It is HIGHLY likely that thisscarce Hardcover version is the ONLY example you will find for sale on at the present time! Don't let it get away....who knows when you'll find another?
I don't normally stock Highlights later than the early to mid 1970's but being one of the scarce Hardcover editions I made an exception in this case.
Volume 34, NO. 9.

When I came across a group of the older ones for sale at I snapped them up and yup, these are the ones that have all the cool stuff I loved to read as a kid.
Who DOESN'T remember "Find the Pictures," "Hidden Pictures," "Goofus & Gallant,""What's Wrong?" "Headwork,""Aloysius," the riddles, quiz's, jokes, great stories of all types & subjects, biographies of famous people,and of course my personal favorite, "The Timbertoes?"
