K-Gr 3—When her monster alarm ring goes off, Princess Magnolia trades her fluffy princess dresses for her Princess in Black disguise. With the help of her faithful unicorn, Frimplepants, she fights the creatures from Monster Land. Will Magnolia be able to keep her secret while juggling her princess duties and defeating monsters great and small? Can she stop the monsters from destroying her kingdom? Narrator Julia Whelan's fun and engaging narrative style brings Princess Magnolia to life. Her pace is perfect, keeping listeners engaged and allowing those with a copy of the print books to read along. The installments, The Princess in Black, The Princess in Black and the Perfect Princess Party, and The Princess in Black and the Hungry Bunny Horde, set a new standard for well-written early reader chapter books. Princess Magnolia is a lovable and refreshingly strong character.
VERDICT Listeners who want to be a princess and a superhero will love listening to this audiobook.
