As we’re still in Olympics season I felt I ought to contribute this picture to the national mood. (You’re very welcome).  I don’t like these books, they do nothing for me and they’re really outside my period of interest (pre 1980s).  But one of them –  Naranjito – the mascot for the 1982 World Cup, has a matt cover and so just slips in to complete my set.  Then once you have one book from the set you sort of have to have others.  But I draw the line at Sydney 2000 – the Loughborough print works has been sold and not justification remains for me to even notice if other Ladybird Books were published for later Olympics.
