Alfred Bestall - Rupert annual 1956 Oh I LOVED Rupert as a child. Such good adventures!

This was one of my absolute favourites when I was little...

  • Rio Vance

    Also one of my favourites!

  • Prue Batten

    I had forgotten about it until I saw the name Pookie somewhere last night and immediately had to google to find if the book was available. Amazon have it but at THE most astonishing price. I wish I still had mine.
