Product Description

This annual is from 1975. Rupert often goes to exotic locales in his adventures. The clever device of having Rupert perpetually in the 1930's makes the locales that much more exotic. Cover shows Rupert talking to Merboy who is in the sea and holding shell full of fruit. A number of delightful Rupert stories contained within one book.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Glenn Cook HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 22 Jan. 2012
This volume was published in 1975.
Now when I look at the cover it looks really flat and two 2 dimensional. Rupert looks flat and without expression. Now this is fine within the book. Rupert character depiction is like that of Herge's Tintin. Bland and flat with hardly any detail. Often a couple of dots for eyes and a dash for mouths and ears so that the reader can easily imagine themselves to be Rupert (or Tintin). The colours on the cover look poor and bland but from Amazons picture has my book faded over the years?
On first his picture looks uninteresting. Rupert is being offered a shell full of fruit by a Merboy. BUT when you open the book fully and see the whole of the picture by Alex Cubie you realise that it is a fine picture indeed. The only trouble is the better detail is on the back of the book unlike other better predecessors.
The end papers again by Cubie entitled `On the Fringe of Linnet Wood' look fine but are let down in my humble opinion by the amateurish facial expressions on Rollo and a Spring Elf.
Otherwise it is fine.
The book has the regulation five stories and they follow the wonderful format of previous years being a fine mix of mystery, the mundane made interesting, fantastic objects and secret beings dwelling beneath Nutwood and if that's not all and threats from bad men to Sailor Sam!!.

I can see nothing that would offend the modern reader of today other than the fact that Rollo and his Grand Mother are referred to as Gypsies and possibly how the Chinese characters are written as sounding
Both sets, Chinese and `Travellers' are portrayed in a very positive light as being very important and wise characters and that is to be applauded when written in their day.

End paper - The Fringe of Linet Wood (not bad effort, slightly lacking detail)

Broken Plate best story, referance to "ze bad times"
