Little Golden Book Monday #144

Today's Little Golden Book is Walt Disney Productions, Bedknobs and Broomsticks (1971 edition). I am always happy to find older Disney themed Little Golden Books such as this one, and I'm even happier when they are is good shape!
I'll admit, that I have never actually watched the movie all the way through, even though I own a copy of the movie on DVD. It was a Christmas present from a relative last year. They know that both my wife and I love Disney and so it makes sense that this would be an acceptable gift. Not sure why they chose this particular movie from the hundreds of Disney DVD titles to choose from though? We started watching it one night, shortly after we got it, but never did end up watching it all the way to the end. Maybe someday.

Little Golden Book Monday #143

Today's Little Golden Book is Walt Disney's, Mickey Mouse's Picnic originally printed in 1950. This copy is the fourteenth printing from 1974. I was happy to find this great vintage Disney Little Golden Book in near mint condition. I already have a number of copies of this book, but this is the first copy that does not look like it was chewed by the family dog.
Here is the cover, along with a few of my favorite interior illustrations. The best is the illustration of Minnie Mouse showing Mickey the knife that she has taped to the bottom of the cake pan. Seems to me that Minnie is practicing, just in case Mickey ever ends up in prison, although I always thought you were supposed to put the knife inside the cake, not tape it to the bottom of the pan.
