Frequently bought together
Pham’s expressive artwork appears on almost every page, effectively breaking up the text for emerging readers, as well as helping them to visualize the story details. Particularly amusing are the paired illustrations that compare the Goat Avenger and Duff. Recommend the PIB series to Kate DiCamillo’s Mercy Watson graduates looking for a new fix.

Then I brought it home and read it aloud to my five year old daughter who absolutely LOVED them. We read them all (again),
Our public library happened to have a Princess in a Black event this summer - my five year old was too excited. We went and she was able to talk all about the books with the "bigger girls".
The bright colorful illustrations do assist as context clues. There are also lots of opportunities for predicting/inferring.
While this series may not go down in history as great literature of our time - it got two different aged girls (5 & 9) to enjoy reading. That's a success in my eyes! We can't wait for the next book to come out in September!
I'm wondering though....does she ever get off the island?
