"I liked how author P.J. La Rue features strong female characters in The Mystic Princesses. ... I also liked the setting of New Orleans, and that the girls learn about Mardi Gras, New Orleans culture, history, and Cajun food. ...I liked reading about the girls rescuing oil-soaked birds in Alaska and seeing igloos and polar bears. Overall, LaRue teaches good values to readers while giving them a sweet fantasy aimed at second or third graders who might enjoy imagining the protagonists' special powers. ...The illustrations are very bright and colorful. I liked the "About the Author" page at the end of the book."

5 STARS - Readers' Favorite Review by Mamta Madhavan
"...The story is excellent and the very fact that it portrays these girls as powerful characters whose powers include the elements of water, fire, earth, and air is exciting to read. There are a lot of things woven into the plot that give the story many layers to it. The illustrations are bright and colorful and breathe life into the characters, scenes, and plot. The story will encourage readers to use their thinking skills, and it educates them on many new things which are useful and informative. An entertaining read."

What parents and children said about The Mystic Princesses and the Whirlpool (you may read the full review in the Customer Reviews section):
R Blalock said "Wow. The Mystic Princesses were a big hit with my 6 year old daughter. This book connected with her in ways I didn't expect she's been so intrigued with the story line she can't wait to read the next book. The best comment I heard from her, 'Dad we buy these books or did we get them from the Library, because I was hoping I could read them again and again.'"
Elizabeth Bostic said "My 9 year old daughter loves reading this book! She was really interested in the characters, and loved the adventures! She also loved the illustrations and the characters individual strengths! As her parent, I loved that is a fun and exciting book with great, strong female characters that she can look up to. It is a relief to have strong, fun characters on adventures without the sassy teen issues :-) Not ready for that just yet! I would highly recommend it to others!

"The Mystic Princesses and the Magic Show" is a fine chapter book for young girls in need of good positive role models, with colourful illustrations that complement the story well.
It has a cast of skilled and thoughtful young girls "running the show". They look after one another, and train hard to improve their abilities.
As in book one, the "Children of Ares" are on their trail, and they want to find and capture Harmonie. The reader will delight in the details given as the girls flee from one region to the next.
First we get to find out a bit about New Orleans and the Mardi Gras, then we are transported to Alaska. We see the caring side of the princesses, as they help to care for wild birds caught up in an oil spill, and we also get to experience different aspects of Alaska - such as visiting a glacier, and seeing polar bears.
Will the Children of Aries catch up with this plucky bunch? You'll have to read the book to find that out.
In the second book in the series, we join the girls known as the Mystic Princesses for quite an adventure when they decide to have a magic show and sell paintings to raise money for a cause they care deeply about. Aside from protecting animals from oil spills, the girls are always working on their self defense moves. These princesses are no damsels in distress! They can certainly rescue themselves. Even Harmonie, who is a human being protected by the princesses, is a very independent character.
This book will teach young princess-loving children critical thinking skills. I even learned some things! I did not know what caused the Northern Lights, but I do now! And that is just one of the fun things you will learn in this lovely princess book!
Another great book in the Mystic Princess series for sure! In this book, the "Children of Ares" are trying to find and capture Harmonie. The Mystic Princesses visit New Orleans and some travel to Alaska. Besides the excitement, the Magic show and a twist that happens at the airport, there is much entertainment and information provided in this book. The book kept me reading to the very end... and don't worry, I wasn't disappointed with the end! It ended in a way that makes me excited to read the upcoming book in this series!
This book is a wonderful easy chapter book with great role models. It is perfect for Earth Day as well as National Princess Week and its characters are princesses who are willing to risk their own safety to help a friend and also work to help save animals. My 7-year-old LOVES this book as well as the series and gets so excited to read it at bedtime. The series also gives a bit of multicultural mythology in it as the princesses parents are gods and goddesses. It is a fun book and series and we highly recommend it at our house! Disclosure: I was sent a copy of this book to review on my blog.
This is book two in the The Mystic Princesses Series targeted for early readers in the six to ten age range. Protagonists are strong female role models who struggle with everyday human problems, while at the same time learning to use their special powers to protect each other and improve the human condition. Coral, Catie, Janna and Breanna each have one of the four elements, air, water, fire and earth.
In their second adventure the four princesses have arrived in New Orleans at the home of Catie, where they are going to continue their training with the Goddess of War, Athena. They know that their enemies, the Children of Ares, are searching everywhere for Harmonie. When not training, the girls take their readers on a tour of New Orleans teaching them about Mardi Gras, culture, history, and Cajun food. Meanwhile, the Children of Ares are training and searching for Harmonie.
The girls hear about the plight of sea animals and birds covered by an oil spill near Alaska. They are determined to help so they plan to use their special powers to put on a magic show to raise money. Athena insists they deliver the money in person. Readers learn about glaciers, sled dogs, Inuit, and polar bears in the process. But the princesses are still in danger.....will the Children of Ares be able to track them down?
The large full page color illustrations enhance interest for younger readers. The large print is helpful for reluctant readers or students with disabilities. I like the mix of mythology, princesses, strong female role models, and adventure combined with the nonfiction elements that are explained and woven into the setting. Look forward to reading where the Princesses will be landing in their next adventure.

The mystic princesses series continues in Book 2. This is a great book for early readers ages 6-10.

The girls try to use their powers for the greater good, while also protecting each other when they are in danger.

The large full page color illustrations and the large print are perfect for readers this age. The mix of princesses, mystery and magic make this an appealing book for this age group. My 7 year old granddaughter can't wait to see what happens in the next story and gives this book 5 stars!
