Andy is 17 years old and headed off to college, meaning he doesn't have a place in his life for childhood things. The toys (save for Woody), fearing they'll be packed away in the attic and forgotten about forever, are mistakenly donated to the local daycare facility. There, their wishes to be played with once again are fulfilled all too well. They also meet a new collection of toys, including Barbie, Ken, Mr. Pricklepants, Chuckles the clown, and the grandfatherly Lots-O' Huggin' Bear, who may not be exactly who he seems to be. When Woody realizes that Andy still wants his toys, it's up to him to stage a daring rescue effort and break his friends out of Sunnyside Day Care

A bug's life by Walt Disney( visu )
30 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 2,054 libraries worldwide
Cute and clever, "A Bug's Life" is a relatively straight retelling of Kurosawa's "The Seven Samurai," except of course that the characters are bugs! Idealistic young ant Flik is a sweet-natured dreamer and inventor. But his innovative thinking makes him an outcast when one of his inventions goes awry and destroys the food sacrifice that the colony makes annually to a gang of grasshopper hooligans led by the sinister Hopper. Disgraced, Flik is sent to look for "warrior bugs," mercenaries to fight them. What he finds--and hires--are a motley crew of circus bugs including a preening master-thespian mantis, a glamorous gypsy moth, a cranky ladybug, a dimwitted beetle, and sundry other dimwitted, craven troupers. The ant colony is inspired by the troupe and mobilizes, but when they discover that the "warriors" are just circus clowns they lose faith. In the end, of course, Flik and crew save the day and free the colony from the oppressive grasshoppers

Pleasantville by Gary Ross( visu )
24 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,876 libraries worldwide
Twin siblings David and Jennifer couldn't be more different: she curses, smokes, and sleeps around; David is a prototypical nerdy outcast. Then, one dark and stormy night, they're sucked into the TV and Pleasantville: a perfect suburban Disneyland suffused with church-social niceness and Rotary Club boosterism. Jennifer despises it all. So, like a pint-size Lauren Bacall, she refuses to play the role of poodle-skirted good girl and introduces one of the boys to sex, after which this bland, black and white world magically begins changing into color. Through the combined forces of sex and rock 'n' roll, it becomes clear that the things that make life worth living--passion, knowledge, and love--are far removed from safety, stability, and bland sterility. Before too long, the whole town is wondering: what's outside Pleasantville?
