The three Lords have their own page where we learn more about each of their backgrounds. My personal favorite being that of Lord Macintosh who grows apples when not fighting. I like to think this is a nod to Steve Jobs (though not confirmed).
One of the most interesting parts of the book is "The Legend" page - I won't go into much detail as I don't want to give away the story, but the photos paired with text really explained Queen Elinor's cautionary tale really well.
One of the more moving sections was the "Love & Conflict" page, where we learn of Merida and Queen Elinor's special bond as well as the natural conflict that exists between this mother and teenage daughter. Reading these pages - though brief, I couldn't help but be brought to tears thinking of my own relationship with my mom.
The remainder of the book gives away spoilers to the ending of the movie, so we'll withhold those details. Plus, if we told you everything, you wouldn't need to read it yourself! :) Be sure to pick up your copy of Brave The Essential Guide by clicking below.
Note: This book isn't just for kids, I feel it's for the kid in all of us. If you are a Pixar fan and like to collect all that is Pixar - this book is for you.
