From before Toy Story to beyond Up!, this one-of-a-kind encyclopedia captures all the films, shorts, characters, history, and information of Pixar Studios. Thousands of photographs and illustrations combine with behind-thescenes information to form the ultimate Pixarpedia.
Pixarpedia is great fun! All three of my kids love this book since it contains many of their all-time favourite characters. Aiden (age 9) and Owen (age 7) have especially enjoyed the in-depth look at the Toy Story characters. Olivia (age 4) got a kick out of finding all the girls from every film and pointing out the many ways they are like her. The boys went through and chose which guy they got to be for whatever imaginative game they were playing at the time. Each page is absolutely packed with interesting facts and entertaining pictures. Many times after the kids look at this book they will ask to re-watch one of the many films featured in its pages. This is a great book for any Pixar fan.
Thanks so much to DK Canada for sending me a copy of this book to review.
