TV Mini-Book

(* Reposted from 1 June 2007 as I've managed to add some more illustrations.)

I'm not sure when and how many of these appeared -- presumably they were advertised in TV Comic but I don't have access to a run of that paper. I believe Sooty started appearing in 1954 so I'm guessing the books date from around that period.

T.V. Mini-Comic
1 Mills, Annette, Seven Muffin Adventures, illus. Neville Main.
3 Mills, Annette, Prudence Kitten Adventures, illus. Spike (Cyril Price). (uncertain)
4 Hearne, Richard, Mr. Pastry's Sportsday, illus. Lunt Roberts.
5 Beaman, Mrs. S. G. Hulme, Larry the Lamb and the Toy Town Flier.

7 Corbett, Harry, Sooty and his Magic, illus. Tony Hart.
8 Mills, Annette, Muffin the Mule, illus. Neville Main.
9 Mills, Annette, Prudence Kitten and Puffer Dog, illus. Murdoch and Phillips.
10 Corbett, Harry, Sooty Makes Magic, illus. Tony Hart.
11 Anon., Mr Peregrine and the Twins Esk and Moe.

(* Cover images have been grabbed from around the web, cleaned up the best I can manage. If anyone can fill in the gaps or supply any better scans I'd love to see them.)
