Publisher's Summary

One of the '60s most popular teen idols, Annette Funicello was more than America's favorite Mouseketeer. She knew Walt Disney, he chose her for his Mickey Mouse Club. She dated Paul Anka, Fabian, and Frankie Avalon. She made movies with such stars as Mickey Rooney and Fred MacMurray. Then she left it all behind to raise a family. In 1992, she reentered public life to share her battle with multiple sclerosis. In this touching memoir, Annette Funicello tells us that, despite it all, life is more perfect than she'd ever dreamed it might be - and once again proves to be "America's Sweetheart."

Do you remember the Mouseketeers?

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This book is exactly what I expected it to be, knowing it was about Annette. It was sweet, funny and took me back to the late 50's and my childhood.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?


What does Annette Funicello bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Hearing her voice and knowing the effort it must have taken, given her illness, made it all the sweeter.

Did A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes inspire you to do anything?

It brought back all those times I raced home from school to watch the Mousketeers, Spin & Marty and the Hardy Boys. Good days, calm and peaceful days that will never happen for today's kids, unfortunately.

Any additional comments?
