Pocket Full of Colors: The Magical World of Mary Blair, Disney Artist Extraordinaire

Mary Blair lived her life in color: vivid, wild color. From her imaginative childhood to her career as an illustrator, designer, and animator for Walt Disney Studios, Mary wouldn't play by the rules. At a time when studios wanted to hire men and think in black and white, Mary painted twinkling emerald skies, peach giraffes with tangerine spots, and magenta horses that could fly. She painted her world.

Amy Guglielmo, Jacqueline Tourville, and Brigette Barrager team up to tell the joyful and unique story of the trailblazing Disney artist Mary Blair.

"As one of the first women to work at Walt Disney Studios, [Blair] contributes to Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, and Peter Pan but is stymied by male bosses, who declare her work (such as magenta flying horses) 'too vivid, too wild.' She leaves to do advertising, book illustration, and stage sets, but Disney himself invites her back to work on a new ride called 'It’s a Small World'....A bright homage to Blair’s bold work." -- Kirkus Reviews
