Catherine Ryan Howard is an occasionally delusional twenty-something from Cork, Ireland. She's trying to get somebody - ANYBODY! Anybody? - to publish her first novel and in the meantime is going to self-publish MOUSETRAPPED, the tale of her Disney World adventures. She likes cheesecake and telling herself that, come Monday, she'll get back on the treadmill. She wants to be a NASA astronaut when she grows up.

Moustrapped a delight. Catherine Ryan Howard has a uniquely engaging style that makes this book easy to read and hard to put down. I didn’t buy the book because of an interest in Disney, the space program or travel memoirs but because I found her book, Self-Printed so thoroughly enjoyable; I figured if she could make a how-to manual fun to read, her other book might be worth a go. I was not disappointed.
The book had many hysterical and heart-warming moments (as well as a few tut-tut opportunities: really, Miss Howard, driving a car without benefit of an actual license? Scandalous!) and provided an interesting view of Disney, Orlando, the US space program and a handful of other topics. The second half of the book rambles a bit, but it remains interesting and, ultimately, satisfying.
