Abstract:

"Huey, Dewey, and Louie resolve to brighten Christmas for the suffering children of Shacktown with help from Uncle Scrooge--but Scrooge has just suffered his own tragedy: he's lost all his money, every dime!"--Page 4 of cover.

In this collection of stories, originally published during the 1950s, follow the epic adventures of Donald Duck and his nephews, Huey, Louie, and Dewey. From finding Christmas joy for the less fortunate, to discovering a treasure in the steaming jungles of British Guiana, Barks displayed an inventive and amusing genius and created now-iconic situations for his characters.
