Serena Valentino » Mother Knows Best: A Tale of the Old Witch – BOOK FIVEThere are five books in total, including The Beast Within , which I read and reviewed last year. I feel a little locked up myself these days, after numerous school cancellations this week. It also has an awesome cover. Ringing endorsement so far right? Listen to your Moth-er! The scenes are brief and some die-hard Tangled fans may not like the details surrounding the events, but at least the major story elements remain in place.
Disney Book Review: Mother Knows Best
Mother Knows Best: A Tale of the Old Witch – BOOK FIVE
I was initially a fan of this series, greatly enjoying the first two entries. But my biggest criticism is that starting with book three, each book has needed to bend the rules of the original story to make the new one fit. And the Odd Sisters have continued to have a bigger involvement in each book to the point where they often take away the reasons we love to hate these Disney Villains. Which leads me to this:. Mother Gothel is a witch? By giving her powers, a coven, and an unselfish reason for kidnapping a young princess with magical hair, it fundamentally changes the character.
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.
As most of you know my next Disney Villain novel will be featuring Mother Gothel. I am so excited about Mother Knows Best! I took the opportunity to really get to know Gothel, what her upbringing was like, and what her relationship to her own mother and sisters were before she became the woman we know from the film. Artwork by Pablo Santander for our book the Odd Sisters. This is not the cover for the book. Stay tuned for official cover reveal and teaser from Mother Knows Best! Mother Knows Best if available for pre-order on Amazon!
It focuses on Mother Gothel from Disney's Tangled.
