Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Each of Donald's experiences features a unique final twist, perhaps none more memorable than what happens in Donald and The.... to a little white worm that Donald finds and is allowed to keep in a jar. In this book, in print for the first time since 1969, Gorey's arch illustrations complement a wry tale that readers of all ages will find infectious.

Synopsis:

This story features a sickly boy named Donald, whose little pet white worm becomes a housefly. The anti-climatic ending to this story pokes gentle fun at the childhood encounter with butterfly metamorphosis.
