The book is a great behind the scenes look at LAIKA and what goes into making a Stop Motion feature. Also you get to see the equipment used by LAIKA. There is an chapter near the end that's basically Sam Fell taking about going onto Google Maps and finding houses that look like Norman's,
which is awesome. It's a must buy for any Stop Motion enthusiast, and I highly recommend it. Go buy it on Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/The-Art-Making-ParaNorman and this will conclude the Stop Motion Geek book review of the month of August.
