Haunted Mansion Picture Book and CD

I love Disney books of every type, but I've always had a special fondness for those about the Parks. Be it a behind the scenes look at the making of EPCOT, or an adventure through the Magic Kingdom, I just can't seem to resist books about the happiest place on earth. Well, this summer, I'll have a new book to add to my library: The Haunted Mansion.

The first in a new series of picture books for kids and adults alike, "Disney Parks Presents" will feature original artwork inspired by rides and attractions, as well as a CD of music from the ride. The Haunted Mansion features artwork by London based artist James Gilleard, and lyrics from the ride by Xavier Atencio. A CD inside the front cover contains a 5 minute and 32 second tour through the ride, including "Grim Grinning Ghosts" with music by Buddy Baker.

The artwork is fun and vibrant, and even features familiar sights from the ride, such as the clock striking 13 and the hidden Mickey from the ballroom. Additional books in the series will feature Pirates of the Caribbean and the Jungle Cruise. The books can be found in the Disney Parks or at other retailers nationwide starting on July 5 and retails for $17.99.
