Little Donny Osmond, whose toothy grin graced posters on many pre-teens' bedroom walls, is all grown up. He started his singing career at the age of five and eventually broke out as a teen idol, earning 23 gold records by the time he was 13. In the 1970's, Donny and his sister Marie hosted a popular television program. But his singing style and goodie-goodie image didn't fare well in the 1980's, and his career plummeted.
He got a chance to make a comeback when he was offered the lead in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Gossip mavens won't find much here; Donny is as squeaky clean as his image implies. However, this is a surprisingly open and sincere look at the life of a child star whose early fame came and went (including a hint of resentment about having to work so hard so young), and the effort it took to get back on top. A good addition to inspirational as well as celebrity biography collections. Rosellen Brewer, Monterey Bay Area Cooperative Lib. Syst., Pacific Grove, CA
