Snippets: This was the first annual by Stuart Trotter and the the stories were new for this annual. The main trade run of this annual had padded cover, but in addition a further 2000 copies were produced with the traditional hard board covers. Stuart introduced a new character to join Rupert's chums - Clara the Cat. He also kept the origami alive. He was not, however, comissioned to produce a piece of "Follow Rupert" artwork and this was the first time since 1942 (with the exception of 1985) that a "Follow Rupert" page had not been part of the annual.
