Review: I must share that I am very bias when it comes to this one. I love Disney. Period. However, this book was even better than expected. I loved the highlight of the villains and how the book was set up as a character profile for each of them like a business resume as well as fun anecdotal information about each of them–including a lot of humor!
Teachers’ Tools for Navigation: I am so ready to use this book in my class as an argumentative or debate activity! Each section does a phenomenal job breaking down the evilness of each of the villains including their skills, possessions, education, work experience, likes, dislikes, and a random list of information about them. Using this information, students would make an argument for why their villain is the “evilest of them all.”
The book also would fit perfectly in a compare and contrast unit since each villain has the same topics highlighted.
- Which villain do you think is the evilest of them all?
- Why do you think they are more evil than ____?
- Who is the foe of _____?
- Which villain has the most impressive skills? Explain.
- How did the author use humor in the book to lighten the mood?
