Walt Disney Studios Staff, Illustrated by Walt Disney Studios  
PECULIAR PENGUINS From a Walt Disney Silly Symphony
 Picture
Publisher: David McKay Philadelphia, 1934.
Condition: VG-/NONE. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover Color Illus; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 45 pages; This is a sweetly illustrated juvenile book. The Walt Disney Studios Staff wrote and illustrated it. All about Penguins at the South Pole, how they eat ice cream, keep warm and play. Illustrations are in color. Solid. I found one very small closed tears at the bottom of page 45, not affecting text or illustrations. The book shows a little age on covers but no tears - just not new looking - so you know it isn't a recent reprint! The penguins are adorable and the story is well done.
