Book Review - The Evil Princess vs. the Brave Knight by Jennifer Holm and Matthew Holm + Giveaway

The Evil Princess is known for casting terrible spells. The Brave Knight protects the villagers from the evil dragons. One of them helps those in need while the other causes mischief. Between the two of them, the kingdom is always in distress.  

I thought the book was a fun read but, I didn't like that the little girl was portrayed as a villain. I felt like with kids even if one child seems to be one way, when they are playing together their personalities do change. Overall, it's a fun read because I did notice things that my brother and I used to do when we were little (and sometimes, now).
