The Peet That Roared

Little Saturday Extra.

In october last year I came across two charming Bill Peet articles from Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse Club Magazine. Bill Peet was an important storyman for Disney in the fifties, who left after a dispute with the boss over Junglebook and made himself a nice new career as children's book writer and illustrator.

Since then I have run across other articles written and ilustrated by Peet in the same magazine. Enough to make me belief he might have been in every issue from a certain point in the second year. One of these pieces is the next part of one I showed earlier, the last one a particulary impressive mouse tale.

If I had a blog that was devoted to animation, I would hunt down all of these issues and make a list or do an article on all of them. Hey, if someone asks, I still might.

Follow the tag for the others.

Wow, thank you so much for posting these! I tracked down all of Peet's picture books, but had never seen this work before. If you find any more, please do post them!
