Description From the Publisher: I am the creator of Mickey Mouse. I am Walt Disney. As a child, I had a wild imagination and a great curiosity. As I grew up, I used those qualities to become a cartoonist. Eventually, I turned these drawings into films and began my own animation business. One of my characters, Mickey Mouse, became so popular that movie theaters sold out and I won an Academy Award. After pursuing a career as a film producer, director, screenwriter, voice actor, entrepreneur and entertainer, I added developer to my resume when I created Disneyland amusement park. I became tremendously successful and beloved by children of all ages because of my belief that even the impossible is possible. I am Walt Disney. To this day, Walt Disney's characters remain some of the most recognizable images in the world. With books, TV shows, films, and amusement parks devoted to his creations, the Walt Disney name lives on. Learn all about this remarkable man's fascinating life in Scholastic's biography series, I AM. My Review: Walt Disney is a name known the world over. As much for his theme parks as for his beloved cartoon characters, especially Mickey Mouse. He brought laughter and joy to millions. "I Am #11: Walt Disney" gives a biographic back-ground of Walt Disney on a level that can be understood by any age. There are photographs and interviews used to document his life. Learn of Walt Disney from his childhood to his family life and his success. Learn of the man that reminded everyone you never really loose your inner child. I found it interesting and informative. I gave "I Am #11: Walt Disney" a 5 out of 5 stars.
