School Library Journal - 01/01/2023 Gr 2–4—By day Princess Magnolia sits in her refined outfits, and when her monster alarm goes off, she turns into a caped ninja. In this entry, Magnolia is getting ready for the flower festival and the evening's ball. While setting up the decorations, a big emu begins to stomp, kick, and destroy her glass decorations. But Magnolia is at a loss at how to tame the grumpy beast. It turns out Prince Valerian also has a secret identity—he is the glamorous Prince in Pink, and his special skills save the day. A sweet twist shows Magnolia that the belligerent emu may actually have a softer side. This entertaining series centers a lovable, empowered female character; this is a princess who can save herself and still be frilly. Main characters are cued as white. VERDICT A wonderful addition to Hale's unique series, wherein zany humor and teamwork tells the story that children can be anything they dream of. - Copyright 2023 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
