Ladybird Fly Away Home -

dedicated to old Ladybird Books


They say that parody is the greatest compliment.

In the last few years has seen the arrival of numerous books under the name: Ladybird Books for Grown-Ups, and similar. Many people have got a bit confused and think these pastiche books are 'real' Ladybird books. Here's my quick tour of the Ladybird parody.

Here's a parody of the Series 401 Animal Rhyming poems, such as 'Piggly Plays Truant' and 'Smoke and Fluff'.

Next, a parody of the Peter and Jane Key Word Reader books that so many of us grew up with.
