There is a tag inside that says SARI FABRICS Made in England 1982.

I bought it around '84 or '85 and used it for .... a lunch box when I worked at Federal Express. Here is a size comparison pic. Nowadays it just holds Christmas stuff.

Cool. And "D'oh!" on the dog name -- Snowy (or Milou), not Sunny... I knew that but must have been thinking about Junior & Sunny comics or something.

Saw this thread and went digging for mine. This is the first time I learned that kids are the greatest threat to my books. All the spines have been ripped off by those little monsters. Sweet stories though.

As a kid I always particularly liked the shark sub in Red Rackham's Treasure.

That's right.....

 

Thompson with a "P" has a slight outward flair to his mustache..... but Thomson without a "P" has straight downward edges to his mustache

One has an outward mustache flair... To be precise: One has a mouthward flustered air.
