Little Golden Books
When the Little Golden Books were launched in 1942 at 25 cents each, they changed publishing history. For the first time, children’s books were high quality and low priced. They were available to almost all children, not just a privileged few. Little Golden Books were designed to be sturdy (a new concept), delightfully illustrated, and to be sold not only in bookstores, but department stores and other chains (another new concept).
Little Golden Books were an instant success story, even though World War II was on and paper shortages loomed. Five months after the launch, 1.5 million copies had been printed, and Little Golden Books were in their third printing.
Since then, over two billion Little Golden Books have reached the hands of children all over the world. Who hasn't heard of The Poky Little Puppy, star of the bestselling Little Golden Book of all? It has sold well over 15 million copies worldwide, in many different languages. Tootle the Train, The Saggy Baggy Elephant, The Shy Little Kitten, The Little Red Caboose, The Tawny Scrawny Lion, and Scuffy the Tugboat soon followed, to become household names.
