Maleficent tells readers about a day in the life of an evil fairy, just in time for Halloween. It’s no surprise that she has fun scaring everyone around her, to the best of her ability. This is the second title in an all-new Level 1 World of Reading series that features Disney Villains. The first book features the Queen of Hearts, and a story about the Evil Queen is coming soon.

World of Reading 1 MALEFICENT REVIEW

World of Reading Level 1 books encourage children are one step below chapter books. With the release of Villains Maleficent, Disney Books is clearly prepping for the Halloween season. In Maleficent, the devious fairy explains what she does each day and how much power she has. She can control birds to scare other characters (shoutout to the Merryweather cameo!)

Maleficent crashes a party that the King is holding, makes some trouble and then kidnaps the Prince! In the end, Maleficent muses that she doesn’t necessarily want to go to any of the parties at the palace, she just wants to be invited to them which is honestly the most relatable things I’ve read in awhile. Maleficent is perfect for beginning readers who want a cheeky story for Halloween!
