Walt Disney forever changed the world when he made his animation and entertainment dreams come true. For millions of people, "Disney" and "magic" are inextricably connected. But what was Walt like as a child? He fed his imagination by going to parades and plays, riding pigs around the farmyard, painting and drawing ... but he also worked hard to help support his parents and siblings. Filled with creative energy, this story will inspire readers to pursue their dreams with vigor.
