The Princess in Black is a story about a seemingly perfect princess, with a secret. When a nosy duchess comes to visit, Princess Magnolia has to rush to turn into her alter ego (the Princess in Black), battle monsters from the nearby Monster Land, and make it back to the castle before her secret is discovered. This comical story with colorful illustrations is sure to delight young readers.
Now, it's time to let our kid readers do the talking.

My favorite part is when the Princess in Black is thinking about the nosy duchess. If I were the Princess in Black, I would try not to think about the nosy duchess. I like how cute the Princess in Black looks when she is hoping the duchess will not snoop.

My favorite part was when she switched from the Princess in Pink to the Princess in Black. If I were the Princess in Black, I would save people all over the WORLD!!!
