Writing Disneystrology was truly a labor of love. There were many days when I was up all night researching the array of Disney characters and finding their special place in the book.

I watched movies, read quotes and dialogue from the movie scripts, searched online, and gathered trunk loads of library books taking copious notes and looking for novel bits of information that would reveal the creative origins behind each character and story.

Disneystrology was a 2011 YALSA
(Young Adult Library Services Association)
Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Adult
Readers nominee.

None of the characters I chose to include in Disneystrology were fillers or afterthoughts. I treated each birthday as my own.

My intention, as you read your birthday entry, is for you to remember how magical you are, the important role you play in the lives of others, and to bring a smile to your face.
