Gulliver Little Books

At first glance, these look like run-of-the-mill Penguin books, right?  In fact, they're called Gulliver Little Books, and they were 1/3 the size of actual Penguin paperbacks!  These miniature books, which were obviously modeled on Penguin books, were produced during World War II in the UK for children.  They were miniature because of wartime rationing, which extended to paper.
