For those of you not already wrapping yourselves in the comforting blanket of nostalgia, I suppose an introduction is warranted. However, the spells cast by Mr Benn do not turn out as expected, and Mr Benn eventually convinces the Queen that how the King looks is not important.

Be taken back into the wonderful whimsical world of Mr Benn and his charming adventures - dressed in his distinctive black suit and bowler hat, Mr Benn first leaves the ordinary world of 52 Festive Road 'where nothing remarkable ever happened' when he receives an invitation to a fancy dress party. If you have ever wished you could turn a weedy uncle into an inflatable fairy or a bad-tempered friend into an exploding pencil case then this is the book for you! Mr Benn helps the crew of a pirate ship, who are determined not to be pirates, turn their Captain into an honest man, and see that he gets a very different sort of treasure for his island: trees from a crew of gardeners whose ship the pirates pretend to capture, but actually rescue, during a storm. In this story, a red suit of armour catches Mr Benn's eye, and when he tries it on he finds himself transported to a land full of castles, dungeons and dragons!The cover may have some limited signs of wear but the pages are clean, intact and the spine remains undamaged. The pre-loved books are carefully cleaned and maintained offering a wide variety of general and specialist titles from children's to adults.

With intricate artwork, the colour images have an almost 3D effect and the line art pen and ink drawings simply delightful. The sixth, never completed, was Superbenn, in which the superhero Mr Benn sets out on an environmental adventure.

Elmer the Patchwork Elephant is an elephant who stands out from the herd, and Elmer’s app is different too. Fortunately, Mr Benn and his friends come up with an ingenious plan to save all the gladiators and give the Emperor a taste of his own medicine. I particularly loved the way in which he shifts between his trademark, intricately detailed black ink drawings to a big colour splash page, often using large blocks of white space for extra emphasis and occasionally dropping in some bizarre 360 degree layouts as the cherry on top. Summary: Give yourself over to nostalgia with this collection of four stories based on the Mr Benn TV series.
