I am delighted to introduce a selection of highly collectable vintage Ladybird books to Get Smitten as I acquired an entire collection on a recent fabric and prop buying hunt!

The Ladybird books are an ubiquitous part of British childhood history. Since the 1940s, children have been learning from and with these well loved and beautifully illustrated hardback books, covering a multitude of subjects and themes. They have become highly sought after in recent years - particularly the 1970s versions

This listing is for a 1973 edition, matt hard back cover Ladybird book, from the Well Loved Tales series, entitled Dick Whittington an his Cat, retold by Vera Southgate with illustrations by Eric Winter

It is from the Series 606D collection, ISBN number 0721400825 with the printed price 18p on the reverse, first published in 1966

It is in excellent condition throughout with only minor scuffs to the spine, the pages are immaculate but evenly aged to an off white

"This is another well-loved tale in the Ladybird 'Easy-Reading' series.
Young children will enjoy having this story read to them, and seeing the delightful full-colour illustrations. Children who need extra reading practice will be encouraged by the clear type and relatively simple text."
