Themes: Funny stories/ Rabbits/ Series/ Transformations

At first glance, Princess Magnolia and her unicorn, Frimplepants, just seem like any other old princess and unicorn but, when the princess’s glitter stone rings they turn into the Princess in Black and her faithful pony, Blacky. They are geared to solve any mystery or unusual happening that may present itself. This time they are confronted by a multitude of adorable little bunnies which may just not be a cute as they look.  The Princess in Black series are great for newly independent readers with their well set out pages, easy reading, very funny stories and plenty of illustrations to match the words. 
Fun to read aloud. 

All three have received starred reviews in Kirkus Reviews – a great honour.  Kirkus, an American Review Journal reviews titles before their publication and is well worth a visit on the net if you are not really aware if it.  

Years 2-4/ Ages 6-8
