Only the 1968 edition was shorter at 124 pages- every other edition is 128 pages!
Sure it's not just missing a couple of pages? (!)

So this opens up the possibility, Alan, that even yours may not have a This Book Belongs To page.

I just dug out my copy of the 1968 Sparky book, and my copy has the "This Book belongs to..." page

I can reassure Raven that the Sparky book 1979 has no "this book belongs to" page.

edited to add: you don't need to count all the pages, just count 16 pages (including cover) and the next page should have a "B" in one of the corners.
Is it weird to have no interest in keeping or collecting free gifts?

I think they did away with the "This Book Belongs To" page in late 70s! I must try and fight my way into the loft (Past all that scraped off old wallpaper mounting up just below!) and check! Apologies for confusion . . . my memory obviously still playing up a bit!

Toxteth! I got down my 1979 book from loft. If you have at page four, the word `Sparky` lit from below by searchlights, they your book is complete! Page 4 is now a title page! Hope that helps! Alan.
