Description: 11c in the Key Words Reading Scheme introduces to children to the wide variety of books that are on offer – such as annuals, non-fiction, adventure stories, &c – and includes extracts from those in the Ladybird series (e.g. chocolate and cocoa). The Loughborough publisher also wasted no time in unashamedly advertising its books, as the illustrations on pages 17 and 30 depict Peter and Jane's personal collection of Ladybirds, and a nostalgic Ladybird stand in a bookshop, respectively.
Stunning, full-page colour illustrations on every facing page.
