It’s time for a fun Knott’s Berry Farm souvenir. In case you live under a rock and where unaware, be sure and check out “Knott’s Preserved”, Chris Merritts’ new Knott’s book and related signing event at Knott’s on April 18th (link) – I’ll be there!
This fun little book “The Knott’s Berry Farm Burro – in Ghost Town” is from 1955 and features some great illustrations. I don’t think Knott’s did very many books like this; in fact, this is the only one I’ve seen other than the Bear-y Tales book (link). Disney and Disneyland had tons of kid’s books over the years, I’m wondering if Knott’s produced this book in 1955 by coincidence or were they just trying to get an edge on Disneyland.
I was going to post just a few pages and save the rest for Bonus Sunday but what the heck, here’s the whole book – enjoy.
