A queen wants to her son to take over for her, but she insists he must first marry. She goes on about it in an ugly way until he agrees. She invites "princesses" who perform for him before they are turned away (or turn away in response to his rudeness). One is inexplicably the Princess of Texas, Dolly, who performs stage magic. Anyway, the last princess arrives with her brother, who is immediately betrothed. The princes marry, with the princesses attending, and everyone is happy.

Parts of the plot don't make much sense, sure, but it's a cute story. This might be the first picture book about two princes marrying to enter mainstream publishing, at least in the English language.

The mixed media illustrations are interesting, though in my opinion (shared by my child), rather ugly. The pages of KING & KING look as if a nine year old's craft kit fall all over their board sketches. The colors and details don't quite mix well. However, the fantastical anctics of our favorite character, the crown kitty, adds fun to the scenes. ( )

This book is about a Queen that has ruled for many years and is tired of it. She decides that the Prince must get married immediately. Princesses from far and wide come out to meet the Prince. The Queen and the Prince do not find what they are looking for until a princess shows up with her brother. The Prince immediately falls in love with the handsome young man and they live happily ever after. [return][return]This book has a great alternate ending to the typical fairy tale. It is a fun book that has great illustrations and conveys an important message. This would be a great way to introduce a lesson over underrepresented groups.[return][return]Modern Fantasy[return]Reading Level: 2.9

Yay for more picture books featuring lgbt characters! Nay for the way women were portrayed in this particular book.

This book has been challenged. The book is about a Queen who wants her son to get married. The prince says he has never really liked princesses much. The queen gathers princesses from near and far to meet the prince, but none of them catch his eye. Finally his heart feels a jolt. It is not for a princess though, but for the handsome prince that walks in.The two princes get married and live a happy life. The Queen is also married because her son is finally married. The last page of the book shows the two princes kissing with a big heart over their mouths. This book has been challenged by parents on the grounds that is inappropriate for children and also the kissing page undermines religion. I think this book is fun and light hearted for children. Today same sex marriages are becoming more of a norm and I think it is important for children to see that in the books they read or shows they watch. ( )

In this mischievous twist on the picking-the-princess motif... Silly but affectionate collage illustrations match the text for whimsical irreverence, and the whole thing is so good-natured that only the most determined ideologue will be able to take offense. The political point of the book will of course be lost on most of the traditional picture-book audience, who will probably come to the simple conclusion that the prince likes boys better than girls, which, of course, he does.

We all grew up with this story: a reluctant prince or princess is ordered to marry and rejects one suitor after another. But at last one whom no one else likes wins the royal heart, and the two live happily ever after. ... Their story starts traditionally.... But Princess Madeleine is accompanied by her brother, Prince Lee. And the two princes fall madly in love. What's more, they marry and live happily ever after. ... The illustrations, colorful cut-paper collages, are big and brash. Some characters' open mouths are a bit too brash for my taste, but the pictures are full of fun things to find.... First-time authors Linda de Haan and Stern Nijland met in art school and, according to their publisher, "enjoyed making the book very much and considered working on it one big party." Reading King & King makes one feel as if one has gone to "one big party" as well. And I, for one, had a marvelous time!

Gr 3-5 - In this postmodern fractured fairy tale... the crown prince, who "never cared much for princesses," finally caves in and agrees to wed in order to ascend the throne... 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. ... Originally published in the Netherlands, this is a commendable fledgling effort with good intentions toward its subject matter. Unfortunately, though, the book is hobbled by thin characterization and ugly artwork.... Some of the details in the artwork are interesting, including the "crown kitty" performing antics in the periphery. However, that isn't enough to compensate for page after page of cluttered, disjointed, ill-conceived art. The book does present same-sex marriage as a viable, acceptable way of life within an immediately recognizable narrative form, the fairy tale. However, those looking for picture books about alternative lifestyles may want to keep looking for a barrier-breaking classic on the subject.

[Starred Review] Move over, Princess Smartypants: this Dutch import arrives to take top honors in the fairytale-fracturing department. When the pushy queen of a small, unnamed country decides it’s high time for her son, the prince, to settle down and marry a princess so she can retire... the prince is unmoved until Princess Madeleine shows up with her brother, Prince Lee, and, “It was love at first sight. / ‘What a wonderful prince!’ ” The prince and Prince Lee are duly wed, “And everyone lives happily ever after.” ... Taken all together, the illustrations work wonderfully with the text to make its statement with no apologies whatsoever. ... On the final, wordless page, the happy couple smooch, the actual meeting of lips chastely fig-leafed by a bright red heart. Indeed a book whose time has come, this is no pusillanimous bibliotherapy; it is, rather, a joyful celebration that at the same time firmly challenges the assumptions established and perpetuated by the entire canon of children’s picture books. Hurrah to newcomers de Haan and Nijland and to the publisher for bringing them to an American audience. (Picture book. 5-7)

When a grouchy queen tells her layabout son that it's time for him to marry... Several unsatisfactory bachelorettes visit the castle before "Princess Madeleine and her brother, Prince Lee" appear in the doorway. ... "What a wonderful prince!" he and Prince Lee both exclaim, as a shower of tiny Valentine hearts flutters between them. First-time co-authors and artists de Hann and Nijland matter-of-factly conclude with the royal wedding of "King and King".... Unfortunately, the multimedia collages are cluttered with clashing colors, amorphous paper shapes, scribbles of ink and bleary brushstrokes; the characters' features are indistinct and sometimes ugly. Despite its gleeful disruption of the boy-meets-girl formula, this alterna-tale is not the fairest of them all. For a visually appealing and more nuanced treatment of diversity in general, Kitty Crowther's recent Jack and Jim is a better choice. Ages 6-up.
