A real bargain: four King Rollo stories: The New Shoes. The Birthday. The Bread, and The Tree in a single volume each being presented in strip format, four frames per page, so that the size of the original pictures and text is retained. For me and numerous children part of the charm of the originals was their small size: they slipped into pockets and other hiding places so easily not always an advantage in the classroom - and this is lost in the new packaging. This is nevertheless a very welcome paperback; perhaps it won't go missing quite so often.
