Okay this old comic came from my moms possesion after she had passed. She knew I like collecting things so asked that I take it. I know this is old and ragged being printed in 1957. I want to know if any members here can translate this for me. I believe it is from Sweden as part says helsinki in another area of this comic. It has comics, crafts, and stories in it. Can someone tell me the title please? And if there'as collectors out here can you tell me what it's worth? Thanks in advance. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

This is the prove that the word "Lasten Maailma" is FINNISH LANGUAGE;- http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B000J4Y7JW/ref=sr_1_olp_4/103-4354222-5222242?ie=UTF88s=books&qid=11922394&sr=1.4 So the meaning for LASTEN MAAILMA, is; http://www.ectaco.com/English-Finnish-Dictionary LASTEN = Junior MAAILMA = World, Universe, Earth, Realm CONCLUSION;- Lasten Maailma = Junior World. Sorry Grandpa Bob, it took more time for me to do the searching because I cannot do the copy & paste yet to make a good answer and the references to your question. Thanks.

Helsinki is Finland, Grandpa Bob. I will have my Bob look at your picture, as his distant family is from Finland, and he grew up in a community where Finlander was spoken, and still is. I had no idea that there was a large Finnish population in the US, or that they had contributed so much to modern art, philosophy, engineering and literature. Oh well, I married this guy and now I have learned a lot. Like I said, when he is through cooking supper for me, I will make sure he looks. The words I see resemble a lot of the words I have seen on other things in his family and in Crystal Falls. Do not know if he can translate, though.
