Goodreads Synopsis:

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 is by far my favourite in the Princess in Black series! It was hilarious.

When the Princess’s monster alarm rings this time, she is on the way to brunch with her friend, so she can’t use her closet to turn into the Princess in Black. She must use a secret tunnel to transform. Much to her surprise, the “monsters” are a bunch of bunnies in the goat field! Though they are cute and snuggly, they are very destructive.

This story was so funny and creative. The bunnies are deceiving because they look cute, but they are really harmful to the goats and anything around them because they want to eat everything. Unfortunately for the Princess, the bunnies speak in “cute,” so they can only speak to other cute creatures. However, the Princess’s pony, Frimplepants, is also cute, so he is able to communicate with the bunnies.

I loved this hilarious story! I highly recommend it for kids and adults!
