In this acclaimed memoir, Kingston recalls the conflicting cultural messages she received as the daughter of Chinese immigrants growing up in 1950s America. Mulan is a powerful symbolic force in her story.
Like the other "Art of" coffee-table books, this one is beautifully illustrated with preproduction art and stills from the movie. This book has fascinating text, much of which is the artists' own words on the journey they took in creating Mulan. Highly recommended.
This little paperback is probably the closest you can get to the actual screenplay. It is illustrated with stills from the movie. A nice adaptation.
Ann Braybrooks quotes a number of great lines not in Dubowski's book (though she also misses some that Dubowski includes) including many of Mushu's best zingers and Mulan's hilarious take on "manly urges". Definitely worth it to the Mulanatic.
Like the other big hardback storybooks, this one is well-illustrated and does a good job retelling the tale.
This hardback storybook is beautifully illustrated with watercolor paintings based on stills from the film.
In addition to the movie story, this book has a lot of great behind-the-scenes information. This hardback includes a translation of the poem, photos from the Disney research trip to China, and pre-production and production art.
