Explore a wintery world of magic in Walt Disney Animation Studio’s latest film, Frozen. This jacketed picture book features an original story about Anna and Elsa, the film’s two sisters, as well as illustrations by one of the artists who worked on the film.
This book was incredibly cute! I absolutely loved reading through it. I have to admit that I bought it because I knew that the artwork was going to be gorgeous but the cute rhyming lines won me over, too. Anna and Elsa both have lines in this book. Each speak with a different color and font. They talk about their childhood as well as what they thought of the other when they were growing up together. Siblings can always be difficult with one another and this story really shows how you can be annoyed with someone for their differences one moment and love them for it the next.
I would really recommend for people of any age to pick up this book because of its incredible artwork. I love the work Brittney Lee does and can’t wait to see more from her. Disney really outdid themselves with making sure that this one was going to look beautiful and made the right choice in using Brittney Lee again.
I think people of any age can get something out of this book. Of course younger children will adore hearing more from the princess and Queen but I also liked a little insight into the years that were skipped over during the ‘Do You Want to Build a Snowman?’ montage. The pictures show more of Anna and Elsa growing up and we learn more about their hobbies and personalities.
Overall, this was a fun read that I really enjoyed!
