Talk about a delightful surprise! I received yesterday my copy of the long awaited autobiography of Wally Boag, written with Gene Sands, Wally Boag - Clown Prince of Disneyland. The book is everything that one could expect and then some. It's shock-full of never-seen-before documents and illustrations about Wally and Wally's life and career, filled with great stories, and, being 176 page long, has enough space to ensure that all the key details are covered. In other words, if you care about the early days of Disneyland, you can't miss this book.

I wished there were books like this one about all the key Disney Legends (knowing me, Ken Anderson comes to mind immediately, of course).

I interviewed Gene Sands a few months ago about the book at this link.

Can't tell you how excited I am each time I have to review a book like this one that really brings something new to some aspect of Disney History.

[UPDATE. Gene Sands says: "Despite what the link says, The "Collector's Edition," which has been signed, can be purchased for $68.00 which includes tax, handling and postage. The "Standard Edition," which is not signed, can be purchased for $45.00 which also includes tax, handling and postage.]

That is an old link for Wally's book. The correct link is: Both versions can be purchased there.

Sorry. The link is now corrected.
