Evil tree. Bad Apple?

Twenty years ago, all the evil villains were banished from the kingdom of Auradon to the Isle of the Lost--a dark and dreary place protected by a force field that makes it impossible for them to leave. Stripped of their magical powers, the villains now live in total isolation, forgotten by the world.

Mal learns from her mother, Maleficent, that the key to true darkness, the Dragon's Eye, is located inside her scepter in the forbidden fortress on the far side of the island. The eye is cursed, and whoever retrieves it will be knocked into a deep sleep for a thousand years. But Mal has a plan to capture it. She'll just need a little help from her "friends." In their quest for the Dragon's Eye, these four kids begin to realize that just because you come from an evil family tree, being good ain't so bad.

    the book was great and it explained things that happened before the movie like why prince Ben made the proclamation and told things that i wouldn't expect after watching the movie

        One upon a time, long, long, ago, Belle married her Beast. They gathered up all the villains and put them on the Isle of the Lost. There they were protected by an enchanted dome. No magic, no internet, no wifi, no way out. I really like this book. It combines all the Disney movies together. The main ones are Sleeping Beauty, Aladdin, Snow White and 101 Dalmatians. I love villains and this book is basically villains. Like Cruella De Vil, Evil Queen, Jafar and Maleficent. It also has adventure. The villains’ kids try to find Maleficent scepter. It is hidden somewhere on the island. They were told by someone special… read the book to find out! There’s also some chapters where the setting is in Auradon, the place where all the good people live. The main character in those chapters is Ben, son of King Beast and Queen Belle. Ben is going to be king soon. So he has to be prepared. I really like how hard it is to be future king. So if you about 10+, like evil and like adventure, you’ll enjoy this book.
