We love the princess in black!
Reviewed in the United States on October 14, 2015
Another winner. We preordered this and forgot about it - it was such a lovely surprise when it came! My 6 year old LOVES these books, and they're just perfect beginner chapter books. 98% of the writing is phonetic or common words, with an average of 1-2 words a page she has to ask for help with. Since it's so long (yay!), we trade reading pages. She loves the "sound effects" pages and how the princess keeps getting more and more disheveled. I told her we were done for the night after 7 chapters, and she read 4 more on her own! (We're working on her reading stamina, so that's a big deal.) She loves to pretend to be the princess in black. I love that these books celebrate a princess who is girly, athletic, courageous and kind.
