Scrooge McDuck Wikia

The Secret Book is one-pager written and drawn by Carl Barks. It features Scrooge McDuck and the Book Conman.


A conman manages to sell Scrooge McDuck a book entitled "How to Make Money"; much to Scrooge's dismay, it turns out that said book only contains one sentence, "Get a job". However, McDuck won't be outfoxed so easily and cooks up a revenge scheme…

Behind the scenes

While it was written in 1956, this one-pager was only printed four years later, for unknown reasons, in the 1960 Uncle Scrooge #31. It was then reprinted in Uncle Scrooge #157, the Gladstone Comic Album #24, Walt Disney's Comics in Color #3, and, of course, in all versions of the Carl Barks Library.
