Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-7-- A fast-paced look at the life and contributions of the man who created Disneyland, Mickey Mouse, and dozens of other cartoons and feature films. Selden enlivens the facts with humorous anecdotes and a cheerful, personable writing style. Errors and inconsistencies are minor. The book lacks an index, bibliography, and master list of films, but includes a section of black-and-white photographs. Other Disney biographies include DiFranco's Walt Disney: When Dreams Come True (Dillon, 1985; o.p.), which is less detailed than Selden's; Montgomery's fictionalized, abbreviated Walt Disney: Master of Make-Believe (Garrard, 1971), for younger children; and Fisher's The Walt Disney Story (Watts, 1988), for YAs, which focuses more on Disney's film work and overall achievements than on his personal and family life. --Ann W. Moore, formerly at Lane Road Library, Columbus, OH
