Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse Tales: Vintage tales from Disney’s most popular animated short films, ISBN 9780789324733
Five out of five stars
Creative genius is not a strong enough phrase to describe the people at the Disney entertainment company. From the first viewing of the classic “Steamboat Willie” cartoon through all the early years, they pushed the envelope and literally redefined the world of animated entertainment and engaging characters that became stars and household names.
This book contains images and lyrics from many of the short, animated films starring the classic Disney characters. Mickey Mouse and his supporting characters are the stars, but there are a few from the “Silly Symphony” series. As is always the case with Disney, the artwork is exquisite.
What is sometimes lost in the viewing of the films is the quality of the dialog. Reading it from the text will make you appreciate the rhyming structure and why it appeals to children of all ages. This is not only a book for to be read by and to children, it is a book that adults will enjoy as well. Cartoons entertain all people willing to accept them as joyful viewing.
