Princess Pulverizer by Nancy Krulik (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Saturday, Dec 02, 2017 at 6:50pm

Princess Pulverizer may not be a knight yet, but she won't let that stop her from saving the day! There's trouble in the kingdom of Salamistonia! Ever since an evil wizard kidnapped Lester the jester, laughter and smiles have disappeared. Now Princess Pulverizer has the perfect opportunity to complete the next good deed on her Quest of Kindness: a rescue mission! With her friends Lucas and Dribble by her side, can Princess Pulverizer defeat the wizard, free Lester, and bring fun back to Salamistonia?

I selected Princess Pulverizer on the basis of the cover page. The cover page is attractive because it had a girl with messy hair which I assumed to be the princess. There is also a fat dragon which was eating a sandwich. On the back of the book there is a giant looking like a monkey and is wearing a tiara which I find funny. The character I like the most is Princess Serena, Or Princess Pulverizer as she prefers. I liked her the most for the reason that she is not like the other princesses, and we both like to go on adventures. The princess wants to be a Knight and argues with her father because of it. To me this represents the empowerment of girls. I didn't like Lady Frump because she is always yelling at the princesses. I give this a 4 out of 5 star rating.

Well this book has all of those things. In this book, a boy named Oscar Indigo who is very interested in baseball, gets a pocket watch that can stop time. His neighbour, Ms. Ellington, who used to be a famous baseball player, gave it to him. Will Oscar ever get things back to normal?

I really enjoyed this story because it was exciting and crazy things keep happening every time Indigo stops time. This is a great book for all ages and is a funny, exciting, one-of-a-kind book.
