"It's actually the first 'art of' book focusing on a Pixar short, but I found it fascinating, not least because Hindu culture is not something you see a lot of in typical American pop culture. While the movie itself does not get very deeply into the religion, it is a very personal story and the book provides a little more insight into the origins of this story and how it came to be made." -GeekDad

"The Art of Sanjay's Super Team is everything I want an art book to be. The book is full of a diverse range of art; we don't just get to see the finalized art but also exploratory work that didn't make it into the short. A great part of the book is also that it's filled with information and interviews with the crew...It works very well, and I was very intrigued throughout to read about the production of the short and everything that went into it. This book is in my opinion the perfect art book, and it's definitely one you shouldn't miss in your collection." -Rotoscopers
