Anna & Elsa #1 All Hail the Queen (2015)

All Hail the Queen (Anna & Elsa #1) Erica David. Illustrated by Bill Robinson. 2015. Random House. 128 pages. [Source: Library]

I enjoyed All Hail the Queen. In this first book of a new series following the events of Frozen, Elsa learns to balance work and play as she begins to reign as queen. In some chapters, Anna and Elsa get to spend some quality time together. Anna has a to-do list. There are SO MANY things she's eager to do, and eager to do WITH her sister. So much lost time to try to make up for. Most of these things has both Anna and Elsa interacting with the villagers. The depiction of Anna feels quite right. The depiction of Elsa doesn't feel right or wrong to me. (She does spend so much time in the movie isolating herself, and just a few minutes at the end after her transformation).

In other chapters, Elsa is all responsibility. The villagers have come to seek her help. It seems almost everyone wants an audience with her. It's overwhelming to her, in a way. Not to mention exhausting. Anna, I believe, is the one who points out to Anna that the people are using her, and, that she shouldn't so easily give into their pressure to use her magic to solve everything.

It's a pleasant read. For those who can't get enough of Anna and Elsa, I could definitely see the appeal!
