The Princess in Black

LeUyen Pham, Shannon Hale, Dean Hale

The first in a funny, action-packed series for young readers who like their princesses not only prim and perfect, but also dressed in black!

Princess Magnolia is having hot chocolate and scones with Duchess Wigtower when… Brring! Brring! The monster alarm! A big blue monster is threatening the goats! Stopping monsters is no job for dainty Princess Magnolia. But luckily Princess Magnolia has a secret - she’s also the Princess in Black, and stopping monsters is the perfect job for her!

A rollicking read from the award-winning writing team of Shannon and Dean Hale and illustrator LeUyen Pham.


Who says princesses don’t wear black? Princess Magnolia may be having tea with Duchess Wigtower and pretending to be a delicate, proper princess, but she has a very big secret. She is actually a superhero in disguise and when the monster alarm rings, she must politely make her excuses so that she and her trusty steed, Blacky, can change costumes and rush to the rescue. But will the Duchess discover her secret identity before she can return from fighting monsters?

This is a gorgeous, action-packed adventure story that delightfully overturns the princess myth. With colourful artwork on every page, it’s perfect to read to aspiring adventurers aged 4 and up. Seven-year-olds will delight in reading it to you. Here’s hoping for more adventures from the intrepid Princess in Black!
