I originally bought the Puffin set of postcards, and easily whiled away an evening going through them. Then I wondered if Ladybird did a similar thing - and was very pleased to discover they did.
My mum used to read me the rhyming animal tales when I was small, and I have very fond memories about so many of these books.
I wanted the set in order to decorate the 'lid' of a coffee table, and with 100 front covers to choose from there was plenty of choice.
My only criticism (and this is only a personal choice) is that there weren't enough covers of the story books I know and love - there were plenty of the information/reference books (though admittedly the ones for kids - my mum obviously just wanted to shut me up for ten minutes with a story rather than educating me!). But this is a totally personal preference, and I'm sure many others would be more than happy with the selection.
Even so, the covers are all very colourful and entertaining. I will probably use the remainders for more 'projects' or simply to mail to friends.
