Jesus the Helper, 1960 was the first book to be issued in series 606a. (Other bible stories are to be found in an earlier Ladybird series: 522.)
It was written by Hilda Rostron, illustrated by Clive Uptton and was originally issued with a dustjacket. Uptton also produced many similar bible-story illustrations as the main illustrator for Treasure magazine and as a regular contributor to Look and Learn.
The odd spelling to his surname was to avoid confusion with another artist – to distinguish himself, he simply decided to double the ‘t’.
This matt copy is in in just fair-good condition. The spine is worn and has some minor damage and the corners and edges are also worn. There’s a name, a mark and an inscription on the front endpaper but the rest of the pages are clean. It dates to the early-1970s and the price of 15p on the back.
