This book was our first introduction to the series of Disney books telling the story behind the making of the movies. After reading it and viewing the wonderful color images, we had a new appreciation for the movie, the animator's views of the characters, the initial sketches and characters that never made it into the movie, and the tremendous amount of work that went into it. Since this was the first of the totally computer generated animated Disney classics, this book could very well become a much sought after collector's item.

Highly recommended by us.
