Promised Land is a story of friendship, adventure, responsibility and love written by Adam Reynolds and Chaz Harris and illustrated by Christine Luiten. The book is an LBGT themed children’s book aimed at 5 – 10-year-olds and up.
In Promised Land, a young Prince and a Farmboy meet by chance in the forest and their newfound friendship soon blossoms into love. However, things get complicated when the Queen’s sinister new husband seeks control over the enchanted forest that the farm boy’s family are responsible for protecting.
When asked about what prompted them to write this book to the authors answered:
Growing up with very little in the way of LGBT stories in print or on screen, we decided to write the story that our eight-year-old selves needed. During our childhoods and teen years, we had no role models or stories that represented the notion that “happily ever after” could even exist if you’re gay. As such, we felt there should be more stories like that, and so we wrote one together.
This is not just a story for gay youth. It is a story about two people who meet and fall in love. The book offers a judgment-free story about friendship, love and acceptance which would make good reading for everyone young and old alike. After all, who doesn’t like a love story?
