5.0 out of 5 starsFriendship and Storytelling
Reviewed in the United States on January 17, 2019
The story of Aardman is such a compelling one. It’s not just the story of unforgettable characters - it’s the tale of the remarkably talented people who brought them to life. Thank goodness Lord and Sproxton forged their childhood friendship and embarked on the animation journey together. The world is a better place because of their company’s strong storytelling.
5.0 out of 5 starsWhat a breath of fresh air in the tawdry entertainment world!

I’m a real Shaun the Sheep fan, having no idea what Aardman was or did. I bought the book mostly out of curiosity; once I got started, I couldn’t put it down. This is the story about 2 geeky guys in England, meeting by chance , developing a deep camaraderie of cartooning and creativity , never thinking about where their lives and careers would end up. This story is what everyone wants a success story to be: people with talent, drive, ability who roll with the bad times but continue to act as they believe: despite Hollywood and the lure of big bucks forever, they acted together with their growing staff and decided to do things “ their way” To say they lived happily ever after is pretty close to the truth. What a breath of fresh air in the tawdry entertainment world! Hooray for the good guys who did the difficult but right thing. And I still love Shaun the Sheep.
5.0 out of 5 starsFun, fun, fun...the smartest artists and designers!

I'm a total fan, plus a great admirer of stop motion animation. Their story of how they got their start in the business is compelling and truly fascinating. This book is for everyone who loves their animated stories.
