A Mickey Mouse Reader
By Garry Apgar
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received this book free from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review
This was quite the interesting read.
I was never one to read non-fiction books, they are for me, at times, boring. This could also extend form my dislike of such books from school. 10 years later and it's effects have yet to full wear off. (I have some not so G-rated words for you high-school)
Enough on that or I'll be here all day.
I learned so much about Disney from this book. Somethings I already knew, like how Cinderella bailed Disney out when they where about to go bankrupted. But what I like the most was learning how Micky Mouse, my childhood hero, was born.
As for reading, it was at times a little dry, so this was not a one sitting read. It was more like a before bed, kind of read. The information was engaging enough to keep me in it, but not enough to make be stay up all night and want to finished it, before the sun came up.
Outside of the dryness, and some dull moments, the writing style was an eight.
I highly recommend this book for those who love history and learning something new. This is a good pick up book that has sometime new and unique on every page.
If you ever find yourself doing a report or assignment on Micky or Disney, this is a prefect reference book. A lot of work went into this, and you can tell from the care of detail in every word.
