    1. It is SO HARD to find beginning chapter books, people SO HARD I hate those numbered readers HATE THEM They are either lame, or they contain words that are well beyond the reading level Don t believe me Get your hands on any of the Indiana Jones ones That s right, there s some about Indiana Jones, a character from a movie that is far too mature for a 5yo And they contain words like archaeologist, ritual, and artifact So it was with great pleasure that I read this before giving it to my 6yo daught [...]


    2. What a delightful little humorous adventure The Princess in Black is a courageous young girl who goes by Princess Magnolia when she doesn t have to fight monsters But when she does, she puts on her black garments and flies into action This is a short book of ninety pages with lovely pictures that tell the story along with the narration LeUyen Pham, the illustrator, also illustrated Shannon Hale s middle grade memoir, Real Friends, which is a delight too Though the Princess in Black fights monste [...]



    3. I love this book It is adorable, funny, creative, fun and the illustrations are super cute My daughter loves to read it and reread it I have even caught my fifth grade son reading this It s simply a joy to pick up and read This would be perfect for a kindergartner or first grader who is needing a solid, first chapter book.


    4. Princess Pounce Blacky Buck Hornswaggle Hop Twinkle Twinkle Little Smash Shannon and Dean Hale can never do wrong They brought my spirit animal, Squirrel Girl into my life and my life hasn t been the same So when a Princess wears darker clothing, just like me, I rave my way at the chance to read it Princess Magnolia is hiding a big, huge secret and if it ever came out, her kingdom will never be the same During the day, she s pretty in pink Princess Magnolia and at night she s Princess in Black t [...]


    5. Perhaps most apparent at Christmastime, books and toys for young girls take a very gendered approach There is a proliferation of pink and princesses and puffy glittered hearts Sure, girls can like that stuff, but what about their other interests The Princess in Black is the perfect solution to that problem Princess Magnolia leads a pretty idyllic life in her castle She serves scones and hot chocolate and wears a frilly dress But when her secret alarm goes off, she turns into The Princess in Blac [...]


    6. In her everyday life, Princess Magnolia is the typical frilly glass slippers prim and perfect princess, but when her monster alarm rings, she become the Princess in Black wearing black tights and a cape with ninja moves The illustrations are pitch perfect in capturing the charm and humor of the fast paced action Every character is distinct and deserving of their own book Frimplepants, big blue monster, Duff, and Goat Avenger My favorite picture is the double spread of the Princess in Black crawl [...]


    7. 4.5 stars It s about a princess who wears black and tries to help the boy and the goats from the big blue monster and people think that princesses don t wear black I was heartbroken because they didn t let the princess wear black Princess can wear black if they want to I liked the part where she helped the goats and boy from the big, blue monster age 7


    8. Princess Magnolia is pink and dainty, but while she is having the nosy Duchess Wigtower over for hot chocolate, she gets a monster alarm and has to run out to a neighboring field to save a herd of goats from being eaten.Duff, the goat herder, is so impressed with her that he fashions a costume for himself as the Goat Avenger, and waits for the next time that the monsters forget about the mighty princess and try to eat his goats.Strengths Very delightful if this had been around when my daughters [...]


    9. So many books really play to the expected gender roles of young boys and girls, with pretty clear divisions by color, hobbies, accessories, etc This book gives us a heroine who is out saving folks dressed all in black like Zorro, but, also, says that the pink isn t automatically bad just because it is girly.Now I want to go fight monsters.Pham s artwork, by the way, is fabulous It captures a retro vibe from picture books of the 60s, but without feeling dated or self consciously ironic It suits t [...]


    10. My 7 year old s rating and reviews I love this book Even though there were 15 chapters, the chapters were really short so we finished it in one day and that was cool I want to read princess in black books.


