The Toy Story Films by Charles Solomon - ADVISABLE

Solomon, Charles The Toy Story Films: An Animated Journey, 185 p. Disney Editions, 2012.  $60.  

With the first little tests in the 1980's to the third Toy Story movie in 2010, the story of computer animation is as much the story of John Lassiter, Pixar and Disney as it is the story of our love affair with Woody and his friends.  Gorgeous drawings and photographs combined with extensive text give a rich picture of the films.  And who didn't cling to their seat in the theater in #3 when the toys were headed to the fire???  It is an expensive book, but well worth every penny.  I you have any kind of graphics class or film-making, this would be a great addition.  And of course kids are going to pick it up just for fun.
