Why? Because We Still Like You by Jennifer Armstrong
This is a nice little book about the history of the personalities who were the original Mickey Mouse Club. I remember watching the re-runs as a toddler. The book delves into the kids who made the show so popular and all that they endured and still endure as the original Mouseketeers.
Some stayed in the business, others ventured into other things. Some stayed for all 3 seasons, some never even appeared on camera. You get to know the likes and dislikes of the cast members and the routines that were required to keep the mouse ears.
Definitely well researched and the author was able to get in touch with many of the members of the club. Most of the members stay in touch and gather for anniversaries. Nice piece of history.
