has been a hard task trying to source information on most of
the Ladybird authors and illustrators, as many of them were
one-off writers / illustrators - some of the authors were in
fact teachers, scientists, or professionals in a certain field,
who had lent their expertise to Ladybird books.
If you are have any information regarding any Ladybird author
or illustrator then please get in touch - We are particularly
keen to find information regarding:
Vera Southgate - author of the popular
the 'Well Loved Tales' A J Magregor - author and illustrator of
the early 401 books Muriel Levy - author of the 'Wonk' series
& some early 413 books Jayne Fisher - author of the 'Garden Gang'
books Dorothy Richards - author of the 'Tasseltip'
book from series 474 Noel Barr - author of the early 497 books
When Ladybird illustrator Harry Wingfield died in 2001 at the age of 91 a legal battle followed between the Wingfield family and Ladybird regarding the copyright ownership of his Ladybird illustrations
