Wonderland Tales

Total Issues: 46

Even in its early run, this was a mixture of comics and fairy stories. Aimed at a 5-9 age-group at first, after around 10 issues it switched its aim to an older market (7-12) and introduced a number of school stories. Contributors included G.R. Hearn, Peter Cavan, Hilda Brierley, Jack Lewis, Basil Baldwin, Morton Pike, Henry T. Johnson, John Grenfell, Horace Philips, C. Louis Pearce; artists included Philip Swinnerton, Leonard Shields, Philip Hayward, J. Louis Smyth, and others. The title became Wonderland Tales Weekly after 46 issues, and the target audience was once again lowered.
