The publisher Penguin Random House contacted me a few days ago to make me aware of the new book for kids, I Am Walt Disney. The other books in the series are a pure delight so I have a feeling this one may be too.

I will post a review and a few interior pages as soon as I get it next week. In the meantime, here is the blurb I got from the publisher:

[We are pleased to announce "I am Walt Disney," the 18th picture book in the New York Times bestselling "Ordinary People Change the World" series of biographies about heroes. This book, by best-selling author Brad Meltzer and illustrator Christopher Eliopoulos, tells the story of Walt Disney, who made dreams come true. This friendly, fun biography series focuses on the traits that made our heroes great--the traits that kids can aspire to in order to live heroically themselves. Each book tells the story of one of America's icons in a lively, conversational way that works well for the youngest nonfiction readers and that always includes the hero's childhood influences. This volume features Walt Disney, who makes dreams come true for himself and countless kids around the world.]
