Available for the first time since 1970, this quirky tale is vintage Gorey. Poor Donald has a splinter in his foot. His mother distracts him, urging him to think of markets, strings, and battles. But when she treats the wound with alcohol, Donald's difficulty reaches a whole new level. Gorey's ominous, inimitable artwork is captivating to both children and adults, and Donald's difficulty is sure to be intensely felt by all.
