"The story for the first book was written by Bobette Bido, the eleven-year-old daughter of one of the co-publishers. Charlotte Clark, the woman who made the first Mickey Mouse stuffed dolls sold the book a short while, along with her dolls. The book was a small venture, and a relatively small number was produced. Today the few that survive are eagerly sought by collectors."
