Booklist Review: "Solomon's history reaches back to 1645 and moves on to the computer animation and graphics that are currently revolutionizing the animation industry. In 1803, says Solomon, children snitched money from moms to stay up late and watch the ghost and horror lantern shows. Almost 200 years later, screen displays are still entrancing children (and adults). The author's focus is on the people who transformed this industry, particularly those in the twentieth century. The work of Disney is given due attention, but so are the talents of other artists and studios. Solomon introduces the creators (and animators) of Jiminy Cricket, Betty Boop, Popeye, Superman, Woody Woodpecker, and Roger Rabbit, among other superstar characters. The finished book will include more than 500 illustrations, with some 300 in full color. --Denise Perry Donavin"
