You may remember a post last year about 'the never-open bookshop'; well, the shop changed hands and now, to judge by the ever-changing window display, sells a rather interesting selection of old books (and some recently published ones) including many for children such as these lovely Ladybirds.
We had some of these when we were young, and I have one or two still, though we clearly missed a trick by failing to buy Helping at Home for our own brood.
I pass this window every day and always stop to look. They usually have a lot of natural history books and Scottish things along with the children's, but while prices are not often visible, the ones I've seen seem high - maybe they are collectors' editions.
Who could resist Ned the Lonely Donkey? I'd like to know more about Mick The Disobedient Puppy as well, and I'll bet The Farm brings back the countryside as I knew it when I was small. Ah well ...
