Disney Villains: A Portrait of Evil: History’s Wickedest Luminaries is a collection of some of the deepest secrets and darkest spells of dastardly Disney villains. This book gives you a profile of villains such as like Maleficent, Cruella de Vil, Ursula, Mother Gothel, Scar, Jafar, and many more. Within each profile, you learn more about the character’s backstory and a sneak peak into their world, their special powers, and their friends and sidekicks. Some stories have doors and secret flaps that you can lift to uncover the Villain’s personal keepsakes and collectibles. For example, in The (Evil) Queen’s page, you can lift the flaps under the Magic Mirror to find the incantation she summoned to poison Snow White’s apple. Under Captain Hook’s page, you can find the secret map of Neverland. For Scar’s page, you can find a map of what the Pride Lands look like under Mufasa’s rule and again under Scar’s Rule.
I greatly enjoyed this book and learned a lot more about each villain and what drives them to do what they do. The book is filled with lavish never-before-seen illustrations of 18 of Disney’s famous villains and is filled with many stories and experiences that make each villain uniquely evil. My daughter’s favorite part of the book was all the beautiful illustrations and fun interactive elements found in some of the villain’s profiles. This book puts all the evidence of these villain’s wicked deeds right in the palm of your hands.
Disney Villains: A Portrait of Evil: History’s Wickedest Luminaries has 40 pages of beautiful illustrations and a great collector’s item. The reading level is for ages 8+.
