This Portuguese book is not a new title currently in print, but it is a new format I had never encountered until now, so I wanted to share. I have some books by this publisher (Verbo) but I think they were from the 1990s and have totally different covers and internal illustrations, and feature a white spine. This book appears to be an earlier incarnation of "Os inqueritos de Nancy" published circa 1983. It has a yellow spine and recycles the Rudy Nappi cover but has original internal illustrations (uncredited). I like this one of the Tophams whining at the attorney's office.
The back cover indicates that at least the first 4 titles may have come in this format.
