The Princesses have exciting adventures, as shown in the excellent illustrations. I've always wanted to ride a dolphin and be able to breathe underwater! They also attend Minnows School, a place that has some amazing teachers, whose skills I won't give away here. Although I will give a special mention to Clever Clam, my dream history teacher!
While all this excitement is taking place, themes of care for the environment, learning to work as a team and thoughtful decision making underpin the main events. Plus two major hot topics, central to the lives of all children, dealing with bullying and speaking up about secrets that 'should not be kept'.
'The Mystic Princesses and the Whirlpool' is a confidence boosting book for children, giving them important information. It is the first in a series and I look forward to reading more about Harmonie and her friends.
The young princesses practise using their newly-acquired skills to protect their new friend, Harmonie. They learn many valuable lessons, including looking after themselves, but not being overconfident, and when not to keep secrets. PJ LaRue weaves these life lessons into an interesting storyline, centred around the need to keep Harmonie safe from her father, the God of War, and from her less peaceful siblings, "The Children of Ares". (Harmonie's skill is to spread peace and happiness to other people, while her father wants to spread anger and violence!)
I particularly enjoyed reading about the interesting Minnows School that the princesses attend. With its colourfully-named teachers, and amusing lessons, you will soon learn the truth behind how shoes end up being attached to fishermen's hooks!
As "The Children of Ares" catch-up with Harmonie, the princesses must now move from Hawaii to New Orleans for their next book of adventures. All the princesses have parents living in different locations, offering the chance for this series to explore different locations and customs.
The short chapters would make this ideal for younger girls who are newer to reading Chapter Books. The colourful illustrations are excellent, and compliment this warm story nicely.
***A new series for girls, offering a fun way to learn valuable life lessons.***
Elias Zapple: Author of Duke & Michel: The Mysterious Corridor: 1
She is told that no-one must know who she is or were she is truely from after she is moved to Hawai, there she discovers friends and enemies in the wonderful adventure.
A well written and nicely illustrated book. It's a pity it's only on Kindle.
