Who Needs Donuts? (Reissue) (Hardcover) (Mark Alan Stamaty)
about this item
Sam’s love of donuts takes him to the Big City where he makes friends with Mr. Bikferd, a world class collector of donuts. But when Mr. Bikferd falls in love with Pretzel Annie, the prophecy of an old homeless woman comes true: “Who needs donuts when you’ve got love?” Mr. Bikferd bequeaths his donut collection to Sam, who uses it to save the old homeless woman from drowning in a basement flooded with coffee.This is a reissue of Mark Alan Stamaty’s masterpiece of the absurd, first published 30 years ago and out of print nearly as long. With an illustration style that mixes a benign Hieronymus Bosch with an urbanWhere’s Waldo?, Stamaty’s off-the-wall humor is on target for little kids and big kids today.
Young Sam leaves home to satisfy his craving for donuts, finds a job with Mr. Bikferd, a donut collector, and discovers the answer to the question, "Who needs donuts when you've got love?", in a reissue originally published in 1973. 15,000 first printing.
