Based on the 1998 Disney film "Mulan" and the story "Fa Mulan" by Robert D. San Souci
Set in ancient China, this story of adventure, courage and bravery is one for all ages. The story begins as Mulan's big day with the village Matchmaker is wrecked by her nervousness, thereby dishonoring her family, making herself feel terrible.

The story continues as Mulan heroically saves the army from attack then masterminds a plan to rescue the kidnapped Emperor. Mulan is honored for her bravery and now has restored the honor to her family!
