A Christmas Carol and Johnny Appleseed out this week!!!

We are delighted to publish A Christmas Carol this week in our new UK line - visit and scroll down. We are also now selling the CI Junior Johnny Appleseed from the Jack Lake stable out of Toronto - visit and scroll down. The cover for A Christmas Carol is the painted one that was originally available only in the UK series in the 'sixties. A vintage one of this cover will cost you over £200 in good condition - for £3.25 you get that historic cover plus superb inner artwork by the great Henry C. Kiefer. In fact, having seen the new film of this wonderful story, with Jim Carey as Scrooge, we see tremendous similarities in the film CGI version with Kiefer's artwork - a real treat for fans of Dickens and CI! Johnny Appleseed is a less well known story in the Junior series but, interestingly, we find young people really enoying these more obscure titles simply because the stories are new to them. We are now selling the first twelve issues of each series in superb presentation boxes and these can also be found at the web pages listed above. We feel sure you will be delighted by these and we can be sure to get them to you before Christmas if you order by 17th December. Best regards, Jeff
