The Joy Of Ladybird Books

December 07, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

One make of books that takes me back to childhood almost more than any other are Ladybird books. I still have so many, some from when I was a child, but many have been given to me over the years by friends whose children have grown up, for my children when they were younger. Even though the stories are rather dated now, my children loved them and I had such pleasure reading them again. 

One of my favourites was Mick The Disobedient Puppy who was a little poodle puppy always getting in to scrapes. However he managed to save his family from a fire and all was forgiven, he was the hero of the day. I loved this story as we had a little poodle too.

When I was at a jumble sale I discovered another Ladybird book from my childhood. It was in lovely condition and I couldn't resist buying it. It was called Tiptoes The Mischievous Kitten.

Every picture takes me back. It is a lovely little book telling the story of Mr Moffat who bought a kitten called Tiptoes as a present for his baby. Tiptoes is very naughty and Mrs Moffat is in despair. They discuss getting rid of her and she runs away only to return home a long time later a grown up and sensible cat with kittens of her own. 

I entirely blame Mr Moffat for being so irresponsible to buy a kitten as a present for a baby!

I'm sure everyone has a favourite Ladybird book and this is definitely mine! You can view all the Ladybird books in my collection Here
