Bardhan-Quallen, Sudipta Chasing Magic (Merida#1) Random House, 2016. $9.99 Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G Violence: G
Merida isn’t a typical princess that her mother expects her to be. When a
princess from a neighboring clan comes to visit, Merida feels inadequate.
Princess Cat is good at everything princessy and worst of all, very good at
Archery, which is the one thing that Merida excels at! When Cat goes missing,
Princess Merida will have to break some rules and be brave to help her.
this movie came out years ago, this is one Disney princess I can stand behind.
This series starts after the movie and does reference it a bit. I love that she
learns more self acceptance and about friendship. The cover is glossy and
mysterious and appealing, I think this series will fly off the shelves.
