  1. I have been looking for a picture story library book about a dress designing competition – the winner sticks some sparkly diamond shapes on a plain dress that has been splashed with ink by her rival and wins the competition. Does anyone have any ideas – I wondered if it could be the Judy picture story book “The Diamond Dress”. Thanks.

  2. Used to love getting Judy….My older sister got June and School friends, and my younger sister got Robin. The comics would arrive via the local newsagent and as long as we had done our chores and homework, we got our reward! That was in Perth, Western Australia in the 1960’s.

      1. “Robin” was a nursery comic like “Little Star”, “Twinkle” etc. it was aimed at both young boys and girls. It was published by Hulton Press (who also published Girl and Swift).

  3. I remember reading an old copy of a Judy annual as a child. The “paper sleeve” was missing from the cover, but I seem to remember the edition having a pink and cream cover. I think there was a comic strip about ballet shoes, possibly a ballerina whose ballet shoes had been damaged or sabotaged, and she finds a solution at the end? Wee Slavey was definitely in there, and a character who was brushing her hair a hundred times[?] (to get the curls out) before bed?

    I’d love to know which year it was published.

    1. This may be Judy Annual 1973. It has a pink and cream inside cover (photo of a girl with a suit of armour), a story about ballet shoes (“Sandra and the Silver Shoes” – shoes won’t let the wearer stop dancing because they have a drug hidden in the toes) and Wee Slavey (she gets a threepenny bit out of the Christmas pudding). Can’t see a story about hair brushing, but there is a feature about exotic hairstyles.

      More details and pictures from the stories here:


    1. I don’t know if this is what prompted your query, but you may have seen that somebody is currently offering this on eBay for £200. I personally think that is over the top. I’ve seen some recent eBay sales of early numbers of Judy picture libraries (say, the first 20 titles) sell for around £20. No doubt there will be a premium on this one because it’s Number 1 of the series, but £60-80 seems to me to be nearer the mark. However, that’s just my guesswork.
