    Bedtime Stories (UK)   (about)
    These issues are a bit of a puzzle. They could be either a Br. ed. or a USA ed. with a new publisher using different numbering system and pagination. The absence of coherent dates/issue numbers and the fact that most of the stories are reprinted from assorted other titles argues strongly for the former as this was quite a common practice at the time, and the v3 #6 issue has been seen with a UK price on the cover.
