Girls' and Boys' Penny Magazine

Total Issues: 36

"An almost identical magazine (to Boys' and Girls' Penny Magazine) appeared on the market with a similar title.

Apart from the main story there were interesting articles on hurricanes, the Great Wall of China, the transformation of insects and short contributions by the famous Theodore Hook." (W.O.G. Lofts, "The Start of Boys' Papers")
