Fifties throwback

(Photograph) - Janet and John look-a-likes Hannah Moxon, 6, and Tre Pearce, 7, join TV presenter Emma Forbes to celebrate a new lease of life for the classic series. Publisher Star Kids has created modern counterparts to Janet and John, a familiar sight in the classrooms of the 50s and 60s. Th 33 new titles for four to seven-year-olds - including an eight-book reading scheme and maths, English and writing activity books - are pitched firmly at the home market of parents who read Janet and John in school before they disappeared in the mid-70s.
