Descendants: Mal's Spell Book

About the Book
For fans of Descendants, this spell book, which formerly belonged to Maleficent before she passed it on to Mal, is full of comments, notes, and inside jokes between Mal and the other villains' kids. Laugh and cry along with Mal, Evie, Jay and Carlos as they find their way in the world of Auradon Prep.

My Take on the Book
Get ready for some magic wit Mal and see some of the potions and spells that Mal will use from her famous mother to change the world. You can easily see the pain and the fun that Mal has with her friends. You also get a better sense for her mother Maleficient too. This book really lets see the characters from this series in a brand new way.

Mal is the villain Maleficent child. Her close friends are children of villains too. Jay, Evie and Carlos are her closest friends at school. 

Within the spell book, the reader will notice that is has been written in the margins with ideas, thoughts, actions, and experiences by Mal and her friends. There is humor but the reader can also hear the challenges that these young villains encounter. 

The topics in the spell book vary from using cat hair in stews, to removing hexes, using magic mirrors, and even information about the big bad wolf.

It was interesting to see photos of Mal and her friends. The photos were taken from the movie with the name DECENDANTS. 

The book is to enjoy and for the reader to have fun with, but it is not meant, in my opinion for a young child. I see my oldest daughter reading and relating to the feelings , challenges, and friend situations like the young people in the book.
