June Griffen-King only wrote one book for Ladybird, but that one is something of a classic. It was ‘Indoor Gardening’, published in 1969.

It was one of those books which, in my young eyes, was somehow indicative of how life should be. My half-term holidays should be spent doing elegant arrangements of minature plants within large glass bottles – not watching Scooby Doo and squabbling with my brother.

In a new page in the ‘writers and Artists section of my website, I’ve added an interview with June Griffen-King about her experience working for Ladybird in the late 1960s.
