From the Inside Flap

What teachers said about The Mystic Princesses and the Whirlpool (you may read the full review in the Customer Reviews section):
  • Barbara Mojica said "This early chapter book is perfect for children ages six through ten. It does not portray wimpy princesses, but strong, respectful and independent female role models involved in many adventures in which they learn to overcome their weaknesses, act against bullying, and cooperate with friends and family to promote human welfare and peace. Short chapters interspersed with illustrations will maintain interest if the book is read aloud for younger children. Introduce your little princess to this one."
  • Murielle Cyr said: "PJLarue's children's book, The Mystic Princesses and The Whirlpool, belongs on any parent's or teacher's favourite read-aloud shelf. Having taught young children for many years, I can vouch it would be popular for youngsters starting out in their reading career. The setting transports you to the beautiful Hawaiian Islands where sandy beaches, coral reefs and rainbows make up the playground for the young girls. The princesses are all gifted with special powers, but they must learn to use these with care or harm will follow. Important life lessons are learned through play with the colourful playmates.... A book, both educational and entertaining."

  • Janet Balletta said; "This book makes a great addition to any classroom or home library. I am excited about this book series and can't wait to share it with my second-grade students."

On Coral's birthday, she and her three friends discover a secret about their identity. They are "Mystic Princesses", each endowed with special powers stemming from the elements.

As the water element, Coral has powers over the ocean and its creatures and can help her friends breathe under water. Janna is the earth element and can control the land and its animals. Plus, she can turn herself and her friends into flowers. Catie is the air element and can make rainbow slides in the sky and can turn herself and her friends into birds. Finally, Breanna is the fire element and can turn her friends into candlelight and create fireballs as a tool. Together, the girls must protect another of their own from the Children of Ares: Harmonie, a young girl who, as the daughter of Aphrodite, has the gift of peace and love.

As the girls learn to use and control their powers, the author takes the opportunity to share a number of life lessons which may be important to the target audience (tween girls). These include learning about the importance of practicing new skills and the consequences of over-confidence (i.e., failure) as well as lessons on modesty (i.e., not thinking you are more skilled than you actually are). I also thought it was great that the author proposed a unique method of self-defense; namely, talking through differences to explain individual points of view and to prevent the escalation of an argument. There were many important lessons spelled out in the story.

The Mystic Princesses features strong female role models in the main characters; many important life lessons for the target audience; and the promise of great adventure in the books to come. I did feel that this book is very much an introduction to the characters and to the overall plot.

What a cute book for youngsters to read with such a vivid imagination. It is good vs evil and in a way a child can understand. This book has princesses in it, just what all little girls love to read and it speaks of Love & Peace. The Children of Ares want to fight and cause wars so they are trying to kidnap Princess Harmonie. Princess Harmonie has a gift to make people feel peaceful. Love and Peace make it hard to fight and have wars. Princess Harmonie needs protectors so she starts her journey and gets to ride Darling Dolphin who likes to dive deep into the ocean. She meets King Neptune & Queen Pearl who agree to help keep Princess Haromonie safe. This story comes alive with imagination as the author P J LaRue writes a colorful world using the elemental powers that other princesses use from water, earth, air and fire to keep her safe. We already have the care bears that try and teach children how to share their feelings of love. This book tries to teach children how to keep peace. Thank you P J LaRue, I can't wait to read this to my grandchildren.

What a delightful children's book. The book is about the Children of Ares who are a mixture of war like and peaceful beings. Princess Harmonie and her brother Eros represent love and peace. When these two children have to split up to keep Princess Harmonie safe she meets Princess Coral and her friends. This little group have some splendid adventures together. There are great characters like Daring Dolphin, Scary Shark and Sandi Swordfish. All the time Harmonie lives with her friends she holds a secret about the Children of Ares. Eventually Princess Harmonie decides to share the secret which helps everyone. A lovely book for children with colourful pictures and any child who reads it will be looking for a sequel.

REVIEW BY: Angelina, age 9 years

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:

This book was about a girl that was getting on the subway with her brother. Her brother and her were kidnapped by some bad guys and they had a special tattoo. The bad guys gave her brother the same tattoo! She went to Hawaii for protection. She was a princess in Hawaii and everyone liked her.

Harmonie and Eros are teenage sister and brother living in New York City. One day a group of teenagers on a subway platform attempt to kidnap Harmonie. Mysteriously, they bear the same tattoo as her brother on their arm. Eros reveals a family secret. They are children of Ares, the god of war, whose children are tattooed at one year old. Most of the children of Ares strive to make life difficult for others, but he is the god of love and Harmonie is the goddess of peace. Their mother, the goddess Aphrodite, whisked Harmonie away before the age of one and gave her to Eros for protection. Eros is determined to safeguard her and tells her they must now live apart to avoid detection.

Eros has arranged for his sister to live in Hawaii. She will live and go to school with four princesses. Each have special powers derived from one of the four elements, earth, air, water and fire. This new group of five decide to call themselves the Mystic Princesses. Alongside the traditional school subjects, they are taught self-defense by Sandi Swordfish. In the afternoon the girls practice their individual powers, always on the watch for their enemies, children of Ares.

Sure enough, Ares was getting impatient; his children find their way to Hawaii. They cause much damage around Coral’s reef castle. Her parents King Neptune and Queen Pearl decide that all the princesses must move for their own safety. Their next adventure will take them to New Orleans where they will live with Princess Catie and her parents. What new adventures await them?

This early chapter book is perfect for children ages six through ten.
