I would be most grateful for further information on the titles as they are indexed. An * denotes that this title is available for swapping. but not necessarily the edition/s described.

Bunnikin's Picnic Party *

The very first title in the original 401 series. First published in 1940. The first edition would have a Dust Jacket. Written in verse.

The author of the original story was A J Macgregor who was also the illustrator, with revised verses by W.Perring. The up-dated cover depicts a scene portrayed in the book. The earlier mounted image as seen on the circa 1967 is specific to the cover.
