Blackberry Farm books,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ernest Owl Starts a School (Blackberry Farm S.) (Hardcover)
Thank goodness it is possible to buy these lovely books.....the stories, the pictures are so delightful. But oh such a shame they are out of print now and even more of a shame that the little book format was abandoned - little books for little hands are perfect. I wish an enterprising publisher would seek to reproduce the Jane Pilgrim books and all the Ladybirds stores such as The green umbrella and Lost at the fair, Ned the lonely donkey. and The inquisitive harvest mouse..all only available as (often rather tatty) 2nd hand books. The illustrations of the Jane Pilgrim and early Ladybird books were stunning. Children really like good, clear pictures that look like the thing they are representing. Unfortunately today's Ladybird book illustrations are disappointing in many cases. At least there are still a handful of the Jane Pilgrim books available to delight a fresh generation, although no longer from conventional bookstores.
