Minnie Mouse is not just an ordinary character in Disney’s Universe; in fact, she is one of the most important ones. In Minnie Storybook Collection, the readers get to know how Minnie makes a difference, be it in a mystery story, a fairytale or one that takes them on a chase that ends in neither a win nor a loss.

It isn’t very easy to keep her out of the action and in all six adventures, she comes out as the winner!

With her friends Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy and Pluto, Minnie takes the readers on a journey where they had not gone before. In their first adventure in this book, The Missing Brownies, Minnie takes some fresh brownies to a party which goes missing before they could be served. Who was behind the scheme and how did Minnie and her gang solve the case was both interesting and entertaining, as everyone was a suspect!

In The Flower Mystery, Minnie again goes out in search of the person who very smartly stole a flower from her collection; in The Lost Dog, Minnie and friends go out to find Pluto who seemed to have been dog napped while under the care of Minnie Mouse. Interesting plot, isn’t it?

After these three mysteries, there is Minnie’s New Hat where she loses her favourite hat and chases it around the streets in a car while it is floating in the air. No, she doesn’t get it in the end but it ends up in a better place for sure. And finally, there are the two Minnie Mouse versions of Rapunzel and Little Red Riding Minnie where the plot deviates a little because of Minnie Mouse who likes to stands up for herself against the witch in the former and Big Bad Pete in the latter, winning the battle with the mind than force. Go, Minnie!

Each and every story in this book is as brilliantly illustrated like a Disney animated series and that’s why people can relate to the stories, as if they are watching TV than reading a book. Everything from vibrant colours, readable text and understandable language is there to make this book an ideal addition to your collection.
