You won't just fly, you'll SOAR when you read these enchanting new Dumbo books from Disney Publishing.

I wasn't kidding when I said I had Dumbo fever. Before we get to the books, check out 
(-->here<--) our fantastic giveaway going on in celebration. You will love these Dumbo finds which total over $90.00 in value.
I've been counting down the days to the premiere of Tim Burton's live action version of the classic film by reading three new books that celebrate everyone's favorite wide eyed pachyderm.  I was a little hesitant to read two of these because I didn't want to spoil the plot of the new movie for myself.  There are spoilers in two of the books so I'll keep my reviews general.

Non Spoiler Dumbo Book Reviews:

Disney's Dumbo Read Along Storybook and CD:

The littlest Dumbo fans in your life will adore this traditional telling of the story of Dumbo. Listen along as the CD perfectly narrates the book with character voices and sound effects. 
This book is recommended for ages 3 and up and retails for $6.99

Disney's Dumbo- by Calliope Glass:

This picture book is beautifully illustrated by Dominic Carola and Ryan Feltman.  It is written by Calliope Glass and is based on the live action film by Tim Burton.  It is a beautiful book that your children will want to keep on their book shelves to admire for years to come. This book follows the Tim Burton version of Dumbo.  My only complaint is that Timothy Q. Mouse is not part of the adventures.  He would look so cute and dapper on the pages of this picture book. This book beautifully brings to life the tale of a little dreamer who has to find his confidence within despite his differences.
This book is recommended for ages 3-5 years and retails for $16.99.  40 pages.

Dumbo Circus Of Dreams-  by Kari Sutherland:

The traveling Medici Bros. Circus is made up of a ragtag group of performers.  Everything changes when a little pachyderm named Dumbo comes into the fold.  The plot of Dumbo is different than I expected it would be.  Dumbo is the main focus of the storyline but the plot revolves more around the circus and its inhabitants   I was impressed with the overall character development and I am sure that this will be the same for the movie.  Those looking for a more traditional book might be disappointed but I found it fresh take on sweet little "baby mine."

This book is recommended for ages 8-12 years and retails for $12.99 320 pages.

Dumbo Live Action Film Synopsis:

From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the all-new grand live-action adventure DUMBO expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.
