I took this book on holiday with us for big man to read. Then I had a flick through and started reading it myself. In all honesty I think it is a little advanced for big man. I would suggest it to a confident 8/9 year old. It is also suited to girls who love Disney films and fairytales. If you are the kind of person that likes Malicifencet or Wicked then this book may interest you. Rather than the story before the fairytales it tells the story after. It does require a good knowledge of a lot of fairytales to fully appreciate the story. It is also the prequel to Disney Descendants which was released this year on the Disney Channel.
The story is set in the kingdom of Auradon where the evil villains were banished to the Isle of the Lost. It is a dark and dreary place protected by a force field that makes it impossible for them to leave. The story focuses on the next generation. Stripped of their magical powers, the villains and their children now live in total isolation, forgotten by the world. But hidden in the Forbidden Fortress is a Dragon’s Eye: the villains’ only hope of escape. Only the cleverest, evilest, nastiest villain can find it. In the quest for the Dragon’s Eye, the villains’ kids learn that being good ain’t so bad, and sometimes it even helps!
Disney Descendants: The Isle of the Lost can be purchased from Amazon here. Parragon have also offered a copy to giveaway to one of my readers. It really would make a lovely gift for an older child who knows their Disney films. Just complete the rafflecopter below. Good Luck!
