Like most of you, we’ve been enjoying the latest story in The Princess in Black series—The Princess in Black and the Mysterious Playdate. In the past, we’ve borrowed the books from the library. We renew them and borrow them again. It was about time we got them for keeps, especially since my littlest enjoys wearing princess dresses while showing off her ninja moves and sound effects, “Shing, shing!”
If you haven’t as yet purchased your own copies of The Princess in Black series, you’ll be happy to know that the first three adventures are now available in a box set, with sticker surprises inside. Looking for a birthday or Christmas gift? The Princess in Black Box Set is the perfect package.

Izzy came up with 10 reasons why The Princess in Black books are smashingly spectacular…
1. The Princess in Black has cool ninja moves. “Twinkle Twinkle Little SMASH!”
2. She has a secret identity, and so does some of her friends.
3. There’s cute animals and fluffy monsters that aren’t scary. They’re cute too.
4. The stories are really fun and easy to read.
5. Every page is bright. There’s lots of pink, but other colours too. And lots of action in the illustrations.
6. The Princess in Black is a good role model, she’s kind and brave.
7. After reading each story, I always want to make-believe that I’m a hero like the Princess in Black, who goes on exciting adventures, saves the day and does a victory dance with my friends. I’m good at the doing the victory dance. “Callooo!”
8. We know things that the characters don’t, and that’s really funny.
9. I love horses, especially horses that can gallop fast, like the Princess in Black’s horse Blacky. “Fly, Blacky, fly!”
10. The Princess in Black is my friend.
