This is not a small book, it's big and by golly it's beautiful too. Lavishly illustrated it tells you all you need to know about the stars of the animated shorts, television and, of course, the features; from Snow White to Hercules. When I bought my second copy (to keep up to date) I was pleased to see that Mr Grant had included films such as "Who Framed Roger Rabbit", "Duck Tales: The Movie - Treasure Of The Lost Lamp", and "James And The Giant Peach", films that could have been easily excluded. But no, Mr Grant clearly loves his subject material and he conveys that through excellent reviews and observations. Each feature has several sections devoted to it; a credit list, a plot synopsis, a review that looks at the response the film received when it opened and, as you'd expect from the title, a look at all the characters involved. The Shorts section is as well written as is the television chapter. If there's a bad point to this book it's that you really need to buy it again and again as it is updated but when you read it you'll find it's a small price to pay. If you enjoy Disney's animated output this is the book you really ought to have ... it is a bargain.
