From early boyhood in Indiana, his love for drawing was much more than a hobby; every day he drew secretly in his school books during classes. After art school Peet went on to win prizes for his paintings. Then he went to work for Disney Studios, where he gained Walt Disney's respect and friendship and progressed to top writer-illustrator on such well-loved films as Dumbo, Fantasia, Cinderella, Song of the South, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, The Sword in the Stone, and One Hundred and One Dalmatians. While still at Disney, Peet began writing children's stories, and his popularity soared. Now his picture books, more than thirty of them, are read by kids the world over. In this handsome autobiography, Bill Peet tells in words and pictures the fascinating tale of his life.
