I LOVE that a husband and wife wrote this together!
Princess Magnolia is entertaining the Duchess Wigtower when her glitter-stone ring... rings.
Oh no~~ it is a "monster alert!"
Princess Magnolia needs to answer the call, but according to the Duchess Wigtower...
Princesses don't run and princesses don't wear black
Read this fun book together with a child to see what Princess Magnolia will do and who will be watching her.
And what will Duchess Wigtower do while the Princess is gone?
"A humorous and action-packed chapter book for young readers who like their princesses not only prim and perfect, but also dressed in black."
CUTE. CUTE. CUTE. BOOK!
PERFECT book for a beginner reader!
