    This. Is. ADORABLE! It's the classic Prince and Peasant story turned on its side with the peon being a dressmaker who has big dreams and the prince secretly being a princess or, more accurately, a society lady. The dialogue doesn't always flow well or make perfect sense but th...

    This was absolutely adorable. I'm not exaggerating when I say books like this really do restore a little of my faith in humanity. It's a really cute story but, as a person who generally prefers "tense" and "gritty" over "cute" reads, it's not too saccharine as to be unbearable. This...

    Loved, loved, loved! The art style was colorful and cute and atmospheric, which is exactly what I enjoy in a graphic novel. It takes place in late 19th century France, which gives the story a slightly fairytale vibe. The characters were lovable and helped each other become the best ver...
