Little Golden Book Monday #52

Today's Little Golden Book is Walt Disney's Lady and the Tramp, based on the 1955 feature film, which includes two of my favorite Disney songs; "He's a Tramp" (written by Sonny Burke & Peggy Lee performed by Peggy Lee) and "The Siamese Cat Song" (written by Sonny Burke & Peggy Lee performed by Peggy Lee).
The film also has two of my favorite Disney characters, which are the two mischievous Siamese cats named Si and Am.
The book is adapted by Teddy Slater and illustrated by Bill Langley and Ron Dias.
The artwork throughout the book is great. I love the rich colors. It reminds me a lot of "Sleeping Beauty".
What makes this book special for me is that it was previously owned by a dog. If you don't believe me, check out the scan of the inside front cover. You can plainly see the paw print on the "This little Golden Book belongs to" space in the book. That really is how I found this copy when I picked it up at a local thrift shop.

Pretty neat huh!

I loved this movie and so did my children and I have watched it with my Grand Children and they love it as well.

I don't think I have seen this movie in over 20 years. I'll have to dig though my VHS tapes and see if I have this one. If I do, I'll have to share it with my son.
