Ladybird Books “Well Loved Tales” Cinderella & Little Red Riding Hood

From time to time I come across old children’s Ladybird books in charity shops, the little hardback ones from the 1960’s-70’s. I recently happened to find a couple from the “Well Loved Tales” series of fairy tales and they reminded me how much I used to love the illustrations.

On searching for images of all the books from this series I realised I must have owned or borrowed quite a few as a child, but there were also some that I had never seen before.

Find out more about the original Well Loved Tales books over on Retro Musings.


Ebay is a good source to add to my collection, but there is nothing quite like finding these little treasures hidden away in a charity shop!
