The Princess in Black and the Hungry Bunny Horde is the newest book of the The Princess in Black series. It’s a wonderful children’s book for ages five to eight. This book is written by Shannon and Dean Hale, and illustrated by LeUyen Pham.
It’s a case of monstrous cuteness as the Princess in Black encounters her biggest challenge yet: a field overrun by adorable bunnies.
Princess Magnolia and her unicorn, Frimplepants, are on their way to have brunch with Princess Sneezewort, an occasion Frimplepants enjoys more than anything in the world. But just when he can smell the freshly baked bread and the heaping platters of sugar-dusted doughnuts, Princess Magnolia’s glitter-stone ring rings. The monster alarm! After a quick change in the secret cave, Princess Magnolia and Frimplepants are transformed into the Princess in Black and her faithful pony, Blacky. But when they get to the goat pasture, all they can see is a field full of darling little bunnies nibbling on grass, twitching their velvet noses, and wiggling their fluffy tails. Where are the monsters? Are these bunnies as innocent as they appear?
I’m a new fan of Shannon Hale. The Princess in Black series is amazing and captivating. I have never read these books before, so I am just picking up at The Princess in Black and the Hungry Bunny Horde. This is book three of four so far in the series. Number four “The Princess in Black Takes a Vacation” doesn’t come out until November of this year. This is a fun children’s book series that I believe my niece will love.
My niece is not your typical girl. She loves gothic things and super heroes, while wearing pink and loving princesses. It’s about time we have a Princess in Black for girls like her. The girl hides behind pink during her days in the palace. Then mysteriously turns into The Princess in Black for adventures, a typical princess would not go on! This book has Princess Magnolia’s glitter-stone ring, ring in alert for monsters, and she goes off only to find… Bunnies. However the bunnies aren’t your typical rabbits, these are indeed, bad bunnies, you do not want to cross.
I do not want to spoil the book, but it one of adventure for young girls to enjoy! Easy to read and illustrated nicely, I can see this being a favorite of young readers everywhere. I enjoyed this book and I know my niece will too! I’m probably going to have to buy the first two now and the fourth in November. I can’t gift an incomplete set!
