Just finished reading "Walt Disney's Donald Duck - The Fabulous Diamond Fountain" first published back in 1967 as the ninth book in the 2000 series of Whitman's last hardcover Big Little Books. For those who came in late, Jeff H. had previously asked if I had ever read any of the Big Little Books in my BLB collection - of which i have several hundred from 1920s-on-up-the present. Now I did read all of the 2000 series of BLBs when they were first published back in the late 1960s in hardcover by Whitman; but that was quite a few decades ago. So to keep Jeff happy - Zack is so less demanding - I bought three hardbacks in the 2000 series on eBay and have begun reading them in response to Jeff's unspoken challenge - "Do you really like BLBs Joseph, or is it a just another collectible item you're hoarding, I mean collecting?" Of course I like BLBs.I have fond memories of reading them when I was a child. So I decided to see if these three BLBs I won on eBay aged well when I read them. [Note to BLB collectors - the BLBs I won on eBay are in very good condition and after being read, they are being preserved in the approved manner by BLB Club Standards.] "Donald Duck - The Fabulous Diamond Fountain" was written by Carl Fallberg back in 1967 and is perhaps one of the earliest incarnations of a "Duck Tales" adventure. It definitively has all the elements! Huey, Dewey, and Louie are intrigued when they hear Salty Sam's story on their favorite television show "What's Your Adventure?" Salty Sam tells of being marooned on a tropical island where the natives worship a volcano that erupts not lava - but a fabulous amount of diamonds!Read more ›
