Maleficent is magnificent

The Curse of Maleficent: The Tale of a Sleeping Beauty - Walt Disney Company, Disney Storybook Art Team

This colorful book is based on the movie and is nicely done. The other one, probably a more adult version that I don't have, would probably be nice too.


The story. If you have seen the movie, you will like this one.


If you haven't seen the movie, it is still a simple, and a different take on the old fairy tale. 


A nice twist.


Like Frozen, it take a villain, give the character a back story, in explaining their action. 


This is explaining how the "dark faerie" turned dark, and in her anger, put a curse onto a baby.


I wouldn't like it if it is not this way.


The innocent girl is a bit too naive in this one. Maybe give her a bit more spirit and less trusting would be even better.


The story is a bit too straight forward, to the point of predictable. 


Once the story is set up, we kind of know the ending.


Also, add the remorse for the king would even be better. Give him some back story and so he is not totally disgusting.


It is an easy read, suitable for children. 


Still a 5 stars read, as there isn't a lot of children book that put that much efforts into making. 


10 bucks well spent. 


Go read it.
