Jasmine and the missing coin

Pointed to me by livejournal-ist mdmbrightside from the d_princess community.
In the line of Disney Princess books a new Jasmine title was released last January. Amazon has the following summary
“Life at the palace is splendid for Princess Jasmine and Prince Aladdin. With Aladdin’s birthday coming up, Jasmine wants to find him the perfect gift, so she sets off on a Magic Carpet ride with Rajah the tiger. She is determined to track down the coveted camel coin Aladdin is missing from his rare-coin collection. It’s smooth sailing until Magic Carpet suddenly loses its power, leaving Jasmine and Rajah stranded in the desert! Will the pair find the coin and make it back to the palace in time for Aladdin’s birthday?”
It sounds a bit weak but I guess that’s what you can expect when there’s the Disney Princess stam on it.
I love the cover and ordered it from bol.com for that alone according to a reviewer at Amazon the other illustations have a “beautiful and Summer-y” feel on it.

Carpet sketches by Ed Gombert

Drawn2gether, an animation blog run by a handful of (ex) Disney animators remising working at Disney during the second golden age of animation. Roughly 10 years from The Little Mermaid (1989) up to Tarzan (1999). In the archive for Aladdin I foundsketches of the Magic Carpet by Eb Gombert, he made one of the earliest storyboards and character sketches. Of course because it’s a rug the design didn’t change that much as the production hummed along. The post reveals that Tom Cardone did Carpet’s Arabian pattern design for the table cloth. IMDB credits him as background artist for a number of Disney productions up to The Little Matchgirl.
