Hale, Shannon and Hale, Dean The Princess in Black and the Perfect Princess Party (Book #2) 90 pgs. Candlewick, 2015. $14.99 Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G Violence: G
Its Princess Magnolia’s birthday and all the other princesses have come to her party. They of course, brought presents, but every time the group sits down to open them, Princess Magnolia’s monster alarm rings. She keeps managing to be the sneak out to be the Princess in Black and defeat them, but after many calls come through, its downright exasperating! Worst yet Princess Sneezewort is getting curious about the disappearances and may discover the secret!
The first book in the series is much requested by 1st and 2nd grade girls. I think it quirky and even sneaks in some humor. The illustrations are darling and I love that Princess Magnolia can be girly and a tough monster beater!
