It will come as no surprise to regular visitors to that the winner of this year’s Wise Robin Christmas ladybird quiz (see posting below) is Nicole.
Let nobody doubt that Nicole knows her Ladybird stuff; she has been a regular winner of this annual Christmas quiz.

The two pictures above were the interlopers in the video montage. As Nicole correctly pointed out, they are both ‘Jack and Jill’ books and not ‘Ladybird’ at all. In the 1960s Fleetwood tried to emulate the success of Ladybird Books by issuing the J&J series using almost exactly the same design and layout. I can’t remember how many titles were issued – but fewer than 20 and they weren’t in print for many years.

Happy New Year
