Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Did you know that the Walt Disney studios were taken over by 700 U.S. Army soldiers who were protecting a nearby aircraft plant for eight months during World War II in 1941? Or that in 1928 Walt Disney had decided upon the name "Mortimer" for his cartoon mouse, who would later be known as Mickey, thanks to Mr. Disney's wife, Lilly? And that when Disneyland in California first opened, that it was a disaster? This slim (24 pages) biography is packed with information about the fascinating animator and creator of movies and theme parks. Large type print delivers his life's story, accompanied by primarily black and white photographs. Quotations are scattered throughout. A chronology of events in Mr. Disney's life is found near the back of the book, along with a glossary, internet sites and helpful addresses. The book would make a valuable resource for famous people or history units. It is part of the "Photo-Illustrated Biographies" series that includes titles about such famous people as Susan B. Anthony, George Washington Carver, Charles Lindbergh and Sojourner Truth. 2004, Bridgestone Books/Capstone Press, Ages 6 to 8.
