Product description

Review

This reference paints 1950s- to 1980s-era child actors as those who ""were there for us in our otherwise
empty house"" during the birth of the latchkey-kid generation. Entries feature child actors from notable
series, such as Butch Patrick, from The Munsters, and Kathy Garver (the book's coauthor), from Family
Affair. The book is arranged in date order by TV show. Each entry includes air dates and network
information as well as a brief biography on each child star. The profiles capture career successes and/or
misfortunes and lead to the actors' present-day careers and family lives. The text is peppered with a few
cast photos. The decades of coverage here will make this work appealing to audiences ranging from late
boomers to Gen Xers.

Product Description

This enlightening book is the go-to guide for fans for biographical information, rare photos, and interesting trivia about their favorite child stars, shows, series, networks, and the times that defined the shows. Spanning forty years of television history, this book details both the success stories and misfortunes of many child stars. Included in this book are the stories of Anissa Jones, Buffy on Family Affair, who tragically died from a drug overdose at the age of eighteen, as well as Ron Howard, who starred in both The Andy Griffith Show and Happy Days, and who later became an Academy Award–winning director. A child star herself, Kathy Garver profiles these and other legends of classic television in a book that will answer the question: Where are they now?
