**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!

NDK Review 7-21-15

As summer is winding down, I suppose it is time to start fondly thinking of cooler, fall weather and most importantly, all things pumpkin – including books! This week, on shelves in stores and online are two adorable pumpkin themed books which are perfect for little pumpkin fans everywhere! Be sure to look for these books TUESDAY, JULY 21, 2015!

  • Palace Pets Pumpkin the Puppy for CinderellaPalace Pets: Pumpkin the Puppy for Cinderella
  • Page Count: 10 * Price: $9.99

The touch and feel Palace Pet stories are a complete favorite in our home. With the fun and convenient carry handle, your little one can take Cinderella’s pet, Pumpkin, everywhere! The sturdy board pages keep the book in great condition.

From the publisher:

Take Cinderella’s puppy, Pumpkin, on the go with the new Palace Pets Touch-and-Feel Purse Book. This exciting new format is sure to become every young girl’s favorite accessory.

Pumpkin is so happy top be Cinderella’s palace pet. Follow along as she prances across a pumpkin patch to find her princess. Touch everything from a sparkling spider web to a shiny candy wrapper!

The NDK Review: I like Pumpkin, This is my favorite book from the series – the sparkly spiderweb felt amazing! I also like that the noses on each of these books are furry! These are so much fun!


Figaro's Halloween Surprise

  • Figaro’s Halloween Surprise
  • Page Count: 10 * Price: $6.99

Oh. My. Goodness. Where do I start with this book? This is a story featuring two of my all-time favorite Disney pets – Figaro AND Cleo! And who isn’t a fan of touch and feel books? The different textures throughout the story are fun! I love the idea of the Disney Tails series of books and look forward to more.

From the publisher:

Get in the spirit with Figaro as he sets up the perfect Halloween surprise for his friend, Cleo! The first in a new charming line of touch-and-feel board books, this title features an adorable new story starring everybody’s favorite black cat, Figaro, original art, and touch-and-feel elements on every spread.

A BOOtiful evening! It’s Halloween, and Figaro knows just how to celebrate – by setting up a spooktacular surprise for his friend Cleo. Follow this adorable black cat as he gets into the spirit!

The NDK Review: I like Figaro’s Halloween Surprise because they are touch and feel books. On the front you can feel Figaro’s fur and at the end, you can feel Cleo’s scales! They are nice and shiny! The pumpkin in this book uses the same material as the pumpkin in Palace Pets: Pumpkin the Puppy for Cinderella. This is a cute story for Halloween!
