About this deal

Biffo the Bear is painting a portrait of Big Eggo and all the other (then-current) characters on a large canvas. 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. Front: Dennis, Minnie, and Gnasher are practicing karate; Gnasher is wearing a karategi with a red belt.

This book also marked the 60th birthday of Dennis the Menace with a special logo that was displayed in the bottom-right corner of its front cover. Front: Dennis, Biffo the Bear, Walter and the Bash Street Kids are taking part in the "Beano Marathon". Back: Dennis's Dad tilts the trampoline and it bounces Dennis and Gnasher into the pond after they come down, covering them with water as the Bash Street Kids laugh at them. Front: Dennis and Gnasher are jumping on a trampoline trying to get apples from a tree and the Bash Street Kids are watching from over the fence while Dennis's Dad watches them from behind the tree angrily. Dennis kicks a football, which bounces off all the other then-current characters like a pinball and into a goal.

On the back cover, the horse (Treaclefoot) runs away, which causes them to fall into a river, as they were only halfway across upon the book's front cover. After paper rationing had ended, The Magic Comic was never revived, but some of the characters who had originally appeared in the pre-war Magic Comic remained as regular strips in the post-1950 Beano Comic (such as Koko the Pup). Back: Under a magnifying glass, we see Minnie, Billy Whizz, Plug, Toots, Wilf, and Tricky Dicky smiling up.

In 2002, World of Books Group was founded on an ethos to do good, protect the planet and support charities by enabling more goods to be reused. Biffo is wearing a crash helmet (which has "1968" on it) and Dennis, Minnie (who is wearing a black-and- yellow striped jumper), and Roger (who is wearing a red-and- yellow checked jumper), are throwing snowballs at him from in the background. Biffo is completing a jigsaw puzzle of the Bash Street Kids, which shows an angry dog chasing after the Teacher. Front: The first completely hand-drawn front cover picture since 1999, with a giant Loch Ness monster (whose face is very similar to Plug's) interfering with all the characters' relaxing swim up at "Loch Mess" (it is obviously a parody of Loch Ness).Read more about the condition Very Good: A book that has been read and does not look new, but is in excellent condition. Back: Many other kids from Beanotown are also seen boarding the train, and Bananaman is flying overhead with a rope, intending to pull the train along the tracks. Front: Dennis is standing on top of a podium holding the "Menace of the Year" award, while Minnie has won second place and Danny has won third place.
