Description: The first book in the legendary Ladybird Key Words series. Large text in a school handwriting font makes for very easy reading.
Beautiful full-page colour illustrations on every facing page.
Matt pictorial boards have been laminated by the school. Small school stamp on title page and front pastedown. Considering its age and provenance, the book is in remarkably good condition for a 40-year-old classroom copy. Pages are only lightly creased from handling – and there is some very faint foxing one on or two – but are in otherwise very good condition: free from scribbling or any other marking, and tightly bound.
Not a first edition, as there is an SBN (introduced in 1966) on the rear, and the
price of 2′6
Measures 17.5 cm × 11.5 cm (7″ × 4.5″). 12mo. 52 pp.
