Arild Midthun’s Christmas story A Christmas Crossing (D 2019-009) isn’t entirely a masterpiece (to me) because of there are ubiquitous Beagleboys everywhere and bacause of its odd finale with the Miss Quackfaster. But otherwise it’s good and is one of my favorites these days along with Clues of the Klondike (D 2017-092).
In the A Christmas Crossing (D 2019-009), Scrooge, after becoming a millionaire, closes White Horse’s bank and, along with Goldie, they left to transport six barrels of money across America to Scotland. But the Beagleboys chase them and lurk in every city and train.
And in the Clues of the Klondike (D 2017-092), Scrooge, in his early days of the Klondike gold rush, solves a disguised robbery of his gold with a super-intelligent and mathematically talented circus bear. This story is funny and leaves the reader to decide if it is true at all.

I pretty much agree with this. The one thing I do like with Quackfaster’s appearence is how it ties in with the aunt in Korhonen’s McDuck Diaries.
I was more happy about EQ's appearance in Christmas Crossing than the two of you were--I liked the story a lot. (Hoping Super Picsou Geant or Picsou will publish it this December!!) But I do agree with fredj that it's nice how her appearance in this story ties in with the aunt in Korhonen's McDuck Diaries.
A new book has just been published in Sweden: "Farbror Joakims växelrika liv"
The description says: ""The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck", Don Rosa's masterpiece, is probably the most famous story of Scrooge McDuck. But many other authors and artists have created their own interpretations of Uncle Scrooge's past. In this book, we've gathered the best of these comics to show just how varied Uncle Scrooge's life really is."
