My youngest son keeps returning to my brother (his
uncles) dog eared ancient Beano book from years gone by with earnest so I was
so happy he was sent a refreshed 2015 annual to treasure. He seems to relate well to the character of
Dennis the Menace, as he can be quite mischievous when he wants to be and very
are ideal for Christmas, I used to get one every year from my parents so I like
having the same tradition in our household.
The Beano 2015 annual is currently only £3.95 on Amazon, so a bargain at
that price! You can soon pad out
Christmas with a few clever purchases like this. Plus when my boys are absorbed in a book peace reigns supreme,
they settle down nicely and get drawn into the pages. Normally its like a wrestling match 24/7 otherwise.
The front cover of the annual has
Dennis the Menace and Gnasher catching the Beanotown Express train
from London’s St Pancras station
and to coincide with that some fun and mischief was planned there. You can still make the Friday activity,
which is a Beano author Q&A
session, ideal for some half term entertainment perhaps! But if you cannot make that there is an
exhibition of old annual covers and a few photo opportunities to be had so well worth a visit regardless.
The Beano is full of humour and makes
me feel very nostalgic, I am glad to see my youngest enjoy it so much. Lots of the usual suspects make a come back
too such as Minnie the Minx and Roger the Dodger, a real trip down memory lane
for us adults. The cartoon strip with
Dennis the Menace as a baby was quite entertaining, he was always somewhat of a
handful bless him!
cheeky little boys and wistful parents you cannot go wrong with Beano.
