There’s two things that you should already know about me. 1) I love Disney. I love Disney with all my heart. I’ve grown up with Disney, I have a Disney related blog name, a Disney tattoo and I never listen to regular music – just Disney songs (okay that’s a white lie but I do listen to a lot of Disney songs on a day-to-day basis). And 2) I love books. Books remain my one true love. Books brought me out of a dark place and books led me to start my blog which has brought me so much since; friends, creative freedom, self-employment and amazing opportunities to work with some wonderful brands. Like The Book People, who I’m lucky enough to work with today.
So knowing what you know about me now, that I love books and Disney, you can imagine my surprise when The Book People contacted me about a collaboration on some of their Disney books. My two loves rolled into one! So before we get into the books, a huge thank you to The Book People for allowing me to choose a whole bunch of books, including these 5 sets of Disney books as well as 3 others of my own choice (which I may also blog about at a later date – if you’re into spiritualism, minimalism and self-care then look out for that!)
The Book People have a range of Disney books which yes, mostly are for kids but they’re for kids of huge age ranges and they definitely have books which appeal to the Disney crazed adults among us too. From the range I had, I chose these 5 which I think cover a wide basis of ages and interests. Here’s what I chose and what I thought of each!
My first choice was quite easy and I chose this gorgeous Classic Collection of Winnie the Pooh tales, in a stunning box set with original illustrations. These books really are stunning, I love the bright covers and the pictures throughout the stories. If you’re a Pooh fan like me, these would make a lovely addition to your Disney collection and I’m sure we’re all a bit buzzed about Winnie the Pooh at the moment due to the new Christopher Robin film!
My next set was the Disney Princess collection, as pictured above. Clearly these are aimed at younger children, with 8 or so lines on each page and lots of gorgeous photos too. I particularly loved the glitter on the covers, for example of Rapunzel’s dress! These are really lovely books for the little Princess in your life and I actually gifted these to my cousin, who’s just older than 2. I figured she’ll love the photos and then be able to read the actual books when she’s a bit older!
My next choice was one that I’m really keen to read myself, which is The Strength of the Wolf is the Pack which is the story of The Jungle Book as based on the new movie, which you can see on the cover. I discussed Disney re-makes a bit earlier in the year and mentioned how much I loved the new The Jungle Book so I’m really excited to read it as a novel as well!
If you have a Disney / Pixar loving little one in your household then this Pixar: Big Book of Fun needs to be on your Christmas list for them this year! This book is huge and it’s packed of little stories, stickers, colouring and drawing pages and more. With your favourite Pixar films and characters like Toy Story, Monsters Inc. and Lightening McQueen gracing every page, this book will provide hours of fun and entertainment!
And finally… I decided to geek-out completely and I chose this Star Wars: The Last Jedi Visual Dictionary which includes photos and descriptions of basically the entire film from characters, droids, planets and weapons. This would be a perfect Christmas present for Star Wars fanatics! And speaking of Christmas…
You could win yourself your own bundle of the Disney books I picked, just in time for Christmas! To enter the giveaway, head on over to the RAFFLECOPTER PAGE to gain your entries! The more items you complete, the more entries you receive! Good luck!

Haha it’s hard to choose! I loved Moana 😌
books an Disney are absolutely the way to go!!!
What an amazing gift! Those Disney books look amazing, jungle book is one of my absolute favourites! Please let us know if you enjoy the book 💕 thank you for sharing
Thank you 🙂
Our boys love the Star Wars books! We read all the Winnie the Pooh books when they were little too!
Awh cute 🙂
This would be a dream collaboration! Especially now, since we’re getting ready for our little one. I can’t wait till he is old enough to enjoy some of these books. Winnie The Pooh was and still is my favorite for sure ☺️
Thanks for sharing this! 💖
Give you the perfect opportunity to read them all again too!
I love the new Jungle Book remake too – would love to read the book! These would make such a lovely Christmas gift, I have so many nieces that would love these! 🙂
They really would 🙂
THE BOOK PEOPLE!!!
I swear, my favourite day of any school year was when The Book People would arrive. I could see them turn up from my classroom, and from that moment on, I wouldn’t be able to concentrate. I was counting down the minutes until I could go and look at all the books, and make lists of all the ones I wanted. I sometime would tell the teacher I had a headache, just so I could ‘go to medical’ aka… take a slow walk through the hall and watch them set up, seeing if I could eye any titles I was familiar with.
Honestly, nothing compares.
I wish The Book People should come to places of work and do the same for adults!
I remember that from school too as it goes! They used to set up a little book shop in the hall!
Great giveaway babe!! I used adored Disney books when I was a little girl, 🌸✨
With love, Alisha Valerie x

You’re definitely never too old for a Disney classic 🙂
I absolutely love those Winnie the Pooh books! Those covers are so pretty!! 😍 I loved the videos growing up, but I never read the books. They’re ones that I would still love to read someday. 😊
I didn’t read WtP either so I can’t wait to read these! 🙂
When I lived in the UK I used to buy from The Book People quite a bit! Wonder if they deliver to the EU? Love all these gorgeous books you featured– especially the A.A. Milne selection; I know so many friends with young kids that would love this and my son would love the Star Wars book!
I’m sure they do!
Such an amazing selection of books! I am a fan of Disney and these look like good books. I will definitely be entering the competition.

