My four year-old son and I appreciate the many levels in this book: literary inspiration, artistic inspration, the movie story, and behind the scenes are the chapter headings. This book is a great insight into the creation of a Disney film; as well as a platform for discussing the Disney-fication of a historical story (the validity of different interpretations, etc.). The book offers the views of many people involved in the project. Pam Coats, the producer, discusses maintaining sensitivity to Mu Lan's position as a girl in that historical context; while Chen-Yi Chang, a character designer from Taiwan, focused on the authenticity of the Chinese architecture, history, costuming, and traditions. The book is also beautifully produced -- I imagine my son reading it to his children, as I read him treasured books from my childhood.

Another good book on a Disney classic. Full of wonderfull drawings, sketches and animation concepts and background designs. I always buy the "Art of" books Disney puts out on each of their new films. It's always a treat to see how concepts of characters and backgrounds changed as they went along. Sometimes for the better, and sometimes not. Being an artist myself, I always enjoy seeing the drawings of the rough animation and characters studies. It's nice that they included some photos of the original source material from China in the front of the book. This again shows how far Disney's team goes to research a subject. The information and research shows up on the screen. And besides, the books pretty cheap, so you can't go wrong. My only complaint is that it could have been a slightly bigger book page wise.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great summary of the disney movie! 9 July 1998
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This children's storybook is a shortened version of the movie, packed between two hard covers. The wonderful pictures are in full color and relive the movie's magic. A great addition to the disney classic storybook collection that every Mulan fan should have.

5.0 out of 5 stars A winner for your young Mulan lover 9 Jan 2010
By M. Bohrer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My 3 year old daughter is enraptured with the character of Mulan from the Disney movie of the same name..... This Christmas I gave her a Mulan "Barbie" doll and the miniature Mualn figurine from disney (both winners too!). Right after Christmas she mentioned wanting a book about Mulan. I couldn't find one at my local (Barnes and Noble) bookstore so I went online and saw several. I picked this one as it appeared to be the "official" Disney story, meaning the drawings would be the same as in the movie... Well it is all that! It's bigger and thicker than the usual disney books you see in the bookstore (that are square-ish and thin). It takes about 30 minutes to read the whole thing aloud, so it makes a good bedtime read. Anyway, my daughter LOVES her new book and has been sleeping with it beside her every night (next to the two mulan dolls). I think that this book was well worth the money ($11 with shipping I think), which I thought was very reasonable for the size and quality of the book.
5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 19 May 2014

This is a wonderful book, which features not only the Disney version of the story, but also the original poem that inspired it and information on the making of the film, with beautiful art and interesting facts, it would go very well with "The Art of Mulan". It's also a good book for introducing younger children to the art of animation (other than actually showing them animation). As an animation student, animation has always been my passion and I'm pretty sure if I had had the chance to look at books like this as a child, it would only have made me even more enthusiastic about it, so I highly recommend it.

I ordered a used copy and, as described, it did have some tears and creases but nothing too serious and it's definitely great value for less than $2.
