VINTAGE ANNUAL BOOK
THE BEANO BOOK
The Beano Annual is the name of the book that has been published every year since 1939, to coincide with the children's comic The Beano. Since 2013 there have been 73 editions. The annuals are traditionally published in July or August, in time for Christmas, and since 1965 they have had the date of the following year on the cover. Before then no date was given.
Our book is the 1962 annual.
It has Jonah (with a seagull sitting on his head) dancing on the mast of a sinking ship with an "SOS" flag on it. His sailors hat has the bord BOOK underneath it, white two fish are looking at it with shocked faces. On the back cover, Jonah is wearing a vest and shorts while sitting on a giant turtle and playing a harmonica (mouth organ) and his sailor clothes are on the mast like a flag as the turtle looks on with a stunned face.
The inside has many cartoon stories with lots of cartoon drawings.
It is in great condition for a book which is over 50 years old.
