In this lush nonfiction volume — rich with archival photographs, animation cells, historical references, and first-person accounts — readers get a personal, behind-the-scenes look at the man and creative empire who presents the work of leading picture book creators to young people and librarians via the medium of film.

Trailblazers in the children's entertainment industry, Mort Schindel and Weston Woods have, for decades, introduced kids to Maurice Sendak, Rosemary Wells, Mo Willems, and many other notables.

Mort Schindel and Weston Woods rival Walt Disney and the Disney studios as forerunners in the creative development and delivery of content for children. Trade has been granted the opportunity to produce this intriguing book to celebrate an important legacy during Mort Schindel's 90th birthday year.
