Paris, at the dawn of the modern age: Prince Sebastian is looking for a bride--or rather, his parents are looking for one for him. Sebastian is too busy hiding his secret life from everyone. At night he puts on daring dresses and takes Paris by storm as the fabulous Lady Crystallia--the hottest fashion icon in the world capital of fashion! Sebastian's secret weapon (and best friend) is the brilliant dressmaker Frances--one of only two people who know the truth: sometimes this boy wears dresses. But Frances dreams of greatness, and being someone's secret weapon means being a secret. Forever. How long can Frances defer her dreams to protect a friend?

This graphic novel was amazing and I loved reading it! I think that anyone who enjoys reading about fashion and action will like this book. I do wish that the book was longer and in some parts, I didn't quite understand what happened because there wasn't that much information to explain what was happening. The artwork was just stunning!!👍👍❤️❤️

A sweet and light story with a beautiful heart. The art was perfect and gorgeous. My current favorite book of 2018, and there have been a lot of good books this year!

This was not at all what I anticipated, but I loved all of it. The illustrations were beautiful and the story was really moving.

Honestly, I don't know what has moved me more--this delightful graphic novel or all the supportive and loving comments about it here. Cheers to author-artist Jen Wang and cheers to everyone who loved Wang's vivid, heartwarming "The Prince and the Dressmaker" as much I did and do.

Wang leaves Sebastian's happily ever after resolution a bit ambiguous, and as he's a teenager when we meet him perhaps that's as should be. As others have noted, this story works perfectly well as a standalone But I too came to care for Frances and Sebastian so much I'm hoping for a sequel that follows their further challenges and adventures. I'm rooting for them both!
