Description: "Jayne Fisher is the youngest ever Ladybird author. She was only nine years old when she first started writing these charming stories about fruit and vegetable characters.
Jayne's bold, colourful felt-tipped pen illustrations are bound to appeal to young children and we can learn a few lessons from the characters in the 'Garden Gang'."

Pastedowns and endpapers illustrated with colour depictions of the characters featured in the series.

Glazed pictorial boards are lightly creased, and have some lovebites where the rear board meets the head of the spine. Corners bumped; spine only lightly so. First few pages are slightly creased (one or two have a negligible dog-ear). p.51 has a tendency to stick to the rear pastedown, but remains undamaged. Otherwise all pages are unmarked and in very good overall condition. Super-tight binding.

Previous price blocked over with a black ladybird device. This reprint dates from c.1985.

Measures 17.5 cm × 11.5 cm (7″ × 4.6″). 12mo. 51 pp.
