Great new books from Disney Publishing from autobiographies to Oswald, coming soon!

The kids are back to school, and it is time for daily school drop off and pickups. For some who have bus service, there are still plenty of sporting events, doctors appointment and lots of stuff that involves waiting for extended time periods… Do you have a good book to help pass the time? Well good news Disney Publishing has some great upcoming books you are going to love! Here are some of my favorite that are available, and coming soon.
 People may thing that the Disney empire started with a mouse, but did you know it really started with a rabbit? Learn more about Oswald the Lucky Rabbit with this new book: Oswald the Lucky Rabbit: The Search for the Lost Disney Cartoons  by David A. Bossert - Oswald the Lucky Rabbit: The Search for the Lost Disney Cartoons is an in-depth look at the origins of the Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio and their first major fully animated success in 1927 with Oswald the Lucky Rabbit series. The narrative explores the historical importance of this character within The Walt Disney Company and recounts, first, the rejection of the first Oswald short, Poor Papa, followed by the overwhelmingly positive reception of second short, Trolley Troubles, and the ultimate loss of Disney’s rights to the character and the company’s modern-day journey to reclaim Disney’s films. The book retails for $40 but is on sale at Amazon for $27.50 this book is available now.

 Natural Disaster: I Cover Them. I am One.  by Ginger Zee - ABC News chief meteorologist Ginger Zee pulls back the curtain on her life in Natural Disaster. Ginger grew up in small-town Michigan where she developed an obsession with weather as a young girl. Ginger opens up about her lifelong battle with crippling depression, her romances that range from misguided to dangerous, and her tumultuous professional path. This cyclone of stories may sound familiar to some-it's just that Ginger's personal tempests happened while she was covering some of the most devastating storms in recent history, including a ferocious tornado that killed a legend in the meteorology field.

This book is for all the mistake makers who have learned to forgive others and themselves-even in the aftermath of man-made, or in this case Zee-made, disasters. It's a story that every young woman should read, a story about finding love and finding it in yourself.  Beloved by Good Morning America's audience, Ginger is a daily presence for millions. Zee's gained fame for her social media presence which is as unfiltered as Natural Disaster-from baby barf to doggy doo-doo. She's shattered the glass ceiling for women in meteorology, but admits here first, she's the one natural disaster she couldn't have forecast. Book is released on December 5, 2017. Book retails for $26.99.

My Pride (Broadway's Record-Breaking Lion King) Mastering Life's Daily Performance By: Alton Fitzgerald White - Drawing on his own life and career and the rich lore of The Lion King, Alton Fitzgerald White, Broadway's longest running "King," delivers his message of service -- taking responsibility for and deriving happiness from commonplace achievements -- as a philosophy that anyone can get through each day with satisfaction, pride and a sense of accomplishment. If you've ever wondered how an actor can perform the same role hundreds of times without burning out, in White's book you'll meet someone who does it for thousands more with unbated joy and renewal of purpose. From his life experience, White has learned the secret of tapping his inner resources to meet the challenge of routine and repetition in work and relationships. Book is available on November 7th 2017. Book retails for $24.99.
