Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse and the World to Come Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge

Around the World in 80 Bucks Disney's Hero Squad
Gr 3—6—In the first book, Mickey and his pal Eega Beeva fight The Rhyming Man to rescue Minnie Mouse and to save the country of Illusitania and the world. Mickey's universe has been brought up-to-date with laptops and cell-phone text messaging. However, the people of Illusitania speak with a foreign accent, which seems to suggest a bygone era. In Uncle Scrooge, Scrooge McDuck and his nephew Donald Duck accept a dare from Scrooge's rival John D. Rockerduck. In Hero Squad, the Disney Ultraheroes, organized by Mickey Mouse and Eega Beeva, fight their enemies Emil Eagle and the Sinister 7 to stop them from building the catastrophic Ultramachine. Short stories on how two of the Disney characters became Ultraheroes are appended. Each of the books has previews of Disney, Pixar, and Muppets graphic novels published by BOOM Kids! Disney fans, both children and adults, will enjoy these graphic novels.—Marilyn Ackerman, Brooklyn Public Library, NY
