A Little Child Shall Lead Them, also printed as Escape Goat, is a comic story written by Homer Brightman and drawn by Al Taliaferro; it features Donald Duck.


Donald Duck, who is mountain-climbing, comes face-to-face with a large mountain goat. Surprised that the animal flees before him instead of attacking, Donald decides to have some fun with it and chase the poor creature to its den. Unfortunately, once there, he finds not all goats are that passive.
