**Disclaimer – I received these books for review purposes from the Disney Book Group. All opinions are my own.

Story time is always a favorite in this Neurotic Disney home. NDK (Neurotic Disney Kid) is old enough to read, but not too old to still be read to! Books are wonderful on so many levels. We keep them everywhere – even in the car! Disney Books are a great way to keep Disney at home. Disney Book Group was kind enough to send these books for NDK approval – be sure to look for the NDK Review after the description of each book!

Week two of summer vacation 2015 is underway. This week, we are happy to share two great sets of Disney Junior preschool book sets and a brand new Mighty Marvel chapter book on an upcoming new movie! These books can be found on shelves and online TUESDAY, June 16, 2015!

Perfect for little hands or new readers, this set, which is also housed in a fun box with a handle, is great for on-the-go reading fun! Easy enough to take with you on vacation or in the car!

The NDK Review: These book are really cute, very easy to read, short stories! I like how they are in a box. It’s so easy to take them in the car or maybe to the park. The stories are fun. I like how they included all of Sofia and Mickey’s friends! I really enjoyed Snap Goes the Camera from Meeska-Mooska Tales. Minnie Mouse took pictures of funny things! My favorite from Sofia’s Princess Adventures was Magic Class. It teaches when you use patience and go slow, things get done better. You may not make a mistake and get frustrated. Practice makes perfect!


  • Ant-Man: Zombie Repellent
  • Page Count: 128 * Price: $5.99
  • A Mighty Marvel Chapter Book Series

ant-man zombie repellentIn another edition of the Mighty Marvel Chapter Book Series comes a story just in time for the release of Marvel’s newest summer film, ANT-MAN. I love this series of books! They have just the right amount of “action” in the story to keep even the most discouraged reader interested! The story features full color images and character dialogue on select pages (similar to a comic book). Add all of this into a chapter book story, and your Mighty Marvel fan will be hooked! With the importance of summer reading on everyone’s agenda, these books are well worth it!

From the back of the book:

Breaking news: ZOMBIES ATTACK!

As the Astonishing Ant-Man, Scott Lang can communicate with insects and SHRINK to the size of an ant. Although these may not seem like the most impressive powers, his bug skills come in handy when no mighty hammer or Vibranium shield can fend off a deadly virus that has started to spread through New York City. The outbreak originates in Central Park, transforming ants into living zombies. At first, the outbreak seems small, just like the ants. But with just one tiny bug bite, the virus spreads to humans, growing into a HUGE EPIDEMIC! Even some of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes become infected! This means it is time for the smallest hero to step up and bite back – or risk falling to THE LIVING UNDEAD!

The NDK Review: Zombies! These guys are scary! This was a good story. There are a lot of great pictures in this book. I almost feel like I am watching the show. If you like zombies and super heroes, then you will like this book. Even though it scared me, I still read the whole book! I had to find out if Ant-Man saves the day! Ant-Man is really cool.
