Book Review: The Princess in Black and the Bathtime Battle

Something smells like trouble! Can five princess heroes and one Goat Avenger pool their talents to vanquish a monstrous stink?

The Princess in Black is in a very stinky situation. A foul cloud is plaguing the goat pasture, and it smells worse than a pile of dirty diapers or a trash can on a hot summer day. But every time the Princess in Black and her friend the Goat Avenger manage to get rid of the odor, they accidentally blow it to another kingdom! Other masked heroes and their trusty companions show up to help, but how do you battle a stench when your ninja moves fail? Fans with a nose for slapstick will be tickled to see the six stalwart friends join their wits to take on an impossibly beastly stink.” (from Goodreads)

My sisters and I love sharing this series, but I’d fallen behind on this one and ony just now got to read it. It was pretty adorable, and as always, I love the illustrations. (LeUyen Pham is fast becoming one of my favorite illustrators. 😉 ) I especially loved how well-introduced each princess hero was in this one, especially since I found the large cast confusing in the last book. The little glimpses into each girl’s life were really fun. 😉 I love how each princess hero (and goatherd and that strange squirrel ?? ) shone in their different abilities during the big battle.

Just a note, the stinky monster is very stinky and there are some descriptions young children might delight in repeating. XD

Altogether, we enjoyed this one! 😀
