I received books to facilitate my review.
Have you had a chance to watch Disneys’s Onward film yet? We haven’t but we love to read books before watching a movie if able!
Inspired by Disney and Pixar’s film, Onward!
Calling all wacky wizards and silly sprites! Join Ian and Barley as they brave the Path of Puns and encounter ridiculous riddles and jovial jokes that would make even the most serious of centaurs neigh with delight! This hilarious joke book includes magical puns, riddles, and jokes along with fun character illustrations inspired by the movie.
Barley and Ian Lightfoot would never set out on an adventure without their Quests of Yore guide book! Based on the book featured in the movie, this guide is full of wondrous characters and creatures to meet, exciting landmarks to explore, and powerful spells to learn. It even includes Ian and Barley’s fun doodles and notes, so you can join the two brothers on their epic quest!
A magical all-new story based on Disney and Pixar’s film, Onward.
Sadalia Brushthorn is an ordinary teenage elf. She goes to school, hangs out with her friends, and dreams of becoming a journalist. But the problem is, nothing exciting ever seems to happen in her town of New Mushroomton. Sadalia wonders if she’ll ever get the chance to write a true investigative story. Then one day something mysterious, monumental, and shockingly magical erupts at her high school, sending everything into chaos. And the whole event centers on two elf brothers, Ian and Barley Lightfoot. Sadalia thinks this is her chance to finally write a real story. But there are so many questions: What caused this event? How are Ian and Barley involved? And why were they searching for a magical object known as the Phoenix Gem? It’s up to Sadalia to set out on her own in-questigation, to follow the Lightfoot brothers’ epic quest and discover the truth about the events that transformed her town and her entire world.
My take: The biggest hit by far with these books was the Magical Book of Jokes, Puns, and Gags. All 3 of my kids spent time giggling over this book. If you want a comprehensive easy to understand book that covers all the characters and spells the Quests of Yore is a great book to have. My older kids enjoyed The Search for the Phoenix Gem and appreciated the reporter viewpoint.
