Which Disney movies are based off of books?

If you know the author, title, and any other information... I would love to know. Also if you know if they are still readable today, as in if I can find them at a library. Please tell me anything and everything.

    J. M. Barrie wrote Peter Pan. Lewis Carroll wrote Alice in Wonderland. Hans Christian Andersen wrote many great stories, some of which Walt Disney got his grubby claws in and ruined, by changing the outcome into some gay lavender express bullshit. The Little Mermaid is a case in point. Walt Disney also utterly ruined Pinnochio, by Carlo Collodi. In the Disney version, the horrible little cricket vermin that was such anathema to Pinnochio is some friendly little chap who is basically an atheist, if you can believe that. But what can you say about some clown who sent donations to Hitler in the thirties except that he MUST have been an atheist. Additionally, I'm sure there are several stories that were collected (not written by) Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, in the late 18th century that Disney took especial pleasure in twisting the meaning into some marketable piece of tripe. I suppose we can be thankful he didn't get his greasy meathooks on the new testament. If he did, Jesus would have probably escaped the cross and crucified Pontius Pilate and the entire Roman Senate instead, and then he would have gone off to run a vineyard or something and live happily ever after. Hope this helps.

    The Black Cauldron by Lloyd Alexander (still available today)

    There are different versions of the Disney Princesses by the Grimm Brothers, but the stories are much darker. (Probably available in the library. Just ask the librarian.)

    Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Caroll (I'm sure this is still around.)

    It would take way too long for me to write them all :

    Here are some of the top of my head:

    Peter Pan- J.M Barrie

    Alice in Wonderland- Lewis Carrol

    The Little Mermaid-Hans Christian Anderson



    Jungle Book

    Winnie the Pooh-A.A Milne

    A lot of them didn't end the same, at all.
