"The Secret of The Sword" adaptation #10

Riding high on the success of their numerous Masters of the Universe and Princess of Power books, Ladybird decided to turn the animated He-Man and She-Ra feature, "The Secret of The Sword", into a book! The book was filled with actual stills from the movie and is very nicely presented throughout. Here are the remaining four pages of the adaptation...

Too bad that the ending seemed rather "rushed" ... Would have liked to see an image of Trap-Jaw and Tri-Klops or that nice panning shot of the villains along with the captured Adora. Hordak's powerful exclamation, "One battle does not win a war," should have been included as well. At least there are some great shots of Skeletor with Hordak, and He-Man and She-Ra hugging. The image of the villains dressed as cooks was an amusing inclusion, too. :) Thanks for reading and God Bless! ~"KevyGuy" :)

Shockingly, I didn't own a copy of this book until 1999! It's a very nice little adaptation, though, and the cassette that came with the book is also very enjoyable! (I didn't get that until 2000!) :)

Ladybird did a few of these in a similar style - I vividly remember the one for Transformers: The Movie, which had a great illustration of Hot Rod on the front cover! :)

One of my favourite Ladybird books.

They certanly used good quality stills for the pictures.

One of my favourite films. Not just because it is He-man and She-Ra but one of the memories i have is sitting with my sister after hiring out the VHS copy. Always kinda sad when you see the most powerful man in the universe shed a tear!

I always thought it was a shame that Adora didn't make any visits to Eternia despite the fact that Adam went to Etheria all time time. She's like that annoying relative that complains that she never sees her family and yet can never get into the car (in this case, portal!) to go and visit.
Some scenes between her and Teela would have been interesting!!!

Now this is interesting. I had no idea that this book even existed! Guess I'll go hunt it down on ebay or something - with any luck someone will have a copy in decent condition. The bunch of chefs make me laugh, all looking the same in some kind of Eternian Royal Chef costume - just like Chef Alan on Orko's birthday! I wouldn't put it past Mattel to make Chef Alan into a classics figure, by the way, wouldn't that be bizarre?!
