King and King by Linda De Haan and Stern Nijland (2002)

This picture book — which originated in the Netherlands — became the bane of marriage equality advocates when a schoolgirl in a "Yes on 8" ad came home clutching the book and told her mom that she was going to marry a princess.

But it's still a lovely book where even the prince's rejected female suitors still snag an invite to his fabulous gay wedding. And it concludes with a semi-censored picture of the two kings kissing at the end — hooray for gay monarchs!
