Description: Rare annual featuring many, many stories and fairy tales for young readers. The stories are mostly in picture strip format and are beautifully illustrated in full colour and three-tone monochrome. Also includes plenty of puzzles, games, and opportunities for the little ones to hone their artistic skills. Almost all of the above have been completed using a mixture of pencil, felt tip and watercolour. It has to be said, however, that the pictures have been very neatly and skilfully coloured in.
Overall, the annual is in outstanding condition. The only factors denying this book mint condition are a rather faded spine (once was red; is now orange); some very minor chips to the corners; and, of course, the fact that virtually all the puzzles have been solved and pictures coloured in. The front and rear boards are superb (the scan doesn't do it justice), as are the pages, which are totally free from marks, tanning or foxing. Technicolor illustrations!
Measures 12″ × 9″ (30 cm × 22.5 cm). 4to. 77 pp.
