The Princess in Black by: Shannon and Dean Hale

Authors Shannon and Dean Hale have written a great beginning chapter book that may sound like the perfect girl book, but I believe that most boys will love the ninja skills this princess has.

The Princess in Black, Princess Magnolia, is being visited by the Duchess Wigtower.  As they begin to enjoy some hot chocolate and scones, the Monster Alarm rings.  Can the Princess leave her castle while a Duchess is visiting?  Magnolia isn't sure, but she knows that she must save her kingdom from the monsters.  Magnolia quickly leaves the Duchess and when she exits the castle she transforms into the Princess in Black.  With the help of her pony, she is quickly at the borders of her land fighting the monsters.  She demonstrates some great ninja skills and before long she is  back in her castle wearing her official pink princess dress, ready to complete her visit with the Duchess.

After reading this book go out and have an adventure of your own.

Happy Daily Reading
