Review & Ramblings: Mulan by Elizabeth Rudnick

Mulan by Elizabeth Rudnick. Published by Scholastic Australia 2020

From the first page, we are thrown into Mulans world, full speed ahead. The pacing starts off so quickly that pages are turning just as fast as Mulan is chasing that pesky chicken around her village.

Mulan, The Live-action Novelisation, is incredibly easy to read, this revamped tale has so many twists alongside the original plot, that it keeps you on the edge of your seat.

You don’t need to have any knowledge of the Mulan original story to enjoy this book. You don’t even need to have seen the Live Action adaptation. This book reads as a stand alone, more than a tie in novelisation. Meeting Mulan in this new way, brings life to her original tale and tells it in a new way for the younger generations.

Mulan: The Live-Action Novelisation, is easy to read, written in a way that honours the traditions of China yet isn’t written traditionally. This modern twist keeps pages turning and the plot evolving.

I loved watching Mulan evolve into the strong and brave woman we see at the end of this book. She wa always brave and courageous, but she wasn’t sure why or if what she dreamed was possible. Seeing her become someone that her father was proud of was wonderful.

This book is filled with non-stop action. Characters that make you smile and the courage and bravery of a young woman.
Mulan: The Live Action Novelization, is fast paced, easy to read and will sweep you up in the traditions of China.

Thank you so much to Scholastic Australia for sending me a review copy of this title. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
