    This tale tells of an unlikely bond formed between a shy prince and an ambitious dressmaker that changes both their lives forever. The art is gorgeous, the characters feel like real people (that you want to hug), and you'll wish it didn't end. Full of friendship, dreams, family tension and gorgeous dresses, Jen Wang's The Prince and the Dressmaker is one of my favorite graphic novels of the year.
