 The Definitive Guide to Ladybird Books
They are known and loved throughout the world and for millions of people, they bring back the cosy and colourful days of childhood - learning to read, discovering the magic of books, and growing up.

2000 was a very special year for Ladybird children's books as it marked 60 years since they published their first book for series 401, Bunnikin's Picnic Party (1940).

Ladybird books have since become known for their unique 56 page 'pocket sized' mini-hardbacks which remained at a constant price of 2'6 Net for over 25 years.

The books have been published in over 60 languages with sales round the world topping 30 million each year. In the 1980s, market research showed that Ladybird were the most recognisable brand in children's books.

Their best sellers include the Well Loved Tales, the Key Words Reading Scheme, Adventures from History, and the Achievements series.
