This snowy adventure finds some new ways to keep the series fresh. The Princess in Black and the Giant Problem goes beyond the hole down to Monster Land and gives the heroes someone new to battle: a giant. And the three main characters get help from four new princess heroes. We've met them before, but here we see them joining in to play a big part in saving the day. There are silly moments, lots of cartoon battle action, an emphasis on teamwork, and a fun twist about who the giant is and why he's on a rampage yelling "Squashy!"

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.
