Everyone is familiar with Mickey Mouse, Mary Poppins, and Frozen, but do they know the man behind the mouse? Born to a humble family, young Walt loved drawing pictures and entertaining people. After an early career as an advertising illustrator, he opened his own animation production company. That set him on the path to creating trailblazing animation and live-action movies and creating the studio—not to mention theme parks—that would continue to entertain children and adults alike long after his death. Filled with interesting facts and authentic photographs, this beginner biography will inspire young readers to dream big and work hard.
