But for the Shermans, success was not always just a dream away.The story of the Sherman Brothers might have sprung from a stock Disney plot: after long struggles and numerous failures, a serendipitous event brought them fame, fortune, and happiness. That event was their first meeting with Walt Disney, a meeting which they left with their heads hanging, as Walt's only comment about the song they played for them was: "That'll work."In Walt-speak, however, "that'll work" was high praise indeed, and the Shermans (or "the boys", as Walt called them) went on to create a musical legacy that millions of Disney fans just can't get out of their heads.In this well-researched biography, Kathryn Price traces the lives of the Shermans, from their unsettled childhood as the sons of a Tin Pan Alley songwriter and their early failure to replicate his success, to their chart-topping but surprisingly short collaboration with Walt Disney and the long coda to their careers after Walt's death and the transformation of the Disney company into a disharmony they could not tolerate.

The book is loaded with Disney trivia, and the Sherman brother’s journey is delivered in a positive and inspiring voice. The writing is refreshing. You can’t help but smile. The narrative celebrates the fun and the dream, as if on a trip to Disneyland. I stumbled upon this title in a Kindle Unlimited promotion. It’s a home run if you have any interest in Disney. It also seems longer than its estimated Kindle page count.

    I really enjoyed this book. I would want to read even more biographies about the Sherman Brothers. They made some of my favorite music- and it turns out they did more than most people know about.
