    Without giving too much of the plot away (I can't wait to see the movie!), this is a tale based on Polynesian mythology and folklore. In an ocean populated by humans, demigods, and monsters, one teenage princess must learn how to find a way for her people to survive -- and thrive -- in perilous times. This epic adventure is sure to please all lovers of mythology and fantasy. The heroic quest has a happy ending -- but not without some close calls along the way. Highly recommended for Disney and m Without giving too much of the plot away (I can't wait to see the movie!), this is a tale based on Polynesian mythology and folklore.

    It could just be because this was a novelization for kids, but the story seemed to lack depth. There were a few cool things about it, and I'm sure it's going to be a very pretty movie, based on the descriptions and the pictures, but it's pretty shallow. Particularly the...*ahem* "strong" female character. She...helps a man with his problems. Basically. I don't know, it just didn't ring any bells with me. I'm sure lots of people will like the movie, but there's no way it's reaching Frozen levels, It could just be because this was a novelization for kids, but the story seemed to lack depth.

    The novelizations hardly ever follow the finalized film to the letter, so perhaps the movie itself won't be as annoying as this book. While there were some charming moments and the climax was actually quite good, the beginnings are about as cliche as you can get in the strong heroine genre of Disney. In fact, it felt more like a Pacific island-based ripoff of Pocahontas or The Little Mermaid than an original plot - though at least Pocahontas and Ariel didn't spend the first half of their stories The novelizations hardly ever follow the finalized film to the letter, so perhaps the movie itself won't be as annoying as this book.

Still, a male-female team each with skills to offer, without a hint of romance, is nice to see, and there are a few cute lines.

    I wanted to read this book because when I saw the trailer for the movie I still had no clue what it was about. Even though this is a junior novelization, I found it to be very confusing in some parts and had to reread those parts to figure out what they were talking about. The story and moral is the same as in most Disney stories, just with different characters and setting. I love stories about powerful women, but I don't think they always need to be at odds with their fathers or family to prove I wanted to read this book because when I saw the trailer for the movie I still had no clue what it was about.

And most of all, it didn't solve my problem of whether to spend the money on a movie ticket.

    Not a bad book, but a best it's supplemental to the movie. Great to read to kids who love the movie! But it also didn't really add anything. And, if for some reason you read this before you saw the movie, you would definitely find it to be lacking something. Basically, this book doesn't tell Moana's story. This book describes what happens in the movie that tells Moana's story. And obviously there's no music in the book, and that literally cannot be helped; but there's an emptiness you feel when Not a bad book, but a best it's supplemental to the movie.

And obviously there's no music in the book, and that literally cannot be helped; but there's an emptiness you feel when you get to moments where there are fun set piece songs and instead you get, well, nothing. BUT- perfect if you have a kid eager to be read longer stories while one is still content with much smaller books. We read it over the course of a few weeks or so, usually one chapter/scene a day.

    My daughter loved having this read out loud to her! My only complaint is that it didn't have the songs, lol! It's just a novelization of the movie, but since it was such a great movie it was worth reading it aloud to my girl.

    I loved this book so much. It was such a great introduction to the movie that was released. I loved the illustrations and how vibrant the colors were. I love how Moana was such a strong young girl who had a goal and went to reach for it despite people telling her that she could not.

The land is dying and the fish are gone. Legend says that if the Heart of Te Fiti is restored to its proper place, then things will return to normal. With the help of a disgraced demi-god, and a rooster who's a few eggs short of a dozen, Moana is determined to return the Heart to Te Fiti. From coconut warriors, to the great crab Tamatoa, and sentient lava, Moana faces many challenges on her quest, yet the greatest is getting Maui to agree to help her. Seeing that this book is a novelisation of a movie created by Disney, it comes as no surprise that similar elements may crop up. To wit- Tala and Moana’s journey of the ship cavern reminded me that Rafiki and Simba going to the hidden pool. Gramma Tala herself is very Rafiki-like with her eccentric behaviour. ”Why are you acting weird,” asked Moana ”I'm the village crazy lady. It's my job,” replied Gramma Tala. Gramma Tala is awesome! I love that this book (and movie) showcased a strong and determined female lead, with no love interests at all. Strong female leads are rare in Disney, and even those that immediately come to mind (Mulan, Princess and the Frog) had some sort of romantic theme. In addition, this is a tale focusing on an oft ignored subset of humanity- Oceania. I was so happy when the movie came out because it combined all of these wonderful elements in one movie. There were minor misspellings, leaving letters out (ex: through becomes though), and homophone errors. They were few, but I feel the distinction is important for younger readers who may pick up erroneous associations. 🎻🎻🎻🎻 Highly recommended.

    Watch the movie instead This is essentially the script in narrative form. It misses all the magic of the movie. The descriptions of the songs are amusing.

    I like the story of Moana, but I wasn’t a fan of this novelization. The story stayed mostly true to the movie, but it was perfunctory and lacked heart. There were lush descriptions for setting details but sparse descriptions for character motivations. Considering that this was a junior novelization, the vocabulary was often advanced. I found it odd to have an illustrated children’s book typeset in large, 14 point letters, using words like “maneuvered” and “bioluminescent”.

I believe she enjoyed it more than I did, which is why I give it an extra star. After all, I’m not the novels target demographic.

    I was excited to get this because I finally got to see the movie on a plane this summer and it was fantastic! Now I can maybe encourage some little girl to read the story, instead of watching it. This includes color "stills" from the movie too. It's just such a great story. I love it. It's as funny as the movie (well, okay, maybe not quite). The only thing i regret is that it doesn't include music.

    Sam says: I like all of it. Amelia says: Moana was and how even Maui when he didn't want to do it he's like stick for Moana and the one that was able to calm down the monster so she could do what she knew was right even when her parents told her not to do it for her safety
