    The stickers dropped out from my Photo Album . It must be a collectors item now. I dont seem to see any MAD Magazine in the book store. Maybe there is a value attached to the stickers now. Any offer ? 🙂

      SK, if Big Bad Wolf, which periodically organises fairs on the sale of books, is present in your locality, you should visit there. I once bought a Mad magazine Annual (albeit it was four years old) for the price of RM30.00. It was cheap considering the cover price said it was USD30. Other books (new) are sold from RM8 to less than RM20. Mad Magazine Annual, Book on Elvis Presley, etc are slightly more expensive. I was an avid fan of Mad Magazine during my school days but cannot buy them now. Beano and Dandy were also available for sale.

    At one of the previous fairs, I noticed quite a number of children visiting it. This is a good sign as the standard of English for the children should be improved. As I mentioned earlier, the price of the books are cheap ranging from RM8 to about RM20 except for the special editions. Considering that the books are in mint condition, they are good buys. Unfortunately, I will not be able to go as I do not reside in KL. Maybe you may be able to get your MAD magazine.

    One Christmas issue, Mad rewrote the lyrics for ‘Santa Claus is Coming to Town’. Unfortunately, I only recall the first verse:

    ‘You better not fret
    You better not jeer
    We’re ‘gonna upset
    Tradition this year
    Santa’s wife is coming to town!’…

      She won’t use any reindeer
      To pull the sleigh because
      She wants to show you who’s in charge
      So she’s using Santa Claus!

    Hi Friends, Made it to Big Bad Wolf. Good to see so many parents & children buying books for them.Good for the children instead of playing Computer Games. Saw one young boy carrying a MAD cover print. Asked him where & told me in Fiction area. Saw many X Men , Garfield but no Mad magazines. Asked the counter & found the last copy. All other Mad prints were sold out. No Beano & Dandy. Asked the counter staff , they didnt know what there were. Well, shall keep this copy & in 20 years, it will be a collector’s item:). Thanks SY for the Book Fair info.:)
