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 Take on the Book
The time has come for a new princess to surface on the scene. This princess has a dual identity and many secrets. Her name is Princess Magnolia but when trouble arrives she becomes the Princess in Black.

This is the first book in a series of THE PRINCESS IN BLACK. It was entertaining and the chapters were short. The story was well told . It was interesting how the authors took her from a princess dressed in pink to the princess dressed in black with super fighting powers.

Le Uyen Pham's illustrations added to the fun in the story. Seeing the characters reactions to the events helped to bring the story alive. The monster(s) that were created were very cute!

I think your little princess will enjoy this story.
