Rupert's early days
The first Rupert book, printed by Nelson was the Adventures of Rupert, the Little Lost Bear.
The Little Bear Library series of 46 books was produced in the 1920's and 1930's with black images on the yellow covers. In the 1970's 18 of these were reproduced, again with yellow covers, but these had a coloured picture on the front instead of the black images.
The 4 original "Monster Rupert" series were produced in the 1930's. Later "Monster Rupert" books were issued in the late 1940's. These were not reproductions as they had different stories than the original 4 but all used Mary Tourtel stories.

The 2021 AGM and Fun Day - Tavistock!
Held at an exciting new venue
As you will all know by now, Warwick School was not able to host our 2021 Event. Up stepped Charles Knape who as pulled out all the stops to organise an event for us at Kelly College in Tavistock.
It was an amazing success. Huge thanks to Charles. A full Review of the Day will appear in the Winter Nutwood Newsletter - but to be there and see the Rupert hot-air balloon inflated for what is likely to be the very last time was amazing. You can find a shorter review with photos and videos on this site. Look at the "Followers' AGM and Annual Fun Day" section below or just click here to go straight to the review.
