The Prince Who Was Just Himself tells a delightful story of a child born with Down Syndrome. He is the third son of the King and Queen, who have noticed something different about him, but what they discover is the love and acceptance their son shares with those around him. When the knight Scarface threatens the land, it is through Prince Noah’s act of kindness that saves the kingdom from attack.
