The Encyclopedia of Walt Disney's Animated Characters - Reviews

Disney Books Network News

'The best reference book about Disney animation. Excellent synthesis, excellent photos, fabulous text. A must have.'

Library Journal

'Ten years after the first edition and six years since the second, Grant has again updated his mammoth illustrated guide to beloved Disney creations. . . . The ratio of information per page is high, particularly in the feature-film section where credits are followed by a history of the production and the critical and popular response, a plot synopsis, and analysis of all significant characters. The organization of the short-films section . . . is more idiosyncratic, John Grant though the writing is still a delight and not without occasional criticism of the company. . . . A peerless reference work for those countless film fans and figurine collectors . . .'

'I own an animation art gallery, and we use this book all the time for information on characters which are obscure, or to look up years of cartoons, etc. A must for Disney collectors.'
