    4.5 stars.Melanie Dickerson books tend to be a hit or miss with me, but I am pleased to say that this one was most certainly a hit I figured it would be, I love Mulan and even if this story didn t have Mushu, I still enjoyed it so much The characters were great Wolfgang was awesome He was a tough and fearless warrior, but don t let that fool you Wolf was just a soft little squishy sensitive spring roll He was absolutely adorable Mulan was kick butt wit...

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from THOMAS NELSON through NetGalley Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own I was a big Disney movie fan as a child Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid, The Aristocats, The Rescuers Down Under etc I was the kid that insisted that my dog always had to be there for a viewing of Lady and the Tramp I even went as Belle one Halloween and my mother made over an old bridesmaid dress that was yellow just like Belle I lived I received a complimentary copy of this book from THOMAS NELSON through NetGalley Opinions expressed in this rev...

    I don t think I have ever said this about a book before, but I truly believe that people are being to hard on this book They object to Mulan being Chinese and being dropped into Mrs Dickerson s Hagenheim world First of all, that s just it It s HER world and she can t drop everything and jump to an entirely different place totally unconnected with her series and tell a story I thought her adaption was tastefully done She gave good reason and background for Mulan s presence in Lithuania w I don t think I have ever said this about a book before, but I truly believe that people are being to hard on this book They object to Mulan being Chinese and being dropped into Mrs Dickerson s Hagenheim world First ...

  8. Heidi Robbins (Heidi Reads...) says:

    At first I thought this book would follow the story of Mulan close to the Disney version, but I soon realized that this retelling would take new twists and turns that brought a new life and energy to the story I loved the different backstory to Mulan and her family, and the interesting political dynamics between the different powers of the region that are embroiled in...
