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.

About the Author:

Grace Norwich has written many books for young readers on a variety of topics, including health, fashion, animals, and more. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.

From Booklist:

No matter one’s opinion of the ethics of Walt Disney and the corporation he left behind, no one can deny that he was one of America’s greatest entrepreneurs. Following an imaginary autobiographical introduction, this title in the I Am series switches to third person as it launches into Disney’s industrious life. Often misunderstood by his no-nonsense father, young Walt never succeeded academically, but he developed an early passion for drawing and cartooning. Despite numerous setbacks, including losing the rights to one of his first characters, he never gave up his dreams. This enjoyable bio provides many details about Disney’s innovations in animation, television, and theme parks, as well as a few surprises, like his studio’s armed forces–training films during WWII. A mix of archival photos and sketches add interest, even if a few photos, such as a picture of a farmhouse similar to Walt’s childhood home, seem like filler. An annotated list of people, Cool to Know facts, related places to visit, and other features further supports students’ research. Grades 3-5. --Angela Leeper
