Product Details


[Roscoe and Cole’s] story of a young prince defying an invading force while dressed in red pajamas certainly strives to tap into the high-stakes drama and chiaroscuro imagery of high fantasy…Roscoe and Cole never let things get too dark or dire for the young prince, but the cinematic imagery and breathless escapes should keep the target audience rapt.
—Publishers Weekly

A fable that attempts a spirit of community and loyalty.
—Kirkus Reviews

Through simple text and dramatic illustrations, this picture book from the illustrator of Wall (2014) tells a story about the power of community…Two-page spreads are interspersed with panels and single-page illustrations, adding a rhythm to the escape and chase.

A visually stunning work about a brave young boy and a people who come together to defend him. Sure to satisfy fans of fairy tales.
—School Library Journal

Viewers who enjoyed poring over the intricate artwork in Jones’ Beauty and the Beast (BCCB 3/14), though, may appreciate this folk-like tale.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
