My Review: I just recently picked this book up even though it was to transition into Despicable Me 2 years ago. Munchkin loves the minions and especially this movie so figured this would be a fun one. I like how it did have a story outside of the movie plot line, though it seems like the images were taken from early storyboards for the movie and they ended up going a slightly different way in the final production. It is a great level 2 book with some new more complex words and sentence structure but still with the fun characters and story that will keep young fans reading.
