The Princess in Black and the Giant Problem: 03/30/22
The Princess in Black and the Giant Problem by Shannon Hale, Dean Hale, and LeUyen Pham (illustrator) is the eighth Princess in Black book. It's winter time and while Princess Magnolia is enjoying being snuggly in doors, the Princess in Black and her steed have a snow day play date.
Play dates never go as planned, it seems. This time there's a giant who is leaving a path of destruction as he stomps through the snow. Can the Princess in Black and the other heroes stop him before he reaches the village?
This book asks the question: when is a monster not a monster? When is destruction accidental and not malicious?
The book also introduces a bunch more heroes — or princesses in disguise. Each one, though, seems to have an even more ridiculous costume. As with the previous books I am holding out hope that the princesses will acknowledge their work as superheroes. It would make life so much easier for everyone!
The ninth book is The Princess in Black and the Mermaid Princess. It released on February 1, 2022.
