Reviews for Yellow Submarine

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2012 Fall
In this "midi edition" adaptation of the 1968 animated film, most of the jokes in the pun-filled text require thorough knowledge of the Beatles or their times; the story meanders aimlessly. Lush backgrounds in the art are blurry in reproduction, while objects in the foreground appear in crisp cartoon-cel style. The uninitiated will probably find the book annoyingly dense and silly.
