It's OK but could have been much better (and probably rated only 2 star). Four stories, three of them repeats from earlier editions and the new fourth one was of moderate quality. Seems that the editors (or whoever) have lost interest in this annual, even though it has a long history and Rupert stories have been around for longer than this. It is a tradition that needs a bit of TLC.
If they are going to repeat any tales, maybe stories from the early editions would be better and with possible modifications in the pictures. But collectors (and everyone else) deserve new stories with a bit of thought behind them. And at least 6 tales per annual. Providing the current 4 is just being lazy.
I will continue to purchase but will re-evaluate on a yearly basis.
