One of a series of charming small 1930s children's magazines. Covers in full colour generally VG Minus, but with rusting staples, some slight edgewear/tears, and browning/light foxing (light brown spots/patches) to the rear covers and to the (cheaper) text block paper. The front cover 'The Pop-Bang Pixies' is charming and is also the first story in the book.
