Calling all kids, parents, animal lovers and Disney fans, we have a fun surprise for you! It’s just the perfect thing to share with your family during the upcoming holiday weekend, summer vacation road trips, or whenever you’re singing the post-Disney-depression blues. If you’re a big fan of Jamie Cosley’s Wally D comic strip, Nuts 4 Disney, in WDW Magazine, you’re going to LOVE this giveaway!
Our pal Krista at disneyways.com (did you catch her latest video for us?) told us all about a terrific series of books – totally written and illustrated by two Disney loving brothers who are only 10 and 12 years old! In fact, they published their first book at 9 and 11. Read our review below, then find out how you can enter the cutest. giveaway. EVER!
The Adventures of the Animals…
Tyler Reich and Austin Reich have created a really neat series of books based on the concept of imagining the daily life of those cute little animals you see around the parks. No, I’m not talking about those little baby zebras at Animal Kingdom! You know, the natural wildlife like birds and bunnies that inhabit little corners of the park. Not sure what I mean? Check out this instagram channel for a glimpse into the glamorous life of a WDW bunny!
Speaking of bunnies, the Reich’s first book, The Adventures of the Rabbits in the Most Magical Place on Earth, is all about Rebecca Rabbit and her adventures as she explores her home in the Magic Kingdom. We don’t want to give too much away but you’ll find out how she navigates the park, what happens when she hops a little to far from home, makes some friends, and is reunited with her family. Tyler’s colorful drawings add a great visual element to Austin’s sweet story – this is an easy book for kids to read, or even follow along with the pictures.
Second in the series is The Adventures of the Squirrels in the Most Magical Place on Earth. Here, we find out that Sammy Squirrel has been globe-trotting around World Showcase with his siblings and pals in search of that most tasty snack – fries! (Perfect for #SnacktasticMay if you ask us!). Along the way, Sammy meets a little boy who needs some cheering up and goes to work to bring a smile to his face. This account of showing kindness to a stranger is one we all should read!
The stories are cute and fun, but if you like some practical advice there’s plenty of that too. The end of each book includes a few pages with tips from Tyler and Austin about their favorite WDW tips! It’s not often you see advice from kids, so this is a pretty great feature.
Up next in the series is an Animal Kingdom story – The Adventures of Lions in the Most Magical Place on Earth!
