I agree it's a very good story, but the basic idea looks a lot like Barks'
"Stranger than fiction".
> (C) Least favorite story: "Super Snooper Strikes Again"
I think I agree with you, if the Dutch stories by Jan Kruse don't count.

I quote a letter of myself here (from the times that Don wasn't on the list

This doesn't mean that I'm a Rosa-hater...
And now, from Rosa to Rota:

I have some, as far as they appeared in Holland. The next is a result of
a 'grep' from my Dutch index. I edited it a bit, but I kept the Dutch
descriptions (and the Italian entries).
