Got it free from itunes, fun book for Beatles fans, although I do wish it was more interactive. ( )

Reason for Reading: I love The Beatles and couldn't resist this homage to the fantastic film and song "Yellow Submarine".

Well, what can I say. If you loved the animated film you'll delight in this picture book. The plot of the book is a very condensed version of the film's plot, keeping the main idea but leaving out many sideplots. It *is* only 40 pages. The book's main glory is in it's illustration taken from/based on that of the film. I think parents/grandparents will be buying this one for the fun of reading it to their little ones who will certainly marvel at the illustrations and the fantastical world presented to them. The main plot centres around ridding Pepperland of the Blue Meanies but the central idea in the book to vanquishing them revolves around the theme/song "All You Need is Love". Grown ups will delight at the multitude of Beatles song titles thrown into the text such as: "Do we need a ticket to ride? asked George. "Only if we're taking the mystery tour," Ringo joked." and there is plenty of tongue in cheek Fab Four humour that adults will chuckle over such as "Frankenstein's a friend of yours?" Fred asked. "Oh, yeah. I used to go out with his sister ... Phyllis." A delightful picture book kids and adults will enjoy, both on different levels. ( )

This book is a great summery of the movie with a lot of the best lines. It’s filled with full-color illustrations from the movie- the only thing missing is the music. This would be a great one to do immitating the voices for, and I could play the soundtrack while reading the beginning. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763624403, Hardcover)

A whole new generation will be climbing aboard this sunny, psychedelic
storybook, while nostalgic Beatles fans of all ages will be clamoring for a ticket to ride.

Once upon a time (or maybe twice), some 80,000 leagues beneath the sea, there lay a colorful land of song and laughter called Pepperland, where Sergeant Pepper's Band was always playing your song — until the Blue Meanies burst on the scene and chased all the music and magic away. So began the classic 1968 film Yellow Submarine, inspired by a song and hailed as an avant-garde amalgam of pop art, Beatles music, and highly innovative animation. Now that film's dazzling images — and its lighthearted, witty tale — is showcased in a glorious picture book sure to be savored by fans and readers of all ages.

At the request of a befuddled emissary from Pepperland, four lads from Liverpool take a ride in a yellow submarine and use music to aid Pepperland's besieged residents in their battle against the Blue Meanies.
