Mostly sold by Woolworth's at 3d each, these booklets helped distract children in air-raid shelters and Underground stations during bombing raids over London. Consequently they became known as 'Blitz' books and are scarce. The 3d price was subsidised by Saxa Salt, Kiwi Polish and Foster Clark's Custard Powder who advertised on the back covers. With 3 Bertram Mills Circus complimentary ticket booklets (1946, 1948)
