Gijs Grob with his book Mickey's MoviesMy own copies of my book ‘Mickey’s Movies – The Theatrical Films of Mickey Mouse‘, recently published by Theme Park Press, have arrived this week! I’m very happy to be see the book in reality.

Meanwhile esteemed Disney historian Didier Ghez has written the first review on my book on his Disney History Blog. Ghez writes:

“I just received my personal copy of Mickey’s Movies by Gijs Grob. I absolutely love this book. Gijs discusses all of Mickey’s shorts and his insights are absolutely fascinating.

To be read in small installments. A “must have” for Mickey enthusiasts.”

You can buy the book on Amazon. There is both a paperback and a Kindle edition. I hope you’ll enjoy it! And if you’ve already grabbed a copy: 1) thanks! and 2) I’d love it if you could review the book on Amazon.

Mickey's Movies cover artI’ve got some big news: I’ve published my first book!

I interrupt my  steady flow of animation film reviews to announce that Theme Park Press has just released my book ‘Mickey’s Movies – The Theatrical Films of Mickey Mouse‘. This is the first book I’ve ever written, and I am very proud to see it available on Amazon!*

Theme Park Press is an American publishing company specialized in Disney-themed books, and I’ve got several of their publications in my own collection. e.g. by renowned animation historians like Jim Korkis and Ross Care. I feel therefore very flattered that they’ve asked me to write a book for them!

In this book I discuss every theatrical film Mickey has made, more or less in the same line as in this blog, but often in more detail, and in strict chronological order. Moreover, I describe Mickey’s rise and fall, and how he changed through the years. And of course, the birth and evolution of Pluto, Goofy and Donald are discussed, too, as long as they take place inside Mickey’s movie career. Because I’m looking beyond the regular trio of Steamboat Willie, The Band Concert and The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, I’ll show that much of Disney’s innovations can be followed inside Mickey’s films, and that Mickey’s film career has its own unique story to tell.

You can buy the book on amazon. There is both a paperback and a Kindle edition. I hope you’ll enjoy it! And if you’ve already grabbed a copy: 1) thanks! and 2) I’d love it if you could review the book on Amazon.

 

* I still have to wait for my own hard copies, so I haven’t seen it in print myself, yet 🙂
