Wow when I saw this it threw me back to my primary school days, I can remember reading these books, taking them home and having mum read them with you. I think it also inspired my mum to buy me for Christmas once a HUGE picture Bible. I read that twice and had many questions my mum could not answer ha ha ha and it is ironic that I have indeed not so long ago asked vicars and religious people the same questions!!!!
I love the "oh well its God's plan" or "this is how it is supposed to be". I have found the answers out for myself since 2008 but that is not about stamps lol lol.
I wonder how many proffessional people will find things wrong with the content in these books and supposedly hidden meanings blah blah, you know like Andy Pandy and Magic Roundabout.....
However these were the days of innocence!!!!
