Yes, this Little Goldie Book (which slipped through the cracks during LGB tribute week) exposed kids to a horrifying secret about Ol’ St. Nick.. And that secret is that Santa’s budget matches that of the household to which presents are delivered. If you ever wondered why the rich kids got the best presents even though they were obnoxious little brats all year long, now you know. Discovered under the canned goods shelf during the remodeling of the Fare-deal Market in Altoona, IA.

Despite the controversy, we felt the need for posterity’s sake to post a picture of this “very special episode” of Goldie Books. It’s bad enough they tempt us with pots of gold and wishes, but seriously, this goes too far. Thanks to the Super Swap Meet in Blair, NE for this horrific tale of “stranger danger”. We hope you’ve enjoyed our week of Little Goldie Book goodness!

Who knew Walt’s disdain for parents went as far as the ugly duckling’s mom? Birds is birds, I suppose. This classic book, which was found in a dentist’s waiting room in Jeanerette, Louisiana, most likely scarred more kids than Bambi ever did.

Today’s post begins a week-long tribute to Little Goldie Books. I’m sure many 40-something satanists still have fond memories of this little gem, which was buried in a stack of Life magazines in a basement in Salt Lake City until recently.

Here’s a classic Little Goldie Book (found at a rummage sale in Florence, Alabama) that teaches kids a valuable life lesson. We’ve all had bad days, but Mr. Bear’s might just be the worst. Boy, it’s hard to find these things in mint condition!
