This classic UK comic is probably thought of more fondly by middle aged men than the boys that the Beano is aimed at. That's just a shame as it's still got all the terribly poor story lines and jokes that its always had, wrapped up in the colourful comic strip format and with the great cartoon drawings.
I know it's a cliche, but if you want to send your son, nephew or grandson some nice wholesome reading material that involves nothing worse than emptying buckets of cold water onto your neighbour's head (eeek), then The Beano or The Dandy are just the ticket.
If you want to send them something more activity based then have a look at Art Attack Magazine, failing that there are some really nice educational magazines at Newsstand such as Adventure Box.
We asked a little fellow called Cole what he thought of the Beano comic...this is what he said: "I think the Beano is funny, cool and good for learning how to get rid of people - it has gifts and jokes and it once taught me how to make a giant snowball". Cole has been given a copy of the Dandy and we expect his pearls of wisdom any day soon...
