breaking bad

Old Ladybirds

Here are some super old Ladybird Book covers (and some other illustrations too) for sale as posters. These were the children's books when I was a little girl. I recognise loads of them:

Bunnikin's picnic party
Ginger's adventures
Mick the disobedient puppy
Red Riding Hood (I loved that one)
Tootles the taxi

Gosh, Tootles the taxi. I think I can remember the poem

I'm Tootles the Taxi
I'll give you a ride
Just lift up your hand
And jump inside

I'm Tony the tractor
And I work the land
... can't remember

Ah. I haven't seen these for about 45 years.

British Wild Animals. Look at how beautiful those pictures are. I pored over these books.

Our Land in the Making. A two book series where I first learned about History.

This is a massive nostalgia trip for me.
