NB There is an error in the bibliography at the back of the W. E. Johns biography that lists Worrals Goes Afoot as published BEFORE Worrals in the Wastelands - but this is incorrect.

The dates for the two books given here relate to when the British Library received their copies and it is also quite clear from the content of the books that Worrals in the Wastelands was written before Worrals Goes Afoot.

 

All Lutterworth covers and Hodder and Stoughton covers are from my own collection of Worrals first editions.

 

The copyright in all of the images belong to the original publishers and artists.

 

THE SIX HODDER & STOUGHTON COVERS WERE BY LESLIE STEAD CLICK HERE TO READ ABOUT THIS GREAT ARTIST

 

The last four Lutterworth covers were by Reginald Heade (born Reginald Cyril Webb) 1901 1957, a well-known book illustrator.

 

I do not know which artists did the covers of the first two books, Worrals of the W.A.A.F and Worrals Carries On.

 

 

WORRALS FLIES AGAIN!

 

In May 2013 Indie Books reprinted the first three Worrals books! First published over 70 years beforehand!
