Cloth. Various book specific multi-colored illustrations with the title and author lettered on the front cover. Dust jacket is brown uncoated duplicating the picture and lettering on the front cover. 7.75 x 5.5.

Series Notes:
1. The frontispiece illustrator of Miss Toosey's Mission and of Laddie was Walter Cooper Bradley. The internal illustrations were done by Brill.
2. Weir did some illustrations in The Story of the Robins.
3. Although only #11 Jessica's First Prayer and #8 Miss Toosey's Mission have been seen with two different covers, it is entirely possible other books have two covers. A case in point is that the jacket seen with Laddie is different from the underlying cover. It is presumed that there is also a cover matching the picture on the Laddie's jacket. The cover and jacket of Laddie are shown here.
4. The illustrations of the earlier editions are on glossy paper whereas in the later editions the illustrations are on plain paper.

Another advertising flyer has been discovered. It is for Series #100- Good Times Series.

This flyer is 8 x 5.5 which is slightly larger than the page size of the actual Good Time Books. It was discovered within a book from the series.
