The Prince Who was Just Himself by Silke Schnee ~ Review

The Prince Who Was Just Himself
My Review:

Prince Noah is the third son of the King and Queen, he's a little different, but his family loves him just the way he is. When evil comes to the kingdom, will help come from the most unexpected place?

This simple and sweet children's picture book is filled with colorful illustrations and plenty of potential. I liked the beginning of the book, but as a whole I felt that it dropped off kinda abruptly in the end, especially after a more drawn out buildup, even before Noah was born. In my opinion, either the book needed to be shorter or longer.

It has potential, and is a sweet hearted book for children, I think it could help start a conversation if more resources were also available.

Overall, this was a sweet book, well illustrated and well done, yet I feel unable to completely say that I liked it because the ending was just so abrupt, and that was that. I also had many questions about where the princes' parents were during the attack, and why they didn't send an army with them, or Noah's uniqueness aside, let their 5-7 year old son ride into battle? I'm probably over analyzing this way too much, but as a whole this book was underwhelming, but had some great potential.
