All about Ladybirds

4th February 2015

Find out all about Ladybird books as we celebrate the centenary of this famous popular imprint. This talk coincides with the publication of The Ladybird Story by Brian Alderson and Lorraine Johnson, which traces the history of the Ladybird venture from its wobbly beginning through Wills & Hepworth's triumphant management of the series up to its sale in 1972, and its fortunes in the years following.

Publication: Johnson, L and Alderson, B. (2014) The Ladybird story: children's books for everyone. London: British Library.
