Horn Book Review

One dark night, stealthy invaders abduct a young prince while his parents are away. The invaders, however, are no match for the determined prince and his loyal subjects. Eye-catching digital compositions with dynamic perspectives, brilliant chiaroscuro, and expert use of color amplify the story's drama; see, for example, the spreads on which hordes of citizens wearing red hide their red-pajama-clad prince in plain sight.
