Review: 5-Minute Villains Stories
One interesting aspect of the 5 Minute Villains Stories book is that there are repeat villain stories. For example, Alice in Wonderland is my personal favorite Disney film and there are two stories in this book. The first story has the Queen of Hearts desperate to get some rest but strange sounds keep floating through her room.
The second story has the Queen craving something to eat and Alice brings her treats but in the classic Wonderland way, none of the treats are what they seem!
In one-story the Evil Queen (Snow White and the Seven Dwarves) is longing for a spooky mood but is horrified that all she is surrounded with is cheerful animals and sunshine! In another story, Ursula attempts to sabotage one of King Triton’s events and the details in this story are a treat!
Ok so let’s be clear, some of the stories in this book are a bit longer than 5 minutes but that’s totally ok for my family. Kids will love that the stories are short and the accompanying illustrations are detailed, that’s part of the fun of reading through- spying on all the little fun characters and details that they’d miss in a movie.
