Read full description of the books:
The first half of this book contains a nice collection of Al Taliaferro's Donald Duck comic strip (long overdue) and, on its own, gets a strong 4 stars. I can't give it a perfect five for two reasons. First is that this is a reprint of a reprint and retains the first reprint's blotchy coloring. Secondly, a handful of the strips really weren't up to the quality of the rest; this is especially maddening because some of the very best Taliaferro strips weren't included but could have been if it wasn't for these weaker strips taking up space.
The second half of the book, a comics tie-in to Walt Disney's "Reluctant Dragon" feature, certainly isn't terrible but isn't really good either and brings the overall rating down to 3 stars.
Still, the first half was totally worth the money I forked over, and I think you'll feel the same way too. I've been wanting a more durable collection of Taliaferro's stuff, and this book gave me just that.

Read information about the authorCharles Alfred Taliaferro, known simply as Al Taliaferro, was a Disney comics artist who used to produce Disney comic strips for King Features Syndicate. Many of his strips were written by Bob Karp.
He is best-known for his work on the Donald Duck comic strip, but he started his career lettering the Mickey Mouse strips (March 1931 - July 1932), and drew the Bucky Bug comics in 1932 as well as Silly Symphonies pages from 1932 to 1939. Taliaferro co-created a number of characters, including Huey, Dewey and Louie, Bolivar, Grandma Duck, and arguably Daisy Duck. He drew Donald Duck comic strips from 1938 until his death in 1969 in Glendale, California.
After his family moved to Glendale, Al studied art at the "Institute of Art" in California. On January 5, 1931 he was hired in Disney Studios as an animator, but soon transferred to the comic strip department. At its height the Donald Duck comic strips was published in 322 newspapers.
While many of Taliaferro's strips were reprinted in Disney comic books, in only a few instances did he do original artwork for comic books. Among these was the Cheerios Premium Giveaway Donald Duck: Counter Spy (1947) and the cover of Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #107 (August 1949) . Two Children's books with Disney characters he illustrated are Donald and His Cat Troubles(1948) and Donald Duck and the Hidden Gold (1951).
The Taliaferros trace their origins to Northern Italy and were one the early families who settled in Virginia in the 17th century. The family name, originally Tagliaferro, literally means Ironcutter in Italian.
