Item description for The King's Equal (Trophy Chapter Books) by Katherine Paterson & Curtis Woodbridge...

In order to wear the crown of the kingdom, an arrogant young prince must find an equal in his bride, instead, he finds someone far better than he

Publishers Description

Who is she?

A dying king makes his son his heir--on one condition. Vain Prince Raphael must marry a woman who is his equal in beauty, intelligence, and wealth...

Where is this woman?

A search throughout the kingdom proves fruitless. Then the lovely Rosamund appears at the palace, as if by magic, and Raphael is certain he has found his wife. She is intelligent and wealthy, as well as beautiful--certainly his equal, he thinks.

But what does the mysterious Rosamund think? Two-time Newbery Medalist Katherine Patersons critically-acclaimed original fairy tale about an arrogant prince and his search for a bride is now available in a reformatted chapter book edition. With beautiful new line art by Curtis Woodbridge, this provocative story with a contemporary social message (The New York Times Book Review) will become an instant classic for newly independent readers. An entertaining and enchanting story.

Reviews - What do customers think about The King's Equal (Trophy Chapter Books)?

Great Story lousy Edition  Sep 6, 2007
This is a great story, but this printing is a huge disappointment. The type is large, which is nice, but the book is cheaply made. I have another, older, paperback version that is so much nicer. Better yet, spend the money and buy the hardback.
Of Worth and Wisdom: The King's Equal  Mar 11, 2007
Generously illustrated and beautifully told, this story of companionship and cunning invites us to play with perspectives and the possibility that perhaps the greatest magic is the support of a friend.
The King's Equal  Mar 8, 2007
Great Book. The book came quickly and was in great shape.
A book I still remember  Jun 9, 2006
I have a vivid memory of reading this book when I was in the 2nd or 3rd grade. It is a great read, a colorful twist on the familiar Cinderella-story of a conventionally "poor" lady and her romance with a very wealthy male lead.

As a child, I gained confidence in reading something called a "chapter book" and I imagine that your children will appreciate that as well, without facing the daunting consequences of reading a chapter book beyond their capabilities.

For the very young, I would suggest reading with your child as I remember struggling with some of the words in "The King's Equal" when I was 9.

And as other reviewers have pointed out, this is a great book for its illustrations as well. I don't know if this version is the same that I read (I remember a teal cover) but if it is, check out the page where they display some of the belles of the ball. Those ones are the most fabulous throughout.
Buy this book!  Oct 26, 2005
I would recommend this book if only for the beautifully detailed illustrations. This is truly a wonderful book with a great message about the value of character and friendship rather than physical beauty and wealth. Not your typical fairy tale. Has a very positive, courageous girl character.
