    I really enjoyed reading Bill Peets autobiography and loved all the sketches that he drew on every page to show what he was writing about One could just see Walt s big nose when he wrote that for one character he stole Walts nose Seems like Bill had hard times with Walt than he did good times, but he became a great story teller as well as an artist.

    This is a book for anyone having a crisis of purpose Bill Peet tells his life story, how he started with one dream but was persuaded by circumstances beyond his control to follow the dreams of others Only in later life do his experiences come full circle so he can realize his dream again in an unexpected way.He struggles with poverty, family issues, THE Great Depression, lousy bosses, dead end jobs, always making the best of it, pushing onward and keeping one eye on his own needs for personal and professional development To an onlooker, it seems like he had it made as a story man at Disney, but Bill reveals that even what looks like a dream job can have it s share of nightmares.This is a cathartic book, definitely worth reading as an adult in a creative workspace Life isn t MEANT to be a perfect shot to your dreams Sometimes you have dreams, you have to abandon them, and then you come back to them stronger and better for it.This is a book that is American than any biography of a self made millionaire Read this and know what it means to endure, to bootstrap, and to triumph in your own way.

    A wonderful family read My wife, 8 year old son and I enjoyed this story It has a nice message about perseverance The art on every single page made it a joy to read as a family I only wish it was a bit longer If you are aggressive you could easily finish this in very short order, as each page only has a few lines of text, and are often dominated by the artistry I suggest taking your time and really soaking in the drawings.

    I keep this book on my shelf for 6th grade students who are reluctant to read biographical stories especially boys It has a wonderful mix of drawings by the author and text that keep the student engaged not to mention that the story is fantastic Bill Peet lived in a time that allowed young people to travel and be adventurous in a way that students today are not able to The biggest comment I receive after a student has read this book is I wish I could do that But it also inspires students, especially those who love to draw doodle on everything The book is upper elementary middle school reading material it is not a picture book or learn how to draw book it is much

    Great autobiography for kids It is not boring I m reading this book with first through fifth grade kids and they will ask me is this a true story because it s really an interesting read Bill Peet worked for Disney and it tells the story about how he became an animator talks about a lot of the movies he did for Disney and has lots of pictures If you want your kids to read an autobiography this is the best one to start with If your child is interested in drawing as a career, this is a great book If your child loves Disney, he or she will love this book

    Equally cool for adults and kids a beautifully sketched, illustrated biography of a key creative in the early days of Disney features.Super enjoyable, well written, light reading one paragraph per page , with illustrations on every page.

    loved this book as a child so I had to buy it to add to my bookshelf as an adult even for kids who don t read yet the illustrations are what makes it wonderful, in addition to learning a bit from the autobiography itself

    Bill Peet was one of Walt Disney s most talented illustrators perhaps THE most talented Walt did not appreciate Bill as he should ve He tells a great story with a real life lesson And of course, the illustrations are fantastic

    Was one of my favourite authors when I was a kid.So important to read of the challenges a successful artist faces.
