This is the second Twisted Tale Disney book I've read (after the Sleeping Beauty one, which I didn't care for much). I was skeptical going in because the first one I read felt too modern teen-y to be the beloved fairy tale Disney made so long ago. I was worried this one would ruin Belle by making her a modern whiny teenager who said things like "oh my god" and "like" all the time. But I really liked this one!
I have to admit, it took me a while to decide to buy this book. I loved the original Aladdin cartoon movie as a child so I was naturally super excited when the live-action movie came out. I thought there was no way the new movie would be as good as the old one, especially without Robin Williams as Genie, but then I was surprised and I loved it!
