off the shelf: where is brainy?

Here is another one of my favorite books that I would like to tell you about. Mum got me this pre-loved Smurfs book from one her Facebook groups late last year. I was on a Smurfs-mania that time and was watching the Smurfs movies one after another. I was also playing with my Smurfs Happy Meal toys then.

Where Is Brainy? is a book filled with pictures that are filled with the cute and blue smurfs + their everyday adventures + misadventures. In each picture, the readers should locate the whereabouts of one famous Smurfs character, Brainy. He is easier to spot that most of Papa Smurfs children because he is wearing a pair of glasses. You will more often see Brainy’s head buried in a book or busy reading in his hut. Some photos also feature the Smurf’s enemy, the bad wizard, Gargamel.

Off The Shelf: Disney Planes

children's books, books, my favorite things, collections, kids reading, reading

Mum + I were off to the mall one afternoon after school for some errands when I asked if we can drop at the toy section. No mall visit was ever complete without dropping by this part of the mall. No, I do not buy toys all the time, but I enjoy browsing through the display of latest toys and spend time checking for my favorites, like die-cast cars, action figures, among others.

While doing her own browsing mum stumbled into these books that are up at discounted price that day. Planes is one of my favorite films, so we opted for this Disney Planes book, which we got for half the original price! A great deal, right?

This book tells the story of the first Disney Planes film. It introduces us to a crop duster, Dusty Crophopper, who has big dreams of joining the Wings Across the Globe race. Many people laughed at his seemingly impossible dream but Dusty never gave up. He joined the qualifying rounds but failed to make the cut, but one stroke of luck got him in the race and went on to race around the globe along with his idol, Ripslinger, and popular racers like El Chupacabra, Ishani, Bulldog, + Rochelle. With the help of his friends, Chug + Dotty, and his mentor, Skipper, Dusty went on to win the championship to prove that anyone who does not give up on their dreams is bound to achieve them one day.

Planes is a spin-off of another popular Disney franchise, Cars, which is my most favorite! A sequel to the first film was also shown not too long ago, it was called Disney: Fire and Rescue.

Reading about one of my favorite films is such a great way to pass the time. This is my current bedtime read. What is yours?
