Collector's info:
The fact that the books were illustrated by the very collectable Lionel Edwards has pushed up the price of these titles. The easiest one of the three to find is Head High, Hands Low, the hardest one is Second Fiddle. None however are particularly common, especially if you want jacketed copies, and outside of the UK they may be extremely hard to get hold of.
