Little Golden Books is a popular series of children's books . The eighth book in the series, The Poky Little Puppy , is the top-selling children's book of all time. [1] Many of the Little Golden Books have become bestsellers, [1] including The Poky Little Puppy , Tootle , Scuffy the Tugboat , and The Little Red Hen . Several of the illustrators for the Little Golden Books later became staples within the picture book industry, including Corinne Malvern , Tibor Gergely , Gustaf Tenggren , Feodor Rojankovsky , Richard Scarry , Eloise Wilkin , and Garth Williams .

The series originated with Simon & Schuster ; Western Printing and Lithographing Company in Racine, Wisconsin was Simon & Schuster's partner in the Little Golden Books venture, with Western handling the actual printing. Ownership and control of the series has changed several times since; Little Golden Books are currently published by Penguin Random House .

Although the details have changed over the years, the Little Golden Books have maintained a distinctive appearance. A copy of The Poky Little Puppy bought today is essentially the same as one printed in 1942. Both are readily recognizable as Little Golden Books. At the time of the series' golden anniversary in 1992, Golden Books claimed that a billion and a half Little Golden Books had been sold. [2]

Although the Little Golden Books have remained the backbone of the product line, the enterprise that produced the Little Golden Books has created a variety of children's books in various formats, including records, tapes, videos, and even toys and games. Some titles have appeared in several different formats (including "A Golden Book").

Little Golden Books was the brainchild of Georges Duplaix , who in 1940 was head of Artists and Writers Guild Inc., a division of Western Publishing tasked with developing new children's books. Meanwhile, a shared printing plant led Western and Simon & Schuster to develop a close relationship. In 1938, the first joint effort between Western and Simon & Schuster, A Children’s History, was published. [3]

Duplaix had the idea to produce a colorful, more durable and affordable children’s book than those being published at that time which sold for $2 to $3. With the help of Lucile Olge, also working at the Guild, Duplaix contacted Albert Leventhal, a vice president and sales manager at Simon & Schuster, and Leon Shimkin , also at Simon & Schuster, with his idea.
