Llewellyn, Taffy. Taffy Llewellyn was created by “H. Philpott Wright,” the pseudonym of J. Weedon Birch (Jubal Grail, Lowden Heath), and appeared in at least forty-five stories in Vanguard Library from 1907 to at least 1909, possibly beginning with “Taffy Llewellyn’s Schooldays” (Vanguard Library, Jun 29, 1907).

Taffy Llewellyn is a schoolboy adventurer who attends Blackminster School but whose academic duties don’t prevent him from traveling around the world and fighting various bad men, meeting Billy Bunter, assisting Lowden Heath on several cases, defeating a Yellow Peril (the “Yellow Dragon”), and having lighthearted jousts with other schools.
