Wow oh wow, this book is so special, and so lovely, and so dear. This book is a gift to the world. In Prince and the Dressmaker, we meet Prince Sebastian of Paris, who is working hard to uphold a good image for the kingdom with a lot of weight on his shoulders. And part of that weight is his biggest secret: at night, he dresses in stunning gowns and becomes Lady Crystallia, a Parisian icon of fashion and beauty! Not a soul knows Sebastian’s secret, until the palace’s new dressmaker Frances discovers his secret, and the two become best friends, working together to create more and more stunning dresses and looks for Lady Crystallia, until this secret begins to conflict with Frances’ dream of becoming a world-renowned dressmaker... This book is gorgeously drawn and fantastically written, a story of love, friendship, and most of all, being true to yourself. This book is an absolute fairytale!
