Booklist - 10/01/2016 After a long night spent battling numerous monsters, the Princess in Black (PIB) is so exhausted she needs help. Enter the Goat Avenger, looking suspiciously like Duff, the goat boy. He subdues the latest fiend for her and recommends a vacation. She bicycles off for a seaside holiday, but soon encounters an enormous leviathan that tosses her onto a deserted island. Meanwhile, back at the goat pasture, the Goat Avenger hones his superhero skills by training a squirrel to assist him. The Hales’ decision to alternate perspectives with each chapter interrupts the narrative flow a bit (especially for readers unfamiliar with these characters), but series fans will appreciate the development of the Duff/Goat Avenger’s backstory. Pham’s expressive artwork appears on almost every page, effectively breaking up the text for emerging readers, as well as helping them to visualize the story details. Particularly amusing are the paired illustrations that compare the Goat Avenger and Duff. Recommend the PIB series to Kate DiCamillo’s Mercy Watson graduates looking for a new fix. - Copyright 2016 Booklist.
