Princesses Don't Wear Black???
I just discovered The Princess in Black by Shannon Hale and Dean Hale with illustrations by LeUyen Pham! I'm in extreme LIKE!!! This series for our youngest chapter book readers is funny and feeds into the princess-mania that makes some grandmothers - those who came of age in the 1960s, for instance - break out in rashes. Princess Magnolia is dimply, pink and perfect UNTIL the kingdom's goats are threatened by MONSTERS. And then, she and her unicorn, Frimplepants, transform into an amazing duo of monster repelling powers. I love the name Frimplepants. Just saying.
