LGBTQ Children’s Books To Keep On Your Radar
KING AND KING by Linda de Haan and Stern Jijland

From School Library Journal
Grades 3-5—In this postmodern fractured fairy tale, a worn-out and  badly beleaguered Queen is ready for retirement. After many hours of  nagging, the crown prince, who “never cared much for princesses,”  finally caves in and agrees to wed in order to ascend the throne. Their  search for a suitable bride extends far and wide, but none of the  eligible princesses strikes the Prince’s fancy, until Princess Madeleine  shows up. The Prince is immediately smitten- with her brother, Prince  Lee. The wedding is “very special,” the Queen settles down on a chaise  lounge in the sun, and everyone lives happily ever after. Originally  published in the Netherlands, this is a commendable fledgling effort  with good intentions toward its subject matter. —Catherine Threadgill, Charleston County Public Library, SC
