Penguin's 80th Birthday: The Little Black Classic.


In celebration of Penguin's 80th Birthday, they have released eighty of their most popular titles into their new range of 'little black classics'. And they are all available at the bargain price of 80p each. Yes, you read that right - you can buy each book for 80p.  Penguin was established in 1935 by, Sir Allen Lane and V. K.
