> Uncle Scrooge - The Lemonade King (1960), a hardcover children's book
> by Barks for $350.
My older brother had this book and one other U$ when he was a kid and I somehow
(luckily) inherited them. Until now I thought they were most likely
worthless to non-duck fans. Of course, they're still worth more to me than
I think anyone would ever be likely to offer--in cash anyway.
The first one, _Uncle Scrooge: The Lemonade King_, is credited as "Pictures
by Carl Barks and Norm McGary". It also has my brothers signature in the
front, and *plenty* of crayon marks--made by me, if I remember correctly.
Maybe I should take it as some kind of sign that I should change my career
and draw ducks....
The second book, _Uncle Scrooge: Rainbow Runaway_, was published in 1965
and is credited as "by Homer Brightman, illustrated by Frank McSavage and
Tony Stroobl". This one is also, surprisingly, devoid of everything but my
brother's name. I guess maybe he wised up and hid this one from me.
Are ther more books like this? They were both published by Whitman. The
first is a "Top Top Tales" book, and the second is a "Whitman BIG Tell-a-Tale".
Both are fairly small, about 6 to 7 inches in height, and about 20 pages long.
Should I expect to have to pay big bucks for others if they exist and I ever
run across them?
On a mostly different topic, I just ordered my new Missouri license plate,
"MCDUCK". I'm guessing it's probably not already taken....
