I have hundreds of books for sale (or swap). All types and conditions - from cheap and cheerful reading copies to smart dust-jacketed collectors books. I shall list as many as I can here. But do contact me if you're looking for something in particular or have any questions.

This is the story so far. I have listed books broadly by subject but indicated series number as well. On each page a change of font colour indicates a change of series. But as ladybird often issued the same books in different series this is only meant to be a rough guide. I've added the date the title was first published so you'll know if a book is the edition you're looking for. Price varies according to scarcity of book, condition and, in short, how hard I find to part with it! If there aren't any details about a book you would like, it's just that I haven't got around to listing it yet.

Boring stuff about buying books

When I give details of a book I first say if the boards are matt or laminated (lam). I then indicate the ORIGINAL price of the book, the 'tally' number (if stated) and the condition. Finally I state the cost of the book to buy(not including post and packing). I always try to keep the cost of p&p right down. Typically when sending a book in the UK I charge 65p for one ladybird book sent 2nd class, 85p for two books , 1.05p for 3 books etc. For larger orders in the UK, Standard Parcel is often cheaper. I can only accept PayPal, cash, UK cheques or postal orders. From abroad, only PayPal or cash. Sorry. If you aren't happy with a purchase, send it back and I'll refund. OK Boring stuff over. Now the books:
