Finding Nemo: The Essential Guide (2nd Edition)
Clear back in March this year, in preparation for the release of Finding Dory, DK released an updated "2nd Edition" version of their 2003 Finding Nemo: The Essential Guide book! This new version is soft cover and includes over 60 stickers at the end. Other than that, the differences between this one and the original pretty much stop right there.
I honestly thought that there was going to be new, updated/expanded material in this (connecting it to Finding Dory), but it's my fault for not comparing this one and the 2003 version before buying. I've had this book for months, but I only just got around to a side by side comparison before sitting down to write this post. To my surprise, it's word for word, photo for photo and page for page the same as the original (with only slight tweaks to the fonts, colors and layouts). As mentioned, the soft cover and the stickers in the back are really all that are new here.
If you never picked this one up back in the day, then this new release is a great opportunity to grab it for your collection! It's definitely a cool way to introduce (or reintroduce) your little ones to the characters of Finding Nemo. The material is still as great as ever, with loads of fun info about characters (i.e. traits, thoughts, backstory), plot points, "fun facts", quotes, stats and much more. Even if you do have the original, you might just want a new fresh version that's not 13 years old. Either way!
This book is 56 pages in length (not counting the actual sticker sheets). Check out some of them below!
Check out my "Books" label to the right of this page to explore my growing collection of Pixar books, including the many other Essential Guides that I own. Note: You can find an Essential Guide book for every Pixar film except for A Bug's Life.
If you're a fan of Finding Nemo, I definitely recommend picking this up. You can currently find it easily in stores (I bought mine at Barnes & Noble) or on Amazon using the direct link below. Retail is $8.99.
