REVIEW: ‘Maleficent’ Novelizations by Elizabeth Rudnick

'The Curse of Maleficent' by Elizabeth Rudnick I have long been a fan of the (junior) novelizations of the Disney family of films, so when I was offered the opportunity to read the novelization of Maleficent by Disney Publishing Worldwide, I jumped at the opportunity. What I expected was a novelization based on the film; what I did not expect were two novelizations: Maleficent and The Curse of Maleficent: The Tale of a Sleeping Beauty, both available April 29, 2014.
