(The Rescue Princesses #1)
Princess Emily travels to the castle of Mistberg with her parents. She has finally reached the age of nine years old and is now allowed to attend the Mistberg Grand Ball. She is excited to meet the other princesses. The four princesses are soon good friends and work together as a team to rescue at little fawn. But someone evil is planting traps in the forest and none of the adults will believe the girls. The princesses must work together to solve the mystery and save the deer of Mistberg Forest.
As the first book in the series, the plot sets the tone and introduces all of the princesses. It ends with the girls planning to keep in touch, which provides a sufficient opening for the next book in the series. The story flows well and showcases compassion for animals, team work, and trusting friends. The illustrations were lively and entertaining. Girls will be able to relate to the princesses and the story of helping others.
I received this book free of charge from Children's Lit in exchange for my honest review.
