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?

This book redeemed the series for me. I really enjoyed it. Princess Magnolia and Frimplepants are off to brunch when the monster alarm goes off. The dash off to their hide away, change their appearance, and race off to the meadow to save Duff and his goats from the latest monster invasion from Monster Land. This time, the monsters are bunnies. The Princess in Black thinks they're cute, Duff sees them devouring everything in sight, but only Blacky can hear them speaking the language of cuteness. This story was so unique. I loved it. I also enjoyed that Blacky saves the day. And there was a mention of Duff some day becoming the Goat Avenger, which I am really looking forward to. Unlike the second book, this book returns to being a bit more gender neutral as there is not an overload of princesses in the story. Also, I don't recall if there are alternating perspectives in the second book, but I remember them from the first book. Hale uses them again in this book. The chapters alternate between the Princess in Black's, Blacky's, Duff's, and even the bunny monsters' points of view. I really enjoyed Blacky's comical obsession with brunch. Hale still uses fun action words in the battles, and once again Princess Magnolia's secret identity is not discovered, which even my son found a little unbelievable. But it always is that way with super heroes, right? This is a fun and enjoyable read and a great addition to the series. I will definitely be on the watch for the 4th book, which is due out later this year. http://www.momsradius.com/2016/03/kid-lit-princess-in-black-and-hungry.html
Sophie (age 6) says: I would like to rate this book 5 stars because it has cute bunnies. I love the princess in black because she's like me. I like to practice moves and I want to be an adventure princess when I grow up.
