Gr 1-2–This is the second book in the “Princess Truly” early chapter book series. In each chapter, Princess Truly, a brown-skinned girl with sparkly curls, embarks on different adventures with her brother Ty and her dog Sir Noodles. Princess Truly is not only magical, she is also kind. This is evident throughout the narrative as she helps a penguin and tries to cheer up Sir Noodles. The book contains three short chapters with one or two sentences per page, making it a great choice for students who are just starting to read chapter books. The full-color illustrations on each page add to the fun, whimsical text. Princess Truly’s curls actually sparkle with rainbows when she works her magic.
VERDICT This adorable story is a must-have for fans of the series, as well as a great addition to any early chapter book section.
