About the author
Top reviews from other countries
While the plot is set by the script and therefore outside the author's control, Elizabeth Rudnick sets a high bar for the screenwriters to live up too in every aspect of the book she has control over. In particular, her usage of thoughts develops the cast and adds depth to the story in ways the movie cannot.
The humor she adds to the book lives up to that in Disney's movies. Lines like, "Your hair is like you, Mulan. Impossible to control," is one of many amusing thoughts in the book that it will be a shame if they aren't also in the movie. In addition, while Disney decided not to bring back Mushu, the book--and presumably the movie--substitutes a bird that follows Mulan, representing a guardian phoenix. It does not talk, which leaves Rudnick the opportunity to build through Mulan's thoughts an amusing interplay between the bird and Mulan that measures up well against Mulan and Mushu's iconic interplay.
Overall, this is a novelization that tells a story on par with original middle grade novels and is entertaining to read irrespective of the movie.
