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.
