The Top 50 bestsellers chart for week-ending 6 January continues to feature Beano Annual (#26, 6,629) and Bratz Annual (#28, 6,005). All annuals now seem to be in the shops at prices as low as 99p, so if you haven't picked up the ones you want, now's the time to do it. Even the coveted Doctor Who Annual can be found at the same knockdown price.
