Mickey Mouse and His Space Ship was published in 1951 by Golden Books. I was two years old and my Mom would read this early science fiction adventure to me every night. Clearly, this began my love of Disney characters, especially Uncle Scrooge, and imaginative space adventures. I don’t remember many of my other kids books, but I sure remember this one after having it read to me about a thousand times. Jane Werner, Milton Banta, and John Ushler are listed as authors.
