In my childhood bedroom, in the Northern valley town of Darwen, I had a cabin bed. It was red and white, and underneath it had a desk and a wardrobe and a secret tunnel in which I hid sweets. Running along the top edge of this bed was a wall frieze featuring this exact set of Ladybird alphabet images. For years, I looked at these ever more tattered pictures, and seeing them again in this book was the strangest thing. I know each one so well. Of all the books I've found in charity shops, and I must have bought over 100 now, this is definitely the most exciting. And all that nostalgia and retro graphics for the grand sum of 30p!Type King, I thought it was a lovely piece for £4.50.
