Animal Stars: Behind the Scenes with Your Favorite Animal Actors Reviews
I love how this is written. I enjoy reading about the animals I loved in the movies and am happy how safe and protected they are on the movie set. The Humane Society has a representative on the set of any animal show.
I really enjoyed reading, about how some of these animal stars, rose up the ranks, after starting their lives,in shelters. Somebody knew, how to recognize, their potential, for stardom, and accepted the challenge. These animal stars, succeeded, against tremendous odds...
Animal Stars shares delightful stories of how animal trainers unlock the unique potential animals possess and help them become the animal actors that touch the hearts of audiences around the world. You will be captivated and want to read every page. Congratulations to Dr. Robin Ganzert and Allen & Linda Anderson for creating awareness about how animals in film and TV are trained and cared for on set in accordance with the highest standards.
I love this book. I have often wondered about the animal trainers and the animals they train. This book gave me a glimpse into their world. Well written and fun!
This is a book that needed to be written. It accurately portrays the bond that exists between animal trainers and their charges. For these trainers, working with animals is a calling...a lifetime commitment...something the "animal rights" activists cannot relate to and will never understand. Kudos to American Humane Association for making this information available to the public!
So interesting - but Elephants must NEVER be forced to perform
I love this book! What a gift to be able to see behind the scenes of what goes on with the animals we fall in love with on screen. What unique personalities each one has! The bond between the animals, and their trainers and their fellow actors is what makes each story so compelling. Animals have much to teach us and with this inside view you are able to see the gift that each one brings. Thank you Robin Ganzert and the Andersons for taking the time to write this book and let us into a world we would normally never get to see. (I can see my holiday gift giving taken care of with Animal Stars!)
Growing up, I was always excited when Saturday movie day came around and I got to see the latest movie with an animal as the hero. The movie Big Red, for example, began a life long love affair with Irish Setters. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Animal Stars. The stories of the animal actors took me back to fond memories of my childhood. I can only hope that today's movie animals will sow the seeds of compassion in a child as it did in me all those years ago. Read this book. You'll be pleased you did.
