A Whole New World by Liz Braswell Book Review

Aladdin and I go way back. One of my first words was Aladdin. My very first word was apparently ‘Toast’. That really says something about me that my first word is me shouting for food! Aladdin is by far my favourite Disney film. I have watched it countless times and I know every word. I’ve…

Then I see it.…
