Doug Illustrates Cover for Novel on Canadian Hockey

McGonigle Scores!, written by Leslie McFarlane, was promoted as "thrills, excitement and laughs in a hockey story that's a real winner." McClelland and Stewart Limited published the paperback novel in 1966 - 2 years after Doug had his first full-page color cartoon published in Playboy.

McFarlane, who had written scores of television, radio and film scripts as well as an number of successful books, described McGonigle Scores! as "achieving a perfect balance of sports and humor . . . the story is a certain delight for all hockey fans and anyone who enjoys a fast-moving and highly entertaining tale.
