Rupert´s Winter Journey is a Alfred Bestall story originally appeared in the daily paper from January to March 1943, when war time economy meant only one episode per day, so it took a long time for the adventure to reach a conclusion.

It ended successfully after 28 episodes with Rupert’s safe return home. Rupert and Bill had been swept off to sunnier climes by Sailor Sam, so they enjoyed better weather than if they had remained in Nutwood.
