Recommending Books to Disney Sidekicks part 2 | Disney Recommendations #6

Hello everybody! Today, I’m going to be recommending books to some more Disney sidekicks. Onto the post!


<!–more–>

LumiereRachael specially requested Lumiere to be in this post, and I think he’d enjoy the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy as he’s so charming and romantic, just like Lara Jean’s main love interest Peter Kavinsky from these books. I’m sure he’d definitely relate to him a lot and pick up some tips too! And from John Ambrose McLaren too, in the later books, I guess!

Pascal– Pascal is 100% one of my favourite Disney characters, no question. I love him! I actually really struggled to come up with a book for him, in fact, because I wanted it to be perfect since I love him so very, very much. I feel like Pascal has very similar energy to the brothers in On the Fence- he’s very protective of Rapunzel just like they are with Charlie, but he’s ultimately harmless. He’s also a proper softie deep down, so I’m sure he’d enjoy the romance in that book too!

MushuLily suggested I include Mushu in here, so even though I’ve not rewatched Mulan for ages, I decided I needed to come up with a book for him. Oddly, I think the book I just read might appeal to him. Whilst she’s from Mexican culture rather than Chinese, I think there’s a lot of similarities between him and Leo from A Dash of Trouble- both of them just want to feel like part of their families and have access to the magic they possess.

Zazu– I love Zazu so much; I think he’d hilarious. He’s pretty uppity and a bit snobby, even though he has a REALLY good heart underneath, so I think he might enjoy Secrets of a Teenage Heiress by Katy Birchall. The protagonist Flick is very similar, and just like Zazu I adore her character development!

Rajah– Like Pascal, Rajah is both hella protective of his princess and one of my fave sidekicks- I do love a good tiger. Unlike Pascal (and I apologise in advance to him), Rajah could do some SERIOUS damage to anyone he thinks poses a threat to Jasmine, so I feel like he’d want something with a bit more bite. I feel very unsure of this recommendation, but short of recommending the thing I haven’t read that I think sounds very Rajah (Nevernight, which is about assassins and very stabby according to Charlotte), I can only think of the Sorrow duology as something dark enough for him. I’m pretty sure he’d love thinking of the ways in which he’d love tearing Vespus to shreds…


Which Disney sidekick is your favourite? What do you think of my recommendations for these ones? I’d love to hear in the comments!

  1. Yay! I definitely think Lumiere would love a good romance!! I font know the other books but the reasoning sounds like you’ve got them spot on.
    I think Zazu would also like Everdark, as I think he’d sympathise with Bartholomew!x
