About the Book:
Prince Kevin is coming of age, and his mother, Lady Victoria, wants him to marry a “real princess.” She has found the perfect match for Kevin in Dorothy, a local mayor’s daughter. Lady Victoria invites Dorothy’s family to Christmas dinner to introduce her to Kevin. She has a “princess test” all set using peas and mattresses. But on Christmas Eve, a mysterious young woman named Taryn appears at the royal mansion seeking refuge from a surprise snowstorm, and Kevin seems smitten with this new visitor. Will this mysterious young lady upset Lady Victoria’s plans?
This is a brilliant and expertly crafted children’s book. The author blends the unique
mythology of his world with the established lore and legends of ancient Greece and
beyond, incorporating lost worlds and possible creatures thought to be the stuff of myth.
The incorporation of beautifully crafted images to accompany key scenes made this a
well put together read, and the blend of layered storytelling with artfully styled character
development created a narrative that will draw young readers in while giving parents a
new story to bond with their children over. – Tony Espinoza, Hollywood Book Reviews
Author Terry Boucher takes you to the world of fantasy where you get to live in a perfect
world filled with love and good vibes. The characters in the book are kind, warm, and
fun to hang around. Prince Kevin’s family is the ideal family where everyone is
concerned about the welfare of others. Even when wronged, family members have a
way of correcting each other lovingly. While reading the book, I first admired Prince
Kevin and his mother Queen Victoria. The relationship these two had was wonderful, as
one could feel the mother’s love through the author’s text. Prince Kevin was also great
in his way as being kind, understanding, and had a big heart.
Terry Boucher made his characters gentle and charming for young readers. One cannot
help but fall in love with the royal family and the values they have. I enjoyed reading the
book and especially the themes of romance, family, friendship, love, and
disappointment. Terry Boucher is creative and outstanding in her art. The story is
flawless and fascinating through the pages. It is also short which makes it a great book
for readers that enjoy short and sweet stories. Several lessons can be drawn from the
characters; the biggest being love and happiness. To live amicably with others, we
should always stay truthful and forgiving. Being dishonest will only bring wrangles that
can be avoided. This is a great book for young readers who want to learn about family
values and good Christian virtues. – Aaron Washington, Pacific Book Review
