The annual covers returned to hardback this year, following the war-time years of paperback.  This annual was the first to have specially created endpapers.
The stories Rupert and the Goosberry Fool, Rupert and the Paper Plane and Rupert and the Empty Cottage were especially written and illustrated for inclusion in this annual.
Rupert and the Travel Machine had first appeared in the Boys' and Girls' Book 1938
