In this wordless picture book, follow a boy and his handmade newpaper boat on a rainy day adventure. With wordless books YOU can tell the story! For storytellers ages 4 and up.
Princess Magnolia is not your average princess. She is sipping hot chocolate and enjoying some scones with the Duchess, but then the monster alarms sounds and she becomes The Princess in Black! When the monsters start threatening the goats, it's up to the Princess to stop them, along with the help of her trusty stead, Frimpepants. Princess Magnolia, disguised in black, sets off to save the kingdom. Can she stop the monsters and keep the nosy duchess from discovering her secret identity? This is a fun read for any child who loves princesses with a little less frill and a little more adventure! (Grades K-3 School Library Journal)
