Some of my regular readers will know that I am a Parragon book buddy and each month we get sent a different item from the range. This month Parragon have launched Paper Rocket, their new imprint for young adult fiction. It's going to feature titles from both Disney and Marvel, the fantasy, thrillers and illustrated novels written by authors like Stan Lee and Margaret Stohl will now be available in the UK under Paper Rocket. This is exciting stuff for any young reader and we have been sent one of the Disney titles.
A Whole New World A Twisted Tale is not only the first title to be published under Paper Rocket, but it is also the first titles in a thrilling series that put a twist in a much-loved tales. It explores what would happen if key turning points did not work out as planned. With Jafar in possession of the lamp and determined to break the laws of magic and gain control over love and death, the deposed Princess Jasmine and Aladdin must unite the people of Agrabah in rebellion to stop the new power-mad ruler. But their fight for freedom soon grows costly, threatening to tear the kingdom apart. The twisted tales trilogy is written by award-winning author Liz Braswell.
Mr L has been giving it a read for over the holidays, he's not much of a reader if I am honest, he prefers Anime comics. He gave the book a good go and he says it had some interesting twists that aren't in the original. Aladdin is a Disney film he is familiar with, so I think that helped with his motivation to actually rad the book. As I suspected he abandoned the book after a few days and I have passed it on to my friend's daughter, she loves to read and will speed through it. The book is available to buy now from WHSmiths for £6.99.
Thanks For Reading
