The Princess in Black

The Princess in Black

By: Shannon Hale and Dean Hale

Who says princesses don’t wear black?

This beginning chapter book introduces readers to Princess Magnolia who has a secret.  When trouble calls she trades in her fancy dresses and glass slippers for a black mask and cape.  She is secretly the Princess in Black! And stopping monsters is the perfect job for her.

This book is full of colorful illustrations that help early chapter book readers follow along with the story.  Princess in Black is the first book in a series.  I would recommend this book

for readers ages 6 to 8.
