Garfield books in Australia were produced by Budget Books in standard and landscape sizes (and one weekender size), and carded cover magazine sized books by Beaumont Books. There was also a short series published by 'Reed for Kids' Books.

I do not have images of all the books - if you can help with this, please email me.

Budget Books

There were at least two standard size series from Budget Books. The first was a numbered series denoted by a paw-print. The second was a numbered series that appeared to be identical to the Ravette books published in the UK. However, there were some exceptions and I have pictured these below.

Series 1 (Paw-print numbered series)
No 1 (1986)
No 2 (1986)
No 3 (1986)
No 4 (1986)
No 5 (1986)
No 6 (1986)
No 7 (1987)
No 8 (1987)
No 9 (1987)
No 10 (1987)
No 11 (1987)
No 12 (1987)

The longer landscape series were reprints of the UK Ravette Longer Landscape Series. However, there were at least two extra titles produced in Australia pictured below. "Domestic Bliss" is numbered as No 14 whilst "Parties On" is un-numbered. The UK Series only went to 13 books. The first 13 Australian versions although the same titles as in the UK, were in a slightly different number order.
