    David Koenig's Mouse Tales

    I've read his first book about disneyland.
    I was wondering if the second book is as interesting.

    can anyone help?
    i would like to know if it is worth special ordering.

    I love his second book just as much as his first. I definitely recommend you read it.

    Both are decent reads for the Disney fan.

    Call me crazy, but I'm not an enormous fan of the books. They're all right, just not so much my cup of tea. Maybe I get turned off by the inaccurate track layouts.

    I thought the first one was more interesting, but if you liked it you'll like the second.

    Re: David Koenig's Mouse Tales

    i enjoyed it, so i guess i will buy the second (or at least search for it at every library in a 50 mile radius).

    hahahaha, track layouts.

    The 2nd book is more laid out than the 1st, by land (Fantasyland, etc.), to go on to the operational side (security), then to accidents/lawsuits. Help me if I'm not mistaken.

    Re: David Koenig's Mouse Tales

    I enjoyed both of his Mouse Tales books, as well as his Mouse under Glass, which looks at the making of the Disney Animated movies, behind the scenes. If you enjoyed the first book, you will enjoy the other two.

    Haven't read his most recent book Realityland.

    All of his books are great. I wish that he would jump to Miceage!

    Realityland is a fantastic piece of work about WDW.

    Re: David Koenig's Mouse Tales

    Yea, it is of the utmost importance to read BOTH books. I think over the couple of years that I have owned the books, I have read each one about 4-5 times.

    As a former Attractions Host, I find the books to be real interesting reads. They bring back a lot of memories.

    Re: David Koenig's Mouse Tales

    I got enjoyment out of both so I definitely recommend both. I consider the first to be better than the second one, but the second definitely has new things in there and it's just as fun to read.

    Re: David Koenig's Mouse Tales

    I also recommend the two "Mouse Tales" books and "Realityland", but my personal favorite of Koenig's is "Mouse Under Glass", his book about Disney animation. I must have read it a million times when I was a teenager.
