:3 Mu Lan

Reader reviewed by EshInobi

This story is based on The Ballad of Mulan, a Chinese
poem. I was very intrigued the whole while, but sort of bored, as I
knew the story because of the Disney movie "Mulan". Though the Disney
movie is also a reshowing of the ballad, this book was just so related
to it as well. Well, the storyline is. It has to be, for it to be,
well, a retelling of Mulan... Anyways, I still found it interesting how
this story made Mulan more courageous to replace her father because of
his new love, and her father hadn't cared for her at first because of
the grief of the death of his first wife. The addition of Li Po, a
friend of Mulan's, was also interesting because he is an explanation of
how Mulan knows how to do the tomboy-ish things she does. It was also
interesting how there was more than one prince, but it was obvious from
when she met him that they'd eventually be together. There were some
mistakes in this book, much less the grammar than the actual story. It
was still heartwarming and lovely. <3
