Disney at Last by Ridley Pearson - ESSENTIAL

Pearson, Ridley Disney at Last (Kingdom Keepers: The Return), 471 pages.  Disney, 2017.  $18.  

Language: G; Mature Content: G; Violence: PG (some danger).

The Kingdom Keepers are trapped back in the past in the early days of the Magic Kingdom’s opening.  They are trying to work with the now young Wayne in order to figure out and stop the plot concocted by Amery Hollingsworth to sabotage the fledgling park and create the first Overtakers.  Meanwhile, others are working in present day Disney to stop the Fairlies, controlled by one of Hollingsworth’s sons, from wreaking destruction all over the parks. 

The description seems so simple, but the book itself is very complicated and  frankly, so obscure at some points that I just wanted to throw up my hands in frustration.  It actually feels like it was supposed to be two books, but the publisher told him to wrap it up in just one.  Regardless, welcome the to finale of the Kingdom Keepers series.  Chockfull of behind the scenes Disney info and a cool glimpse into the history of the park.
