Walt Disney's Donald Duck: Donald's Happiest Adventures (Hardcover)
Acclaimed French cartoonists Lewis Trondheim and Nicolas Kéramidas present a mind-bending Duckburg graphic novel!
When Donald grouses that money will never buy Uncle Scrooge happiness, Scrooge snaps — and sets Donald on a treasure hunt for happiness itself. A terrible task for an unlucky Duck… or is it? With help from Professor Ludwig Von Drake, deep in the cranky kingdom of Brutopia — the impossible may be possible!
Presented as a "lost" 1960s Disney story — complete with retro-style color — Donald's Happiest Adventures bristles with wit in the Carl Barks tradition… and bustles with the whole Disney comics cast, including friends and rivals Gladstone Gander, Mickey Mouse, and Pegleg Pete!

I feel happier for finally reading this book.

The entire book, with a wild plot that might find Donald in the snowy Himalayas on one page and lying on a beach on the next, is something of a meditation on happiness. ... It is a fun adventure.
