How much do I love a twisted fairy tale? A LOT.
Disney is releasing retellings of three of my most beloved fairy tales: Aladdin (A Whole New World), Little Red Riding Hood (Once Upon a Time: Red’s Untold Tale), and Frozen (A Frozen Heart). Today I’ve got the down-low on A Whole New World by Liz Braswell (in stores now), plus an opportunity to win a copy of the book and some fantastic extras!
What if Aladdin had never found the lamp? This first book in the A Twisted Tale line will explore a dark and daring version of Disney’s Aladdin. When Jafar steals the Genie’s lamp, he uses his first two wishes to become sultan and the most powerful sorcerer in the world. Agrabah lives in fear, waiting for his third and final wish. To stop the power-mad ruler, Aladdin and the deposed princess Jasmine must unite the people of Agrabah in rebellion. But soon their fight for freedom threatens to tear the kingdom apart in a costly civil war. What happens next? A Street Rat becomes a leader. A princess becomes a revolutionary. And readers will never look at the story of Aladdin in the same way again.
Such a cool concept, right?!
