Tim Hauser's The Art of Wall-E (Chronicle) provides a mesmerizing behind-the-scenes look at the movie's origin and creation, lushly illustrated with reproductions of concept art (storyboards, character sketches, and full-color pastels, and more) accompanied by production crew quotes. The coherent text traces the importance of visual storytelling in the film, which has very little dialogue, touching on silent movie comedians, pantomime acting, and the creative freedom of animation. This handsome volume will appeal to teens interested in the history of cinema, movie production, and animation, and would make an intriguing addition to classroom studies in these areas.
