Easily one of the most majestically evil characters in any animated movie, Maleficent serves as the villain in Disney's movie adaption of Sleeping Beauty. Now we are told she was a hero when she was younger? What changes a hero into a monster?
Betrayal. A thirst for vengeance.
Does Maleficent's story truly end with her death as a huge black fire breathing dragon as is suggested in the climax of Disney's Sleeping Beauty?
Based upon the story in Disney's new movie, Maleficent, this chapter book contains beautiful color illustrations that invite you to step into a "once upon a time, in a far away kingdom," circle around the question of "what makes a monster?" and stay for a "happily ever after." (It is a fairy tale after all...)
But, in-between lies a wondrous world of magic fairies and dragons, and all the adventure a fourth, fifth, or sixth grade fairy tale fan could want.
