The Princess and the Grilled Cheese Sandwich (A Graphic Novel)
A nobleman with a secret and a princess on a mission find love—and lots of grilled cheese sandwiches—when they least expect it, in this funny, heartfelt graphic novel rom-com.
Lady Camembert wants to live life on her own terms, without marriage. Well, without marrying a man, that is. But the law of the land is that women cannot inherit. So when her father passes away, she does the only thing she can: She disguises herself as a man and moves to the capital city of the Kingdom of Fromage to start over as Count Camembert.
But it’s hard to keep a low profile when the beautiful Princess Brie, with her fierce activism and great sense of fashion, catches her attention. Camembert can’t resist getting to know the princess, but as the two grow closer, will she able to keep her secret?
A romantic comedy about mistaken identity, true love, and lots of grilled cheese.
Count Camembert is on his deathbed when he once more attempts to persuade his fiercely independent daughter, Lady Camembert, to find a husband. Growing anxious about her continuing refusal, he makes one final proposal: "If you are not willing to marry a man... would you be willing to become one?" Upon her father's death, Cam dismisses all but one servant, Feta; burns her own belongings; and, with her father's clothing, disguises herself as the new Count Camembert. Accompanied by Feta, Cam moves to the crowded capital city of the Kingdom of Fromage to live in anonymity. Having to avoid public gatherings to mitigate potential scrutiny, Cam chafes against her newly restrictive life and impulsively decides to test her charade on the grandest stage available: a ball hosted by Crown Princess Brie. There, Cam meets and immediately falls head over heels in love with the outspoken princess, but as the two embark on a coy courtship, Cam's ruse becomes harder to maintain. Cheese puns abound in this delightfully illustrated graphic novel by Muniz, rendered in vividly saturated full-color art. Muniz's impeccable rom-com instincts and the meticulously balanced high stakes combine to present a tender love story that plays out alongside the girls' individual struggles navigating society's limitations on women. Ages 12–up.
