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."
From the Back Cover
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!

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.
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!
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.
