It 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
