A 2023 ALA Best Graphic Novel for Children

To break the curse on the kingdom, Syv, the youngest snowcat prince sets out on a dangerous quest to find the long-lost magical crown of his ancestor and learn the true meaning of bravery and honor.

Syv is a snowcat and the youngest in a family of princes. When his father dies, Syv and his brothers are all in line for the throne. Eager to become kings themselves and wary of how well-liked Syv has become by the citizens, Syv’s brothers send him on a dangerous quest to find the long-lost magical crown that once belonged to their royal ancestor, the Eldking. Legend says that the snowcat who finds the crown will break the curse on their land and bring great honor to the family. But failure could mark Syv with three black stripes, and he’d be banished forever.

Along his journey, Syv will face dangerous beasts, dark powers, and the ever-lurking sand foxes—sworn enemies to the snowcats. But when Syv discovers the truth about the legend of the Eldking and his magical crown, he’ll have to learn the new meaning of honor and find another way to break the curse. 

From Norwegian author Dina Norlund comes The Snowcat Prince, a beautifully illustrated tale of bravery and honor. 

About the Author

Dina Norlund is an artist who likes to dabble in all things creative. Everything from painting, storytelling, sculptures, crafting or designing, she has probably tried it all at one point. Surprisingly she has managed to focus on one thing for long enough to write, illustrate and finish a comic project or two. Growing up in the lush forests of Norway she takes a lot of inspiration from the culture and folklore when writing and illustrating her stories. Currently she spends her days in a small house with a garden, husband, and cat while doodling on her next magical adventure.
