Princess and adventure fans alike will clamor for an invite to this not-so-perfect but oh-so-entertaining party.
—School Library Journal
Keeping the world safe from monsters is a daunting task. And only the PIB can accomplish this while throwing the perfect party! Expect high demand.
A lively cohort between the ages of 5 and 9 will rejoice to learn that their favorite royal monster-vanquisher has returned, in Shannon Hale and Dean Hale’s The Princess in Black and the Perfect Princess Party.
—The Wall Street Journal
The stories are filled with humor and action, and they show that girls, even girly-girls, can also fight crime and be heroes.
Girls who loved the Pinkalicious series (HarperCollins) should find this chapter book easy on the eye and paced for the average reader.
—School Library Connection

Then I brought it home and read it aloud to my five year old daughter who absolutely LOVED them. We read them all (again),
Our public library happened to have a Princess in a Black event this summer - my five year old was too excited. We went and she was able to talk all about the books with the "bigger girls".
The bright colorful illustrations do assist as context clues. There are also lots of opportunities for predicting/inferring.
While this series may not go down in history as great literature of our time - it got two different aged girls (5 & 9) to enjoy reading. That's a success in my eyes! We can't wait for the next book to come out in September!
Highly recommended for princess-obsessed emerging readers.
