The very pretty Princess Magnolia is having hot chocolate in her castle with the very nosy Duchess Wigtower. ‘You are too prim and perfect,’ says the Duchess. The perfect Princess smiles. Unknown to the nosy Duchess, Princess Magnolia has a secret cupboard where she stashes her outfit in black. When her ring rings, it’s time to change into the bold, monsterfighting Princess in Black.

There are monsters to fight and goats to save. Even the princess’s friend Duff is more than a simple goat-herd. He’s a ‘goat-avenger’ in disguise – or wants to be.

This funny Supermanthemed book, with beautiful illustrations by LeUyen Pham, has innocent-looking characters change into heroes. The Princess in Black herself has a black cape, a mask and can fly through the air. She can control monsters and even manages to outwit the nosy Duchess, too.
