We have a request via Twitter! Can anyone identify this book? Can't find any obvious "Beaver Book of"...

"Does anyone remember the kids paperback imprint Beaver Books from the 70s and 80s? Does anyone remember a book they did called 'Amazing Stories' or something similar. All supposedly non fiction, included PT Barnum, the San Francisco fire and WW1 5th Norfolks marching in to cloud"
