Large Print edition of Cobbler's Dream
« on: May 20, 2010, 02:03:43 PM »
Just when I think I've seen all the publications of Cobblers Dream...up pops another one! This version was published in 1978 and is in large print format. I quite like the cover, it's certainly better than some I've seen!

Well done, Suzy. A great and unusual find.

I discovered a hb copy of Monica Dicken's 'The House at Worlds End' in my library's book sale this week. I paid just 20p for it!!!!  Unfortunately no Follyfoot books.  :(

Very nice cover and an excellent bargain Suzy! I LOVED the World's end books as a kid, could not get enough of them. More than Follyfoot books that had many darker themes in them. The hoof that was cut... Can't think of that without shivering still... :(

Not a pretty one: Callie was given a bloody hoof of a horse wrapped in paper, she was bullied at school.  :o :( So Monica's books were definitelly not just happy and light children's stories...

Er..Yes.

Paul/Steve beat him up, didn't he?  ::) And then got mowed down by the Louse's biker brother resulting in a broken leg for our knight in shining armour.

That's right Sue.... far too violent for the tv programme.

I don't know, Loopy, the fight between Steve and Johnny Clegg was quite fierce and bloody.
