The Princess in Black and the Science Fair Scare: 11/08/20

The Princess in Black and the Science Fair Scare

The Princess in Black and the Science Fair Scare by Shannon Hale and LeUyen Pham is the sixth book in the Princess in Black series. Princess Magnolia has been working hard on her botany project. The other princesses and princes have been busy too.

The science fair should be a monster free zone. But that's not the case. Not when some monster goo has been mixed into the volcano model.

This time Magnolia as the Princess in Black has an entire room of masked superheroes. Together they use science and engineering to save the day. With so many masked heroes, I'd love for someone to figure out that they're all royalty in disguise.

Besides the applied science aspect of the story, I especially liked how the volcano monster was treated. They're treated fairly and humanely. They're given a new home. The whole thing ends up being a huge character development boost for the monsters in this series.

The seventh book in the series is The Princess in Black and the Bathtime Battle (2019)

Five stars
