Kids’ Club Review by Pranaya: The Princess in Black and the Perfect Princess Party

The Princess in Black and the Perfect Princess Party, by Shannon Hale

This book has lots of details.As soon as I read the blurb I knew that I would love this book.I got this book as a birthday gift.When I saw the book I thought that it was very boring but it is such a interesting book.I like how princess Magnolia has to fight with lots of monsters but she still has a great birthday.

Kids’ Club Review by Luke: The princess in black and the perfect princess party

It is Princess Magnolia’s birthday. Before the guests arrive, the monster alarm rings and Magnolia has to become the Princess in Black to defeat the monsters. Once defeated. the princess goes to enjoy her party but every time she opens a gift, the monster alarm rings again. How does she fight the monsters but not let her guests know her monster fighting secret? I think this is a good book for children 6+. I liked it because Princess Magnolia is not a traditional Princess but a cool, monster fighting one. I rate it 5 stars just for challenging stereotypes.

Kids’ Club Review by Cardi: Jade the disco fairy

I think the goblin is so silly. Kirsty and Rachel are so nice to Jade. Kirsty had a good plan.
Jade made a ball and Rachel went bowling. She had to bowl the goblin down. Get it? It is very funny.

Kids’ Club Review by Hailey: The princess in black takes a vacation

The princess in black takes a vacationThe princess in black takes a vacation, by Shannon Hale

Some parts was hard some parts easy. It is a fantasy story. I would like to meet the princess in black. I would change the ending to the princess telling the monster off. The monster would then be sad and the princess would tell him don’t be sad lets have a vacation together. And they would try and sit under the umbrella together even though the monster would be too big.
