A magical read for a magical romance

Title and author: Prince William and Kate: A Royal Romance  by Matt Doeden

This is a juvenile biography of Prince William and Kate Middleton - their romance and their wedding.

My Thoughts:

This nonfiction piece serves as a biographical sketch of the Royal couple. The information was presented in a delightful, age appropriate way.

The author takes great care in explaining the complicated life of Prince William in terms that young readers can understand. The biographical information on the Prince and on Kate was quite interesting and the writing had a nice flow.  

What I enjoyed most about the novel was how the author wove the lives of these two together. He first focuses on William, revealing information on Will's life before and after the death of his mother. He then transitions into Kate's world, allowing readers a glimpse into the life of a woman that little is known about, with exception to her being "Will's girlfriend." The biography then concludes with the two joining as husband and wife.

With plenty of colorful photographs to enhance the information provided, this biographical sketch is a “must read” for any young reader doing research on the royal family or just interested in learning about Prince William and Kate.

The information is insightful, making the information quite accessible to juvenile readers.
