  • Peter van Lune has the following announcement to make:

    " If all goes well, by December/January my book about the history of the FROG PENGUIN range will be published and available. The book will have about 200 pages and about the same number of color/bw photos. FROG, as you may know, was started in 1932 by Charles and John Wilmot, with Joe Mansour. My book has been written with the aid and cooperation of Avril Bardoni, daughter of Charles, and Jeremy Manser, son of Joe. I have also been very fortunate with the help of Richard Lines, co-author of the magnificant book on FROG published in 1989 - currently 89 years old but still going strong. He helped me answering many questions and providing documents, etc. The book will contain many unpublished photos, documents, etc. and all the advertisements I could find relating to the Penguin range. "
