About the book:
Who says princesses don’t wear black? When trouble raises its blue monster head, Princess Magnolia ditches her flouncy dresses and becomes the Princess in Black!
Princess Magnolia is having hot chocolate and scones with Duchess Wigtower when . . . Brring! Brring! The monster alarm! A big blue monster is threatening the goats! Stopping monsters is no job for dainty Princess Magnolia. But luckily Princess Magnolia has a secret —she’s also the Princess in Black, and stopping monsters is the perfect job for her! Can the princess sneak away, transform into her alter ego, and defeat the monster before the nosy duchess discovers her secret? From award-winning writing team of Shannon and Dean Hale and illustrator LeUyen Pham, here is the first in a humorous and action-packed chapter book series for young readers who like their princesses not only prim and perfect, but also dressed in black.
My review: This book is so cute! It's a picture book written for elementary age kids. I loved all of it! I love Princess Magnolia, she has a secret that she doesn't want to have found out. She is the Princess in black and she goes around fighting big blue monsters. She doesn't want to be found out because everyone knows that princesses aren't supposed to wear black! This book teaches girls that it's okay to be a princess and wear pink and like sparkles, but at the same time, it's also okay to do things that aren't seen as something girls can do. And the pictures in this book are so cute! I highly recommend this great book by Shannon and Dean Hale!
I was able to borrow this book from my local library.
