All wrapped in a wax paper jacket designed just like the old sticker packs.

I loved the GBK, had a tonne of the cards, and even liked the film!

Wow! Might have to get this book.

Collected them through the 1st and 2nd series.

They were banned in my school after one of the teachers took extreme offense to them. I think it was Acne Annie from the second series, which actually resembled said teacher a good bit.
