Seven Dwarfs Find A House - Little Golden Book

Walt Disney's Seven Dwarfs Find A House is a Little Golden Book (#D67) with vintage, yet fresh looking cover art. Original retail price 25¢. Contains a total of 24 pages (not including hard covers).



The story is told by Annie North Bedford, adapted by Julius Svendsen, and with pictures by the Walt Disney Studio. Published by Simon and Schuster.



This particular edition is copyrighted 1948, 1952 by Walt Disney Productions.



Obviously this is a Little Golden Book which means the story is meant for very young readers. We start out by learning there's seven dwarfs who sleep out in the forest because they have no home.



Coming to the rescue are the forest animals who lead the "seven little men" to an empty house which they simply claim as their own. Life is so easy sometimes.



Without a Snow White to guide them (she does not appear in the book), the dwarfs actually clean the cottage, wash up for dinner, and make the food all on their own.



In their normal fashion, they end the day with some good music.

Story and artwork copyright Disney.


A special thanks to Disney buff Dan Alexander Dizmentia who found and donated this Little Golden Book to the Filmic Light Collection.
