, and fruit motifs. Sweet characters, skillful storytelling, and knockout illustrations."--Page 4 of cover.
