Disney Parks Presents Pirates of the Caribbean by George Bruns & Xavier Atencio
Reviewed by Mike Kenny
Following the ghoulish storybook interpretation of The Haunted Mansion, Disney Parks Presents Pirates of the Caribbean submerges readers into the boisterous depths of the famed attraction where dead men tell no tales. Led by lyrics to the beloved song “Yo Ho (A Pirate’s Life for Me)” by Disney legends George Bruns and Xavier Atencio, Mike Wall’s stunning new illustrations capture the adventure and magical anarchy of those treasure-hunting scoundrels, reformatting the thrills of the ride for a new medium with no line waiting required. Similar to its previous entry in the Disney Parks Presents series, a bonus CD containing the famed track is also included for young deckhands to play as they read along. Yet another imaginative way to relive Disney’s one-of-a-kind park experiences with hopes of many more volumes to follow based on other popular attractions, Disney Parks Presents Pirates of the Caribbean marks the spot on bookshelves where riches of enjoyment can be dug up.
