Up: The Insider's (Essential) Guide

 Since I was little, I always liked the DK publishing's "Essential Guide" books to all my favorite movies...Pixar films are of course no exception! These books always chock-full of lots of fun info about characters, plot points, props, fun trivia ("Did you know?" facts), quotes, stats and much more! They are definitely geared more to a younger crowed, but I still say they're great for learning so many simple things about the films that you might not get from just watching them. I especially like this one since I really don't have very many items from Up.

Here's an example of a couple of the fun pages you can expect:

  You can still get this book on Amazon new for really cheap! Or if you're more of an eBay person, check it out here.

 You can find an "Essential Guide" for every Pixar film except A Bug's Life.

Check out my "Books" label to the right the explore my growing collection of Pixar books and see more of the Essential Guides that I own. More to come!


  1. My friend Kelly actually surprised me with a bag of wonderful goodies from Pixar the other day...this book was among them. I can't wait to dive more into it, Up is my favorite!

  2. Oh yah, Up is one of my absolute favorites as well! Absolutely beautiful. You're so lucky to have such good Pixar friends that take care of you like that! That is too cool. And yes, these books are fun to dive into. They're super simple that kids can read them but still have lots of fun little facts to learn! I'll be posting more soon. Thanks for the comment! : )
