Read the ‘Misty’ 1979 Holiday Special. It was 40p for 64 pages. ‘Old Ethna’s House’ is good with a neat twist about the mad old biddy who lives on the edge of the moor. ‘The Sea Maid’ sees a girl learn of a local superstition in this dull tale. ‘The Swan-Song’ was a dull tale of a swan. ‘The Magic Paintbrush’ was daft. ‘The Curse Of The Roman Sword’ was an okay tale.

‘The Prize!’ saw a girl enter a competition run by the patronisingly named Disabled Children Society. The twist is the girl is faking being disabled. Then there is another twist. ‘The Pipe Dream of Marty Scuttle’ sees a would be Pied Piper eaten by rats. Silly.

Best Line:
“Take their confounded road and factories elsewhere-”
