I can still remember the first movie I ever saw at the cinema in Farnham. It was the Disney classic, Snow White. I sat spellbound throughout and it’s a memory that’s stayed with me for well over 40 years. To celebrate this and so many other classics we’ve been looking through some of the wonderful Parragon Books Disney Movie Collection of hardback books.
The Jungle Book is one of the first Disney films that Monkey watched when he was really small and it’s been a favourite ever since. He loves the story of Mowgli, the little baby who appears lost in the jungle. A boy who grows up raised in a family of wolves, but is the prey of the evil tiger Shere Khan. The Parragon Books Disney Movie Collection book The Jungle Book, follows Mowgli and his journey through the jungle. With beautiful illustrations taken from the film we watch as Bagheera the black panther tries to protect him from the likes of Shere Khan and Kaa the cobra. It’s a beautiful book, and a great accompaniment to the film.
If you like your Princess style movies then I’m sure you’ll have watched Cinderella and Tangled. I loved Cinderella as a child, and always wanted to wear the ball gowns that she got to wear to the ball. Oh, to be 6 again! Tangled is actually a new one for me. I know the story of Rapunzel but hadn’t heard of her continuing adventures with Flynn Rider. Will her dreams come true?
The Parragon Books Disney Movie Collection The Lion King, is another beautiful book. We both love this story and the film. It’s something I definitely want to see in the West End too. The book is a lovely precis of the film which tells the story of Simba, the cub destined to become King. It’s going to be treasured here I’m sure.
The Parragon Books Disney Movie Collection really are lovely books, the sort of books that would make special presents and are great for bedtime reading. I’m going to be a Great Auntie in September and I think my great-niece will love the Cinderella book in the years ahead.
