This extensively researched 60 page book by Martin Hockley is the official and definitive full colour 'Collector's Guide' to the 'Toby Twirl Adventure Books' and other collectable items. Toby Twirl was a popular children's story character published between 1946 - 1958, similar in style to Rupert Bear. These delightful books, written by Sheila Hodgetts and illustrated by Edward Jeffrey, are now equally very sought after by the new collector as those who remember them as their childhood favourite.
The 'Collector's Guide' tells the story of 'Toby Twirl' featuring exclusive photographs and biography sections for Sheila Hodgetts and Edward Jeffrey. The book also includes an up to date value guide with full colour pictures of the 'Toby Twirl' books, collectable items and 'rarities'. The value guide is based on items in 'VG' condition, however, the guide also explains how to grade and value books in better, worse or in between conditions.
