There have been lots of great couples in the world of School Reading Books, Peter and Jane, Simon and Elizabeth , Lok and Shan…….but how about Dick and Dora?


They featured in The Happy Venture reading scheme that was widely used in Australia  , designed by Fred J Schonell ( Wide Range Readers) , they also featured the family pets Nip and Fluff .


The Happy Venture scheme went through a few redesigns over the years , but managed over a 20 year usage in schools.