This is a great list indeed! Loved the pictures. Will definitely present some to my lil one! Today I also wrote about favourite books for kids.
Thank you 🙂

Hi Jenny! Such a great collaboration. I have used the book people for years, great company. The covers of all of these books are so beautiful. Really like the Winnie the Pooh covers in particular. Simple but colourful and lovely. I’m not a huge Disney fan (although I love to watch the movies) so I will leave the giveaway for those that have bigger Disney hearts. Lovely post though and a lovely gift for your little cousin. Take care,
Miss Amy Rach
Thank you 🙂
What a gorgeous selection of books! I would have LOVED that Disney Princesses collection as a child, and that Winnie-the-Pooh set is just beautiful. I’m now wondering which of these to buy my nieces and nephews for Christmas 🙂
They’d make such lovely gifts 🙂
Oh Jenny these are honestly the most beautiful book covers I’ve ever seen; if you’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover then people have clearly never seen these ones! I’m also so glad that this collaboration allowed you to combine your love of Disney and books! xx
Haha you’re absolutely right! The Pooh books have stolen my heart with their covers and illustrations!
There’s some great ideas for my boys for Christmas here – thank you! x
You’re welcome! 🙂
Yay! This is the most perfect collab for you Jenny, books and Disney! These look like gorgeous books, I especially love the Winnie The Pooh covers, they are beautiful and would make a great addition to any Disney collection. That is so sweet to give your little cousin the Disney Princess books, what a lovely treat for her. I really enjoyed the new Jungle Book film but never knew there as a new novel to go with the story, I’ll have to check it out sometime. Thanks for sharing and I’ve just entered the giveaway too, exciting! <3 xxx

I didn’t either! I adore the new Jungle Book – the graphics are outstanding! Best of luck with the giveaway! 🙂 xxx
I adore Winnie the Pooh and those books look adorable! Also, I’m a big fan of Star Wars & know a few on my Christmas List who would also love that Star Wars book! 🙂 x
The Star Wars book is PERFECT for a hardcore SW fan!
The jungle book looks amazing, I’d definitely like to see your thoughts once you’ve read it!
My fave disney film has to be the lion king, everything about it is perfect, especially the soundtrack!
I love The Lion King but can’t watch it often because it makes me cry too much haha!
This is excellent! I love Disney so much, and yep, books too. I’ve actually never read a Winnie the Pooh book before, that Classic Collection seems the perfect place to start. I might read them to my nephew.
My favourite Disney film is Beauty and the Beast, so I definitely love the look of that picture book.
Cora | http://www.teapartyprincess.co.uk/
The new Beauty and the Beast is one of my faves too! 🙂
The classic collection of Winnie the Pooh stories is just stunning! I have the big hardback book with them all in, but the illustrations on the smaller four are gorgeous and sent me right back with a wave of nostalgia. A lovely collection of books, and some perfect christmas presents!

The illustrations are really beautiful in those books 🙂
You must have had fun choosing the Disney books and writing about them.
We are all ardent fans of Disney in my family.
May I add one of our favourites to your selection
Mary Poppins .
And also Saving Mr Banks which is based on the life of Mary Poppins creator P L Tracers.
There is going to be a release of are version of Mary Poppins on Dec starring Emily Blunt
Saving Mr Banks is one of my favourite Disney films and I’m really looking forward to the new MP in December too 🙂
I had a blue Disney book holder with all the books growing up but I’ve no idea where it is now x
That’s a shame!
This has to be your dream collab – Disney and Books, that’s amazing, I’m so happy for you! I love your choices too, Winnie the Pooh is perfect at any age and those book covers are beautiful. I haven’t heard about the Jungle Book one, I’ll have to look out for that, Flora loves the original story (and film). And that Star Wars visual dictionary would be perfect for Christmas, you’re right. I’m going to head over to Rafflecopter now – fingers crossed 🙂 xx

Good luck Lisa! It really was perfect for me wasn’t it? xxx
The Winnie the Pooh covers are gorgeous! They were my favourite books when I was growing up. I read them for hours and hours!
They really are gorgeous! 🙂
