Product description

Review

"The first comprehensive look at the phenomenon of Pixar...[that] successfully brings to life the band of animation enthusiasts behind "Toy Story," "Finding Nemo," and "The Incredibles," The book deserves a thumbs-up for its artful recounting of the studio's formative years ....full of fascinating characters, all struggling-in classic Pixar film style-to overcome seemingly impossible odds."