    11. I have to read a bunch of early chapter books for a class, but I m glad I chose this as one Breaking down stereotypes of what a princess should be with cute illustrations and lines that made me laugh out loud Well done


    12. My little sister brought me her new copy of The Princess in Black and said I had to read it I m glad I did This book was so cute The story was humorous and engaging, and the illustrations were lovely It s fun for all I look forward to collecting the rest of the series D


    13. When Candlewick Press offered us a review copy of The Princess in Black by Shannon Hale and Dean Hale, I said yes Because who wouldn t want to read this Incognito princess fighting monsters Perfect Art by LeUyen Pham Even better I tried only reading part of it to my seven year old son, but that was no good He wouldn t let me stop until the end And as the back cover closed, he asked, anguished IS BOOK TWO OUT YET Son, I m sorry, but the first book just came out in October Cue loud dramatic sighs [...]


    14. I picked this up off the new shelf thinking my daughters would enjoy it and having no idea that it would become my five year old s new absolute favorite Princess Magnolia is a fancy, proper pink princess who has a secret She secretly dresses in black still with the tiara of course and does superhero things like stopping monsters from eating her buddy s goats The artwork is fun and the text is charming and funny The one problem I have with the story is, as my daughter herself asked me, why is it [...]


    15. What an unexpectedly fun read this was Even for adults Assuming I qualify as one I was looking for a gift for my niece, who had loved Vader s Little Princess Jeffrey Brown and this was recommended to me by a guru of kids books I didn t plan to read it before giving it to her, but in my continuing post Morning Star Pierce Brown hangover state, I figured it was a safe bet to not wreck my tiny uncarved Earthborn heart The writing is clever enough to withstand multiple adult reading aloud s The illu [...]


    16. I thought the premise of this book seemed charming, and I love girl power kids books This absolutely did not disappoint.The art was cute and charming, the humour was on point still smiling at cheeky snail , and the story was adorable I know that I would have loved reading this when I was little, and it was fun just to see a princess tackle the duties of princesses and moster hunting all in one book I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a kid s book with an awesome girl in the l [...]


    17. Things I Liked Yes I love this book Short, silly, fun, quirky, and best of all it can easily help little girls feel like they can have the best of both worlds pretty dress ups and fighting bad guys I feel like I love this book even because of Shannon s extensive blogging about girls and boys and writing and stereotypes But really, just get this book for every young girl you know Things I Didn t Like Want More.Full review at One Librarian s Book Reviews.


    18. I loved superhero comics so much when I was a kid, I brought superhero tropes into other genres and settings, like having my Dungeons and Dragons characters assume superhero names and wearing masks The Princess in Black is exactly the kind of thing I would have loved, which is why I love it now What s not to love about a pretty princess in pink who, in times of need, puts on a black costume and mask to fight monsters, while worrying people might discover her secret identity Cute, fun, and smart


    19. I wanted to like this than I did I love the premise Princess Magnolia looks like a typical princess in her frilly pink dress but when trouble comes in the shape of a large blue monster she sneaks out of the palace and adopts her secret identity as the Princess in Black Unfortunately I just didn t find the story that interesting, and I didn t really like the illustrations Still, this might be a nice book to share with girls who are really into Disney princesses, Barbie, and the endless Rainbow f [...]


    20. This was the perfect bedtime story to read to my 4 year old She loved the illustrations and that the princess had mad ninja skills and I loved that there were chapters so we could put it aside after just one chapter and that it was long enough to last a couple of days Plus, the story was cute and the illustrations were fun We ll definitely head over to the library to find the next book


    21. Because I have read Goose Girl many many times, I decided to purchase this book from a book order instead of borrowing it at the library for my girls I am so glad I bought this book My oldest loved it so much she read it twice in one day, once to herself and then again to her little sister At age 7, that s pretty great It s a cute story, with entertaining pictures Thank you, Shannon Hale Another great book







    22. Super cute book by Shannon Hale My girls LOVED it I hope there are adventures with the Princess in Black


    23. My children and I agree that this is the very best line Duff the goat boy was not part goat and part boy That would have been interesting But Duff was just a boy who took care of goats.
