'The book is terrific. Beyond being a textbook, it strikes me as being a very rich resource for animators and film-makers ... The material is serious yet highly approachable ... The book is a bargain, especially as an academic text.' -- Thomas Castillo, University of Arizona, USA.
'Intelligently organized and lavishly illustrated, The Fundamentals of Animation is distinguished from most how-to-animate guides for being multidimensional in approach and multivalent in function ... Wells's book teaches its users not only to do, but to think animation.' - Victoria Meng, Animation Journal, 2006.
'Very impressed. Seems clear and concise. I think my students will find it very useful and informative. Visually pleasing with bite-sized bits of information.' - Tom Ingham, Cambridge School of Visual and Performing Arts, UK.
'A good introductory text to animation. Very useful tips on creating characters and storylines. Practical tutorials to engage students in practice. Well designed. Very readable language.' - --Victor Valbuena, Republic Polytechnic, Singapore.

I have just bought a copy of this book since I was looking for a book just like this for quite a while. Despite having a plain and ordinary looking front cover, inside the book is backed with an A-Z of animation. I am only just starting to read parts of it, since there is plenty of info to pick from but I seems very helpful. I bought this book because it explains each stage of the animation process in immense detail, from idea and conception, to research, development , technique and execution. It is a helpful practical book to help you realise your ideas, well worth price.

This is a good pickup for the introduction of the animation set that AVA books has to offer. There are brief projects to try throughout the series, and more hints on approaching the career in obtaining a masterful grasp of the craft. The whole series is more about opening one's mind to a new way of thinking that is relevant to the field of animation. The series does provide a plentiful amount of gems that are not in any other books on the subject, and it also covers some reiterations, yet at times they are more reinterpretations. The picture qualities in all of these provide excellent sources to extrapolate inspiration and references.
