Inconvenient monster alarms, a sparkly array of princess guests, and spot-on slapstick pacing make for a party readers will celebrate.

Today is Princess Magnolia’s birthday party, and she wants everything to be perfect. But just as her guests are arriving . . . Brring! Brring! The monster alarm! Princess Magnolia runs to the broom closet, ditches her frilly clothes, and becomes the Princess in Black! She rushes to the goat pasture, defeats the monster, and returns to the castle before her guests discover her secret. But every time Princess Magnolia is about to open her presents, the monster alarm rings again. And every time she rushes back—an inside-out dress here, a missing shoe there—it gets harder to keep the other princesses from being suspicious. Don’t those monsters understand that now is not a good time for an attack?

My Thoughts:

I thought this books was all types of funny. I read this to my sister Shannon and she laughed so much. Hale was such a good author have Princess Magnolia transform into a super hero and having so much fun adventuring off and saving her kingdom. At the end that's when I really laughed the most when she tried to cover up her identify and not get caught. I even read it to her as a bed time story and as she was falling  she woke up and said she still wanted to hear more. This a perfect story book to read to your younging's  while they are off to bed. Candlewick published the funny book and I quench for more books to have a laugh and a blast reading.
