This wacky adventure is loaded with gross, smelly stuff kids will enjoy as well as great messages about teamwork and problem-solving. It's fun to see that all of The Princess in Black's princess friends' have their own secret hero personas -- and unusual hero pets, too! The Princess in Black and the Bathtime Battle ends with a hint that there are "more heroes out there." This beloved series shows no sign of slowing down.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
