PENGUIN PORPOISE BOOKS




THIS PAGE 'J' J1 - J4






Penguin wanted to enter the hardback part of the children's book market. They produced four books, all in September 1948, but pressure on paper-rationing stopped further production in this series.

The first book published, number 'J1' was Aladdin and his Wonderful Lamp, illustrated by John Harwood. These books were produced introduced a large format, with a size of 8¾" x 7". and had dust jackets.
