Princess Posey is one of my favorite new characters in Book Clubs this year. She’s spunky and sweet and sometimes a little nervous in the way only little kids can be. Posey is someone that all kids can relate to (so boys, don’t be deterred by that tutu!); she has problems like the first day of school and being afraid of the dog next door.http://bookboxdaily.admin.scholastic.net/wp-admin/post.php?post=13784&action=edit&message=1
In Princess Posey and the Monster Stew, Stephanie Greene and Stephanie Roth Sisson have our heroine take on Halloween!
Trick-or-treating was exciting. But it was a little scary, too.
Posey wants to bring her flashlight along, but before she can admit it, a boy in her class states, “Flashlights are for babies.” On top of that, her teacher, Miss Lee, tells the class that they will be eating Monster Stew—but what is Monster Stew?? Posey is worried about having to eat “lizard livers” and “monster eyeballs”…until she puts on her tutu and turns into Princess Posey! Since Princess Posey can solve any problem, Posey will make it through Halloween—right?
This story is a great way to let kids know that it’s okay to feel a little scared sometimes. You can find Princess Posey and the Monster Stew in Lucky October!
