Little Golden Book Monday #111

Today's Little Golden Book is Walt Disney's Dumbo. This edition was originally published in 1941 in slightly different form by Simon and Schuster, Inc. This is the first Random House Edition from 2004 and features the original artwork from the 1941 edition and it is absolutly wonderful. Along with the cover I have scanned two images from the inside. One is a great full page illustration of Dumbo being pushed out a window of a burning house at the circus. The other is an illustration of the crows from the story. The crows have always been some of my favorite Disney characters and I love their song in the film "When I See an Elephant Fly".
