Possibly one of my favorite books of childhood. There are so many stories in here, all of them made into cartoons or full-length features. There are so many stories in here that I've forgotten about, or never read, or which have been rotated out of viewing because of sensitivity and political-correctness issues, but they are still part of the Disney history, so they cannot be erased.

I wish the Disney channel would get back to airing old shorts or showing these older cartoons, instead of the teen

This wonderful collection was first published in 1962 (the year I was born) and was a favorite of mine as a child. I can't even guess how many hours I spent with this book! Back in 1992, I found a new edition of this book at a bookstore in Indiana and just HAD to get it for our kids. It's got excerpts of stories from some of the classic Disney movies, but it's also got all sorts of others, everything from Johnny Appleseed to "Peter and the Wolf." This is a goodie, and I hope our future grandchil ...more

These are stories taken from Disney movies and cartoons. There are many I have never heard of! The quality varies depending on the stories. Some are written by talented writers like Bill Peet and Margaret Wise Brown. Some are sexist, in typical Disney fashion. Some come from an American point of view (for example, "Ben and Me" and "Davey Crockett.")

Another one of those favorite storybooks from when I was little. I remember the really strange one with the kid who met the dragon who gave everybody lemonade (though I think a later edition dropped that one), and the rabbit who painted sunsets (though that was a sad one), and the story of Goofy's rise to fame... yeah, this was good old-fashioned Disney.

Overall this is a good collection of stories. I found some interesting and some incredibly boring. There are some stories in here filled with racism and sexism which isn't surprising since this is Disney, but aside from those stories, it's great for reading aloud with children.

I read this over and over and stared at the pictures for hours as a kid. I still have my very beat up copy.

My version says 55 favorite stories adapted from Walt Disney Films, not 72. I grew up reading this book so it is a childhood favorite.
