If there were any weak spots in the magnificent first published volume in this series (Walt Disney's Donald Duck: Lost in the Andes (The Complete Carl Barks Disney Library)), then it was surely the two included Christmas-stories, which were somewhat below the high water mark set by Barks in his 'golden' period. However, Barks DID produce a fair amount of memorable Christmas-stories - it possibly helped that Barks view of Christmas was a actually little bit cynical - Barks' seasonal stories tended to be well-balanced and not too saccharine.
In this volume we get the title story "A Christmas for Shacktown" which may very well be the best Christmas story Barks ever made. It's just wonderful, from his use of Dickensian kids in Duckburg's poor quarter, to the haunting big black hole in the ground that swallows all Scrooge's money.... This story is a real seasonal classic!
This volume features the stories published immediately prior to the stories in Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge: Only A Poor Old Man (Complete Carl Barks Disney Library). If you're mainly in it for the Scrooge-character, then you still need this book - even though it mainly focuses on Donald and the Nephews, it still features some all time classic Scrooge moments, including the first appearance of his famous Money Bin.Read more ›
I recommend especially to folks that grew up reading and traveling in our imagination and living those adventures but also to the young’s to see how supreme they are.

I read these as a child, and I really enjoyed reading them again. Carl Barks and Hergé shared the ability to describe the world, whitout even travelling themselves. Read morePublished on 7 Nov. 2013 by K. Ãrsell
