NOW CLOSED: Win a set of The Princess in Black books

Who says princesses can't wear black? When trouble raises its blue monster head, Princess Magnolia ditches her flouncy dresses and becomes the Princess in Black. We’re offering five lucky winners the chance to discover more of the story with a set of the first four The Princess in Black books

This is a funny, action-packed series for young readers who like their princesses not only prim and perfect, but also dressed in black. Princess Magnolia is having hot chocolate and scones with Duchess Wigtower when… Brring! Brring! The monster alarm! A big blue monster is threatening the goats.

Stopping monsters is no job for dainty Princess Magnolia, but luckily she has a secret – she’s also the Princess in Black, and stopping monsters is the perfect job for her in this rollicking read from the award-winning writing team of Shannon and Dean Hale and illustrator LeUyen Pham.

A New York Times bestselling series, The Princess in Black was also featured in the BBC’s No More Boys and Girls: Can Our Kids Go Gender Free? documentary last summer.

'The Princess in Black is a charming, warm and funny read, aimed at children who are starting to become more confident with reading… This is a beautiful gem of a book.' – School Library Association
