All the kingdoms are getting together for a science fair. Princess Magnolia is super excited. But what do you know, the volcano science project gets out of control! Turns out, it really is a monster. Everyone in the science fair gets together to take down this monster.

Very cute. Bright, colorful illustrations. Fast moving. For those in about grades 2 - 4. Great addition to the series. ( )

Princess Magnolia goes to the Interkingdom Science Fair and discovers a monster has grown out of one of the experiments -- clearly a job for the Princess in Black!

This series is incredibly popular among young children, so I was eager to finally read one of them. Perhaps my mistake was in picking up one at random and not the first in the series. However, it didn't seem like I was that out of the loop and the major points (e.g., that the "Princess in Black" is Princess Magnolia's superhero alter ego) were explained. There were a LOT of princesses to keep straight in this particular book, but I'm not sure if that's always the case.

The story itself is pretty straightforward and relatively tame -- not too scary for the young readers who will seek this title out. I enjoyed that while the Princess in Black was able to help save the day, Princess Magnolia did NOT end up winning the science fair, despite her wishes. This is a nice balance and a happy ending that is satisfying enough; it seems like a lot of books for children have EVERYthing coming up roses for the protagonist by the end and that just sets children up with unrealistic expectations.

The illustrations are nicely done and showcase a decent amount of diversity. ( )

Another fun adventure for our Princess. I really appreciated how she showed up with a loser project and was actually grateful for the monster who smooshed it after she saw all the hard work and presentations that all her friends were delivering. So it had fun monster adventure, relatable chagrin, and cool science!

Also, it came in very handy for an emergency birthday party when I forgot an occasion with a neighbor. She loved it and boy did I look good! ( )

WooHoo Kids book! Its even better since its going to be a Christmas present for the niece... Thanks Librarything and Early Reviewers!

Onto the review - first, kid Literature is not really my thing. So, even though I read the book, I'm not sure if I am qualified to review. Honestly, I thought the book a bit... boring. But seeing as how its for kiddos who are still learning to read... It shouldn't be a masterpiece of great writing.

The ilustrations I thought were a bit messy, at times hard to follow. But, this is book 6 of the series, so, I suspect I'm missing some back story. The story itself is actually pretty cute - Princess Marigold is entering a science fair. Her friends projects are way better than hers, but it turns out okay, when one of the kids volcano project turns into a monster, The Princess in Black turns it all around, showing the other princesses they can be brave too.

So, the message is great, the story, a bit simple, but complete. Will my niece like it? I'll let you know after Christmas! ( )

Dainty princess meets princess power in an adventure which brings fantasy, humor and even science under one tiara.

Princess Magnolia is excited and nervous about her trip and contribution to the science fair. She didn't really spend much time on it and is not sure what to expect. Upon arrival, she meets her princess friends and each has a project which leaves hers looking more miserable with each step she takes. When she reaches Tommy's project, she notices something isn't right. The volcano refuses to explode, and it talks! Only the Princess in Black can solve what happens next.

This chapter book is great for readers who are pretty sure of their words, but aren't ready to dive into anything difficult. The sentences are kept short and simple as well as most of the vocabulary. At first, it came across as almost too simple but the story grabs quickly to create a fun, easy read. Each page holds bright and fun illustrations, while the text—written in a large font—never comes across as too much or heavy. It's a great balance which won't scare off more reluctant readers.

The author does a lovely job at mixing princess puffiness and perfect etiquette with bold and adventurous heroism. The princess are sweet yet a little fumbly and awkward, while still being prim and proper. It makes each one easy to love and promises a dash of silliness and excitement. The toss in of monsters hit a little quirky at first, but it works and adds the right zest to the adventure.

There's also a dab of science in this adventure, but never too much. Each project at the fair glides over with a quick bit of information but it's so light that readers catch it without feeling sciency. Later, the projects are brought in again as the princesses do their best to handle the goo monster. The science aspects don't run deep, but they are there and open up kids to some basic concepts.

I received a complimentary copy through Library Thing and found this tale to be such a wonderful mixture that I wanted to leave my honest thoughts. ( )
