We received Mira, Royal Detective – The New Royal Detective to review. This is a 40-page hardcover book from Disney Press that features the newest Disney Junior character.
From Disney: Before Mira became the first young girl to be Royal Detective of Jalpur, she was just a townsperson with an eye for detail who liked helping her friends. Mira uses all her senses-eyes, ears, and sometimes nose!-to find clues that others might have missed. One day, Queen Shanti happened to observe Mira find a missing baby goat, and she was so impressed that she appointed Mira to be Royal Detective. With her new detective coat and magnifying glass, Mira has the tools and the skills to help people all over Jalpur. Mira is on the case!
The New Royal Detective is a good introduction for kids to Mira. It introduces the title character, friends and family, her mongoose sidekicks Mikku and Chikku and the fact that she loves to solve mysteries. She also becomes a royal detective in the book.
While The New Royal Detective feels more like an introduction to Mira, kids who have been watching the show will enjoy the book by author Becca Topol too. Mira solves a mystery, helping to find a goat. And the illustrations are nicely done by illustrator Parvati Pillai.
