Princess Magnolia was having hot chocolate with the Duchess when her monster alarm goes off. Despite the bad timing she rushes off to her secret closet, and puts on her secret outfit, and becomes the princess in black. While she is away taking care of business, the Duchess is determined to uncover her secrets. Will the Princess be able to save the world before the Duchess finds out who she really is?  This book is a great lesson that not all girls are alike. It also teaches us not to judge someone by their looks, because you never know what awesomeness is hiding in their closet. The illustrations are bright and magical. They really add to the humor of the story. This book is witty and funny, and perfect for little girls who love princesses or mischief.
