The Adventures of Mickey Mouse

The first appearance of Mickey Mouse in book form occurred in 1931. Presumably this was Minnie Mouse's first book appearance as well, and Donald Duck's too. The cover of The Adventures of Mickey Mouse, Book I shows the talented Mickey serenading Minnie with a one-stringed ukelele. Their tongues are far too prominent, but otherwise these are the classic pie-eyed Mickey and Minnie of the 1930's.
