You know the story of Snow White, but do you know how the Wicked Queen became so villainous?
Now’s your chance to dive into the backstory of one of the fiercest Disney Villains, told from her perspective. This tale examines the life of the Wicked Queen and uncovers what makes Her Majesty so vicious. Perhaps the creepy looking man in the magic mirror isn’t just some spooky visage – he may play a much bigger part in her wicked ways!
“I think Disney fans will enjoy all the little nods to the original animated film,” says author Serena Valentino. “I love really getting to know these characters and exploring why they did the evil things they did. I love dreaming up the backstories of characters I have loved since I was young and finding ways to make them feel more real and relatable.”
This dark tale is the first book in Serena Valentino’s successful Villains series which gives Young Adult readers and above more insight into how evil is made, not born. For a limited time, a free download (available only in the US) will be available from April 20 through April 26, via Disney Books.
