The Donald Boxed Book Set
- Two books, Donald and the . . . and Donald Has a Difficulty, published as a set for the first time
- Great bedtime stories
Meet Donald, a little boy who has little adventures that to him are very big indeed. In Donald and the . . .
, Donald finds a crawly creature. His mother lets him keep it in a jar, but soon it disappears. Donald takes to bed with painful ribs. But when he’s all better, he looks in the jar and discovers a fine surprise. In Donald Has a Difficulty
, when Donald hurts his leg, his mother (as wise as she is kind) knows just what to do. And Donald learns what hurts and what doesn’t—and that surprises him, too.View other Edward Gorey publications
