NEW YORK, NY — We are the authors of a new children’s historic fiction book about Walt Disney and the B.S. Moss Colony Theater being released this month by Simon and Schuster. BLAST TO THE PAST: DISNEY’S DREAM is geared to 7 to 11 year olds and perfect for anyone interested in this slice of theater history.

DISNEY’S DREAM asks readers to consider what the world be like if Walt Disney had given up his dreams and quit?

The book takes place entirely around Broadway in 1928. It is the task of four third grade students to time travel to Broadway’s B.S. Moss Colony Theater and convince Walt Disney of the immeasurable value his work will mean to future generations. The novel focuses on the moment when Walt Disney added sound to his Steamboat Willie cartoon simultaneously introducing Mickey Mouse and solidifying his place in American history.

For more information about the book or the series that it is part of, please visit www.blasttothepastbooks.com DISNEY’S DREAM is available June 1, 2005 at bookstores everywhere.

I have never read the book, but I know it may be perfect for the kids who have learning disabilities. The book is about Walt Disney, who, according to some websites, had a possible case of A.D.D., or Dyslexia. Disney’s work may serve as an inspiration to them. I am not a teacher, but a person with A.D.D. I believe that children can face challenges head on. Also Dyslexia is something that can be overcome with proper schooling. These children really need to know that they have enough intelligence and, enough “outside of the box” thinking to achieve greatness.
