IT'S CHRISTMAS EVE, and Mickey must use Santa's sleigh to help deliver the Christmas mail! Originally published in 1956, this classic Little Golden Book features vintage Disney artwork that is sure to delight young readers.

(see this book on Goodreads)

This is actually pretty cute. A bit dated, yes, but it also has a fairly decent story.

Mickey Mouse gets lost on Christmas Eve delivering mail in his plane and ends up at the North Pole. There, he's offered the use of Santa's old sleigh and his retired reindeer (which are actually kind of hilarious, with their glasses and little white beards) to finish the job.

This one's been around for a while, and with the exception of a few illustrations that look like they're from the 1950s, it's held up pretty well. I don't know why the airport needs Mickey Mouse in particular to deliver mail, but whatever.

Premise: 3/5
