Staff Reviews

A heartwarmingly charming sapphic graphic novel that’s just the right amount of cheesy! Lady Camembert wants to live her life by continuing the family legacy, but due to the kingdom's laws, women cannot inherit. To circumvent these rules, Lady Camembert leaves her home and disguises herself as Duke Camembert, hiding away in the bustling main city of the kingdom. There, she meets Princess Brie, a vibrant and kindhearted woman who charms her way into Camembert's heart. As their attraction grows, Camembert's secret identity becomes harder to hide. Beautifully illustrated, this graphic novel touches upon the inequality between sexes, the pain hiding your true self causes, and the importance of putting one’s happiness above familial expectations.  A story full of secret identities, romance, and idiots in love, there's nothing cheddar than that!

“A complete and utter delight! I read it in one sitting and squealed the whole time. Much like a grilled cheese sandwich, this book overflows with goodness. I was heart-eyed all the way through! I recommend this to readers of all ages.”

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.
