Captivating Cover: Roof of the World

I have no idea what this book is about, but if I’m judging a book by its cover, I think I need to find out. How can it not be amazing if Cobra encounters a Yeti?

Maybe one of our UK readers can shed light on it. I know the Ladybird licensed offerings like Masters of the Universe were storybook affairs, with painted illustrations along with text. Was Action Force done in the same format? And did Cobra come out on top after their encounter with the Yeti? I need to know!


  • Hello, hello.
    I remember this one. Ladybird did a set of audio cassettes with some these books. I had a different one – “Action Force Go West”. Some were original stories to go in tandem with the cassettes sold with the story books.

    See this link:

    For more details. Others in the series were sold as books only; they contained screenshots from the G.i.joe cartoon episodes by Sunbow and acted as illustrated versions of those episodes – “Spy In The Cobra Camp” was another book I had and was like that.

    If you’ve ever seen the Ladybird book of Transformers The Movie it’s very similar.

    Hope that helps.

  • This would be a good cover to revisit around Halloween. Scary!
