Inside the Magic is excited to announce our partnership with the Disney Book Group to give away the complete set of all 5 Disney VILLAINS books from author Serena Valentino.
Every Disney fan knows the story of Rapunzel and Mother Gothel from the 2010 Disney classic “Tangled.” Our younger fans and their parents are perhaps also familiar with the recent TV adaptation Rapunzel’s Tangled Adventure, while we hope the LEGO fans out there noticed the cute Rapunzel Castle Bedroom Playset by LEGO we shared earlier this month.
Now, the latest addition to this classic story comes via Serena Valentino’s book “Mother Knows Best: A Tale of the Old Witch” released on August 7th. Our giveaway of this book and the 4 that preceded it comprise the Disney VILLAINS series.
Inside the Magic was provided a copy of “Mother Knows Best: A Tale of the Old Witch” and we loved it. In fact, my daughter has already claimed the book as her own. In her words:
I can’t wait to get home from school so I can read more of “Mother Knows Best.” I have always loved “Tangled” and this book helps to understand the story of Rapunzel more.
While you may know the classic version of the story, there are always two sides to every tale and “Mother Knows Best: A Tale of the Old Witch” reveals how Mother Gothel became one of Disney’s most iconic villains.
About the Book
Here’s the story description, via Disney Press:
The tale of the legendary golden flower is widely known. The story has been told many times and in many ways. But in every version, the flower is coveted by an old witch to keep herself young and beautiful. The flower is always 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. So what of the old witch, Mother Gothel? Where does she come from? And how does she come across the magical golden flower?
This book recounts a version of the story that has remained untold for centuries…until now. It is a tale of mothers and daughters, of youth and dark magic.
It is a tale of the old witch.
