I LOVED this book as a kid. It had a huge impact on my life long love of Art. I went on to do a Fine Art degree and paint when ever I get time to! I teach painting and other Art skills now.

I suddenly remembered this Ladybird book when I was reading a review of Julia Donaldson’s book, and I realised I’d read the story before! My Ladybird copy must be long gone, but thank you so much for putting it up here!
