Summary
For every parent tired of telling their kids to PLEASE JUST GET ALONG, this hilarious and imaginative new picture book--from the beloved creators of Babymouse--is here to help. Sort of.

Meet the Evil Princess and the Brave Knight. She casts terrible spells, while he fights dragons. He rescues cats in distress, while she makes mischief. No wonder there isn't much peace in this kingdom! But is the Evil Princess really so evil? And is the Brave Knight truly as chivalrous as he seems? Children and parents will laugh at seeing familiar family dynamics play out in this charming and imaginative new story.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In this domestic take on a medieval castle, two siblings exemplify their titles of Evil Princess and Brave Knight. He, with sword and armor, protects the castle, while she, in cape and crown, actively spites him. After the Evil Princess trips the Brave Knight as he patrols the corridors, the Magic Mirror a clever parental stand-in sends them both to their rooms. A truce is called, and the rivals join forces on a quest. They find a damsel (their cat) in need of rescuing (asleep above a filled-to-the-brim bathtub), and true to form, the princess shoves the knight into the tub, but he pulls her in with him. When the Magic Mirror demands an explanation, the two finally set aside their differences: The cat did it! With a picture-book debut destined for storytimes across the land, the award-winning Holms (Sunny Side Up, 2015) play up the fun side of familial rivalry. The friendly battle will ring true to anyone with a playmate sibling, and young listeners will delight in the hilarious back and forth.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: This first foray into picture books by the best-selling, award-winning sibling duo is sure to draw interest.--Ronny Khuri Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Chivalry? It's more like rivalry as the siblings Holm (the Babymouse series) conjure a medieval brother and sister who can't resist pounding on each other whenever they get the chance. Illustrator Matthew draws the Evil Princess with a crown and a high-collared cape, while the Brave Knight sports a full suit of armor and a hefty sword. The Evil Princess hides behind a stone column, sticks out her foot-she's evil, after all-and the Brave Knight goes flying. Sent to their rooms by the Magic Mirror-a Disney-style inanimate character who serves in loco parentis ("Calm must prevail," it says)-they wait out their punishment. The Evil Princess attempts to work magic on a hilariously stoic stuffed rabbit; the Brave Knight is terrorized by a spider. When the two are released, they unite in a quest, but all too soon they're pushing each other into the bathtub. The sly contrast between words and pictures is the source of much of the story's fun: "He freed the fair maiden from her prison" shows the Brave Knight crossing the bathtub to rescue their cat. It's a droll portrait of the love-hate sibling bond-both medieval and modern. Ages 3-7. (Aug.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
