Review:

"Truly written with a young audience in mind, this hefty, encyclopedia-style tome is jam-packed with beautifully reproduced movie images presented in stunning large-size format or artfully arranged in eye-catching layouts along with brief explanatory narrative and captions. The book begins with a summary of the company's creation, a step-by-step flow chart of how Pixar movies are made, and a time line. Next, each Pixar film (including Monsters, Inc., Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Cars, Wall-E, Up, and more) is introduced in a sizable entry that covers plot basics, characters, and settings. Final spreads cull from all of the movies to highlight various themes (e.g., friendship, villains, etc.) and present behind-the-scenes facts about each production. Brief bios and photos of real Pixar employees are sprinkled throughout, inspiring future filmmakers. With plenty of visuals to look at and lots of interesting tidbits to discover, this is one of those reference works that will draw kids into the library again and again to explore its pages." --School Library Journal, September 21, 2009

"[A] lavish, full-color, kid-friendly roundup of everything Pixar. It ranges from a brief history of the company to hints on finding the inside jokes and references in each Pixar film -- and everything else in-between! In fact, calling it "A Complete Guide to the World of Pixar... And Beyond!" may actually be selling it a bit short. ... Many of these spreads are poster-worthy! [O]ne of the best coffee-table books ever produced for an audience too young for coffee." --ComicsWorthReading.com, October 3, 2009
