A Wish Your Heart Makes: From the Grimm Brothers' Aschenputtel to Disney's Cinderella, Charles Solomon's new book about the making of the 1950 animated feature and the new live-action feature has just been released.

If you bought Charles' book about Sleeping Beauty, last year, you know what to expect: a very readable volume which contains some interesting information, but not a book that has the depth of the masterpieces by JB Kaufman, John Canemaker or Michael Barrier.

In all cases, from my standpoint, three recently discovered character designs which are featured in the book would in themselves justify the purchase.

And will always remain grateful to Charles Solomon, since his book The Disney That Never Was remains the book that I most often come back to, day after day, year after year.
