Bought this for my husband who has quite a collection of Fred Basset books (which are also read by the rest of the family!). This one was enjoyable even though we had seen some cartoons before and although most of these are not drawn by the original artist. Fred's "family" has been updated a bit...the wife now wears trousers and they have a computer etc. Otherwise, it's the same old Fred!

My moan last year seems to have been sorted, printed nicely on smooth paper, so :o) there

Still B&W though & having read all his annuals since 1964 you can't help but feel some of the stories seem a little familiar. Not heard Fred get GERRATAVIT yelled at him for decades though.

The comic strip seems very retro now, edging into old fashioned even. Other cartoons like BLONDIE the USA 1930s are still going yet seem more contemporary. FRED still seems stuck in 1980, with those 1930s fences & gates long since rotted away in real life, kids playing "Indians" which seems oddly non PC today & a pub full of 70s faces not a 'shaded' one in sight! An old fashioned community life around high street shops & events is still enjoyed by Fred's owners, the sort of life that sadly is fading away in most towns & cities.

The odd hint to modern life is there as they get a new LCD/Plasma TV & do glass recycling.

Still, it's like watching Stacey in the Jungle (I'm A Celeb), it's a nice break from real life & should be cherished by those lucky enough to own it.

Love reading Fred every day in the Mail-the author is obviously a 'dog' person the witticisms and comments by Fred are just so true to life!!

I have only had a quick look at this as I bought it as a stocking filler for my husband - I always get it for him then I can read it as well !! It is up to the usual standard of the Fred Stories. If you like Fred or know someone who does then I would say buy it.

I have also bought the calendar as well which is just as good. and again it needs a ***** rating.

When asked to review this item by Amazon I could not understand that this comes under 'Toys' and therefore I can not rate it in this section.

I had tried in a well known book store to purchase this book and was unable to do so.
The assistant did not know anything about this publication!!! Not so with Amazon.It came up as soon as I typed the title in. The delivery was prompt and it arrived in time to give as a Christmas Gift.
