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.

An ARC of Raina Telgemeier’s new book, GUTS.
- What author would you totally fan?
Bill Watterson, naturally. (Who wouldn’t?)
- What makes you cringe?
When my children tell me I said something cringey. Which is apparently most of the time.
- Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
My brother, Matt, and I tend to go with the flow as creators. Obsessively plotting kills the magic and humor for us.
- Is there a word you love to use?
“Manky” as in “manky cat” (see the attached picture of my manky cat)
