“Before her eyes, the little candle filled with magic. It burned brightly, drawing butterflies to itself, and banished the darkness. It fought off the bandits. The candle became an eternal flame and created a place of wonder.”
In this novelization of the popular Disney movie Encanto, each chapter is told by Mirabel, Isabela and Luisa in turns. Just like the movie, there is some untranslated Spanish that adds character to the story.
While not a fully illustrated book, there is a family tree sketched out in the beginning before the story begins and there are small drawings at the start of every chapter.
A great read for anyone who enjoys Disney, female protagonists, and an overall good story.
