Late last year, I heard that the team that brought us “Tangled” and “Wreck-it Ralph”, two of my favorite films ever, where bringing out a musical animated film based on “The Snow Queen”.  Here we are a mere few weeks from the film released date, titled “Frozen”. The film is already a merchandise giant and it is isn’t even out yet. I always own two other “Frozen” books besides this one now and there are at least another 10 different ones.  I love that Disney is really backing this title and I know that they are also not stupid cause this film is a cash cow. It introduces us to a new Disney princess and we all know how big Rapunzel from “Tangled” has become. If you have young kid, like myself, especially a girl then this is a great book to own to get you excited for the film.

The illustrations in this are so amazing. I love the look of the two sister’s Anna and Elsa. The colors are gorgeous and presented so beautifully. I expected the illustrations to be amazing since it was done by by one of the artists who worked on the film itself.  The story tells a new original story about Anna and Elsa and the challenges of finding a sister more like me.  The words flow so well page to page using rhymes and is so sweet. My 16 month old daughter brought this book over to me once we got it and said “Ok”, which means “Read me now!…please”. I read the entire 32 page book and she didn’t move once. I can’t wait to see this film and I am sure it is going to be yet another instant Disney classic. I also can’t wait to see what else Disney Press has planned for “Frozen”, keep ’em coming.
