ALA Booklist
The Princess in Black's latest caper involves a playdate with Princess Sneezewort. For once, the monster situation seems under control, now that the Goat Avenger (aka Duff) is assisting. But Magnolia (aka the PIB) is unaware that a sneaky shape-changing monster has stowed away in her carriage, and the hungry beast causes no end of problems. Certain that Magnolia is afraid of monsters, Sneezewort decides to become a superhero herself, the Princess in Blankets. The superheroines have great fun locating the monster (who morphs from bush to streetlight to park bench), pummeling him with ninja moves, and finally returning him to Monster Land. An unsung strength of this series is its successful blending of traditional masculine and feminine pursuits in stories that promote active, imaginative play for all genders. Pham's colorful illustrations are pleasing as always; young readers will especially delight in locating the camouflaged monster in the art. With spot-on humor for its intended audience, this is sure to please series fans and newcomers alike.
