Booklist Review: "Disney books tend toward shameless promotion or intractable hostility, so a critical but fun examination of the mouse empire is welcome. Critical here refers to examining plot inconsistencies, bloopers, and background stories in Disney movies from Snow White to The Hunchback of Notre Dame. The original stories on which the scripts were based, significant Disney-version departures, and theme-park attractions based on each movie all get attention, but of surpassing value are "strange reactions" to the movies. For example, the NAACP picketed Song of the South, and that shocked Uncle Walt; now, which reaction was strange is an open question. Another surprise: contemporary reaction to Sleeping Beauty and the changes at Disney in its wake; now generally considered a Disney classic, the film was an ungodly long time a-making, got some hostile reviews, and barely broke even in first release. With a background narrative supplying historical context and such boxed features as a Disney Tragedy Trivia Quiz and the Orphan-O-Meter for passing amusement, consider this a must for Disneyphiles. --Mike Tribby"
