Little Golden Book Monday #3

Today's Little Golden Book is "Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse and the Missing Mouseketeers" from 1956 (my printing is from 1975). I was immediately drawn to the wonderful artwork on the cover of Mickey Mouse with his detective cap and magnifying glass.
The story takes place at Disneyland and has many wonderful drawings of Mickey and the gang at all the familiar spots in the park. I especially liked the opening paragraph "Disneyland was all agog. Main Street was hung with banners." Agog is a great word for a children's book don't you think?
And for any of you who are worried... Mickey dose find Minnie Mouse and the Mousketeers in the end!
