After months of anticipation the baby finally arrived! I’m not much of a royal watcher, probably because my mother was a huge royal watcher, but I know there are lots out there. I received all kinds of product and review requests but it was the cute children’s books that came out that grabbed my attention. To celebrate the excitement with A REAL PRINCE IS HARD TO FIND: A Modern Fairy Tale. With a companion app (which you can download here) this delightfully illustrated picture book sweetly tells the story of how William and Kate grew up, met and eventually married, capturing the hearts of millions worldwide.

We did like the book!
The illustrations are really cute and I think it makes a fantastic bedtime story book. The perfect fairy tale deserves the perfect picture book.

Now, readers can go back in time to see their story from the beginning – a story about a little boy named William who would grow up to be king, and a little girl named Catherine who dreamed of meeting a prince one day…
Follow Will and Kate through their childhood days, their grand wedding, their international travels… and (of course) the arrival of their royal baby. Based on a popular app from Ink Robin, with illustrations by Adam Larkum that bring both the English country-side and the streets of London to life, this delightful picture book will make readers young and old alike fall in love with everyone’s favorite royal couple all over again.
