The Princess in Black and the Perfect Princess Party by Shannon & Dean Hale
The Princess in Black is back!
With the same sassy monster fighting moves and the same sparkly princess bling, Princess Magnolia returns ready to tackle a birthday party full of unsuspecting princesses.
I love the monster fighting onomatopoeia like 'tiara trip' and 'twinkle twinkle little smash'. I also admire Princess Magnolia's dedication to the cause despite the temptation to ignore the persistent and badly timed monster alarm.
The only disappointment with this sequel is not enough goat-boy time. I was hoping that goat-boy would become the Princess in Black's trusty sidekick. Instead goat-boy barely gets a mention and we see a new possibility for sidekick in the unfortunately named Princess Sneezewort.
But perhaps the Princess in Black, with her strong girl-power, can-do attitude doesn't need a sidekick other than her faithful steed?
What will book three, The Princess in Black and the Hungry Bunny Horde hold in store for us?
This is my first book in my 15in31 challenge (yay me!!)
