"Schoolfriend" was the biggest-selling girls' comic throughout the '50s, followed closely by the slightly more modern "June", then publishers Fleetway combined the two in the 1960s, keeping the most popular features of each. And this book is a wonderful collection of the best of those, from the 1960s and 1970s. There are comedy capers with Bessie Bunter, the funniest girl in school; uplifiting tales of triumph over terrible adversity with "The Girl with Big Feet"; the heart-wrenching ordeals of "Emma in the Shade - the girl who is a nobody", and thrilling short stories such as Gwenda's "Desperate Ride". All this, plus fashion, advice, competitions and charming pinups of beautifully groomed dogs, "The Best of June and Schoolfriend" is a wonderful oasis of innocence from times past.
