Ladybird books are known and loved the world over. For millions of people, they bring back the golden days of childhood – learning to read, discovering the magic of books, and growing up.


Today, Ladybird Books retains its position as one of the UK’s best-known children’s publishers and has a wide range of books for both children and adults. Adult gift purchases include vintage facsimiles of favourite books from the archive, from Well-Loved Tales to Adventures from History; the box set Postcards From Ladybird, plus design books such as Ladybird By Design and Ladybird: A Cover Story.

Suitable from birth – 7 years, Ladybird’s range of current children’s publishing includes innovative baby and toddler books, reading schemes and early learning titles, and perennially popular characters such as Topsy and Tim and Peppa Pig. All can be found at

 I’m afraid we are unable to buy or sell second-hand vintage editions, and cannot advise on value.
