When a monster threatens the Interkingdom Science Fair, the brave Princess in Black (Princess Magnolia's alter ego) and her friends work together to relocate the monster and save the fair. This sixth installment maintains the early chapter-book series' lighthearted adventures and good humor while introducing some simple science concepts. Pham's cheery illustrations match the energy of the text.
Kirkus Reviews
Princess Magnolia's attempt at a monster-free science fair goes as well as can be expected in the sixth book of the Princess in Black series.With the Goat Avenger on monster watch, Princess Magnolia heads to the Interkingdom Science Fair. While initially excited about her project—a poster showing "how seeds grow into plants"—and seeing her fellow princess friends, Magnolia's soon intimidated by how ambitious and fancy the other royals' projects are. Why, Tommy Wigtower even has a talking volcano—when his baking-soda-and-vinegar volcano didn't erupt properly, he added monster hair. The resulting goo monster wreaks havoc on the fair, leading to appearances by the Princess in Black and the Princess in Blankets to battle the beast. Evicted from the volcano, the monster tries to find a new home, prompting Princess Honeysuckle, Princess Orchid, and Princess Snapdragon (all sans aliases and costumes) to help deliver the monster to the monster hole for a new home. While it's great to see the heroics from princesses in full regalia, the final page hints that they'll soon join in the alter-ego fun. Perhaps the best gem is when the science-fair winner is announced and the graceful losers offer genuine congratulations while resolving to try harder next year. Aside from white Magnolia, the cast is multicultural and multiracial.Amusing and nicely on-brand. (Fantasy. 5-8)

It’s mayhem at the science fair! A squishy goo monster is a challenge for the Princess in Black — but luckily some science-loving princesses are on hand to help.

Princess Magnolia is excited. Excited and nervous. She’s going to the Interkingdom Science Fair today to present her poster about seeds and plants, and when she arrives, she sees that her friends are there too! Princess Honeysuckle made a mole habitat, Princess Sneezewort has built a blanket fort, and Tommy Wigtower has a talking volcano that’s saying “EAAAAT!” Wait, what? A surprise goo monster makes this a job for the Princess in Black, and the Princess in Blankets is on the scene to lend a hand. But will two masked heroes be enough to save the science fair? A little scientific problem-solving — and a lot of princess power — will make the sixth entry in the New York Times best-selling series a smash hit.
