My math is pretty good --won't 2013 be a little late?

Book arrived today!

As I'm one of the beginner collectors, I saw this as a great chance to secure a publication that I strongly believe will have a collection value in the future. (When the 1989 Oliphaunt: Beastly Verse was published, I was still in primary school.) Perhaps this is already being reflected in the evolution of the price: I bought it a week ago for £16.76 and the same bookseller now has it for £31.44. I should say, though, that it can be ordered for a much cheaper price from the publishers' own website, at least for the moment being.

Since the publishers, The Child's World, have chosen to show off the entire book on their website, it's perfectly open for anyone to form their own opinion of the illustrations or investigate the contents of the book.

Produced as a "School & Library Binding", the quality is top notch: sturdy covers, glossy finish (plastic film), alkaline paper (slows the degradation of paper quality). Indeed made to survive many a child's rough reading!

I am not connected with the seller; this is solely a Public Service Announcement.

Believe it or not, the last copy of the Easton Press Letters from Father Christmas sold on Ebay for a BIN of STG£449 recently.

Hi Stu,

Just noticed that you don't have the Easton Press Tales From the Perilous Realm in your list - did you miss this one when it came out in 2009?

I think the cover is very uninspired, frankly. Too plain for my taste, looks slapped together.


Also, "Letters from Father Christmas." But don't worry, here's a cheap copy for sale:
