This is a book I've had on my shelf for a while, but never read. It was given to me by a friend when I was taking a class on stop motion animation. I grew up seeing stop motion as a kid, especially during Christmas season. I had seen some of the Wallace and Grommit shorts, and Chicken Run as well. This book details the entire process of making stop motion animation at Aardman. It is so much more in depth than I had learned in my little introduction class.

This book uses an extensive collection of pictures to document the process of creating the characters and bring them to life, one frame at a time. While this method isn't very common now, it would be a great introduction to animation concepts for young readers. ( )
