Its stories come from nine Disney movies and nine Disney cartoons. The movie narratives are:
* "Sleeping Beauty"
* "Lady" (from "Lady and the Tramp"
* "Mary Poppins"
* "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs"
* "The Mad Hatter's Tea Party" (from "Alice in Wonderland")
* "Dumbo of the Circus" (the story of "Dumbo")
* "101 Dalmatians"
* "Peter Pan"
The cartoon tales are:
* "Pedro" (one of the animated shorts in the 1942 film "Saludos Amigos")
* "Once Upon A Wintertime" (a short from 1948's "Melody Time")
* "Three Little Pigs" (a 1933 Silly Symphonies cartoon)
* "The Grasshopper and the Ants" (a 1934 Silly Symphony)
* "Johnny Appleseed" (a "Melody Time" animated featurette)
* "The Tortoise and the Hare" (a 1935 Silly Symphony)
* "Scamp" (the story of Lady and the Tramp's son, the basis of 2001's "Scamp's Adventure")
* "Bootle Beetle's Adventure" (from "Bootle Beetle," a 1947 Donald Duck cartoon)
* "The Old Mill" (a 1937 Silly Symphony)
Each story is 10 to 20 pages, with less words (and larger type) than its original Little Golden Book, but at least one illustration per page. The style of art varies. "The Grasshopper and the Ants" uses muted watercolors. "Three Little Pigs" has some sepia-toned pencil sketches. "Alice in Wonderland" and "Once Upon a Wintertime" feature artist Mary Blair's vibrant use of white. And "Mary Poppins" literally pops off the page, with a vivid rainbow of colors straight from the 1960s.
If you buy this book, you'll keep it forever.
The book is well bound and of good quality. What I really like
is that it matches the other Disney books in size and style and so looks nice on the shelf.
Each story is accompanied by wonderful illustrations, and the stories have been beautifully shortened to make for perfect reading length to keep your youngsters attention.
Over all this is a great book, and will make a wonderful addition to your nursery.
