"Rupert visits Coon Island" (!)

Legaleze: “Rupert Bear” is the property of Entertainment Rights Distribution Limited and Express Newspapers

Some of you may know of or even be fans of Rupert Bear (as seen on TV!). A friend found this while she was working at Value Village and lent it to me to scan. This is the “1960 Daily Express Annual”, published by Beaverbrook Newspapers (Great Britain, 1960) and is available online from various used booksellers. The “Rupert and the Diamond Leaf” story, in which he visits “Coon Island” particularly caught my eye for obvious reasons!

Anyway, it was definitely a surprise…!
