Lucy Rosen & Ed Miller The story of Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment's Minions begins at the dawn of time. Starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters. Continuously unsuccessful at keeping these masters-from T. rex to Napoleon-the Minions find themselves without someone to serve and fall into a deep depression.
But one Minion named Kevin has a plan, and he-alongside teenage rebel Stuart and lovable little Bob-ventures out into the world to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow.
The trio embarks upon a thrilling journey that ultimately leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (Academy Award® winner Sandra Bullock), the world's first-ever female super-villain. They travel from frigid Antarctica to 1960s New York City, ending in mod London, where they must face their biggest challenge to date: saving all of Minionkind...from annihilation.
Featuring a soundtrack of hit music from the '60s that still permeates our culture today, Minions is produced by Illumination's Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy, and is directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda. Brian Lynch has written the screenplay for the 3D-CG comedy adventure, and Chris Renaud serves as executive producer of the film. A storybook inspired by the new feature film!

Ed Miller The cover design of the author, with Sholem Alekhem in the Wall Street station of the IRT in New York City, is an obvious example of Narishkeit, or foolishness. Well, not exactly. For in my imagination, it was he who inspired me to write these stories depicting the humor that sustained the Jewish people through two thousand years of Diaspora tragedy. It is that tradition that this collection of stories and Gom Zu has been written. We must not allow that world of long ago to be lostever.
