Princess Magnolia is having hot chocolate and scones with Duchess Wigtower when... Brring! Brring! The monster alarm!

A big blue monster is threatening the goats! Stopping monsters is no job for dainty Princess Magnolia.

Can the princess sneak away, transform into her alter ego, and defeat the monster before the nosy duchess discovers her secret?
