This Month - Travelling on the Underground - Contributed by Theresa

I spent many of my younger days travelling to and from London both for work and pleasure.

I knew how to get to different stations, I knew where the interchanges were and which were the busier stations (although at Rush Hour everywhere was busy) all without consulting that iconic Tube Map – it was practically second nature!

Strip Books contributed by Adam

What is a strip book?
Having searched the internet, I don't seem to be able to find an answer so this is how I define a strip book:

  1. It has to be oblong format

  2. Nearly always paperback format

  3. There is more than one picture per page, with just a few words below telling the story.

  4. They are typically small in size, around 15-20cm across and 7-10cm deep.
