    I've looked at several sites and can not find a book specifically on him, but he is discussed in several books. If you search him on Amazon, you will see all the books he is mentioned in.

    I have tried that. Thanks. I am currently reading the biography of Paul Frees and enjoying it. I just found out that Thurl Ravenscroft sang "Your a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" and remembered that he did many voices in the parks, so I was hoping someone had written his story as well.

    There's a paperback book called "Welcome, Foolish Mortals... The Life and Voices of Paul Frees" by Ben Ohmart. From the title, it sounds as if it's written by a Disney fan, rather than a general voice talent or radio fan.

    Yes, that's the one. The title is based, of course, on the fact that Paul Frees was the voice of the Ghost Host. So far it seem very well written and researched.
