Video Inspired by The Princess in Black
by Jamie Turak
Have you ever enjoyed a book series so much that you came up with future book titles and stories yourself?
Well, the Book Boys love the Princess in Black series so much, they dreamt up a few Princess Magnolia adventures of their own. And now they have the chance to pitch their original story ideas to the book creators, Shannon and Dean Hale, aka the Authors in Black. Will the monsters be scary enough? And will Princess Magnolia’s battle moves be valiant enough for their liking?
Watch this video together with your class to find out. And see if your students can come up with their own story ideas for more Princess in Black adventures!
These four guys, who work in different departments at Scholastic Book Clubs, formed a book group. Each week, they choose a book to read together. Then they meet, discuss, and create fun and entertaining videos to help kids discover titles offered by Scholastic Book Clubs.
While the Book Boys come from diverse backgrounds and were definitely different growing up, they all have one thing in common: they really want to keep kids excited about books and reading.
