Inspired by the song "Yellow Submarine" from the Beatles' Revolver album, the film YELLOW SUBMARINE was released in 1968 and was quickly hailed as a visionary masterpiece. This extraordinary collaboration of talent -- Heinz Edelmann's art wedded with Beatles music -- was brought to life in celluloid with groundbreaking animation techniques. More than thirty-five years later, the film continues to beguile adults and children alike.
The delirious color and the shape-shifting figures offer delight on every page. Love IS all you need. --Kirkus Reviews (starred review) The text has some of the wonderful puns from the movie. --School Library Journal Adults of a certain age will surely find it hard to take this walk down memory lane without hearing an internal soundtrack. --The Horn Book The artwork is appropriately bright and psychedelic, the dialogue replete with puns and wordplay. The kids will love it, and so will their baby-boomer grandparents. --Orlando Sentinel I have been reading YELLOW SUBMARINE to my kids for several weeks since its publication, and they are hypnotized. . . . The story is simple and brilliant. --Entertainment Today
