Disney Book Group is partnering with me for a giveaway of this book and more!
Growing up, I loved to watch fairytales unfold in Disney’s number of classic movies. As a little girl, I was focused on the princesses and never gave too much thought to the villains. Now that I’m older, I wonder what made the Disney villains the way they are? Well, guess what? Disney has a fun series about the Disney Villains!!! That’s right! In fact, the newest book in the Disney Villains series is Mother Knows Best.
MOTHER KNOWS BEST: A TALE OF THE OLD WITCH – VILLAINS SERIES, BOOK #5
By Serena Valentino
Release: August 7, 2018
Recommended for ages 12+
ABOUT THE BOOK
The Disney VILLAINS series by Serena Valentino explores how the antagonists in Disney movies became some of storytelling’s most iconic villains. In the first five VILLAINS books, we see how the Evil Queen, the Beast, Ursula, Maleficent, and Mother Gothel fall into darkness, through the instigation of the mysterious Odd Sisters: Lucinda, Martha, and Ruby.
The tale of the legendary golden flower is widely known. The story has been told many times and in many ways. But always the flower is coveted by an old witch to keep herself young and beautiful. And always the flower is used to save a dying queen, who then gives birth to a princess with magical hair. Not willing to lose the flower, the old witch steals the princess and locks her away in a high tower, raising her as her own. But the princess always finds out who she truly is and manages to defeat the old witch.
And yet this is only half the story. So what of the old witch, Mother Gothel? Where does she come from? And how does she come across the magical golden flower?
Here is one account that recounts a version of the story that has remained untold for centuries . . . until now. It is a tale of mothers and daughters, of youth and dark magic.
It is a tale of the old witch.
