Disney has released a new excerpt from the latest book in Serena Valentino's Villains series, "Mother Knows Best: A Tale of the Old Witch."
Valentino writes "I will explore the back history of Mother Gothel, including her time as a young girl living in the Dead Woods with her mother Manea Queen of the Dead, and her sister witches Primrose and Hazel - and eventually leading us to the events surrounding Rapunzel. I am so exited to explore this complex and intriguing character who I personally see as one of the most frightening villains in the Disney pantheon."
