Before She Was Mine

I'm currently reading a great book at the moment - Before She Was Mine, by Kate Long.

I love all of Kate's books anyway, but for a Ladybird Book lover, there's often an additional motivation: spot the Ladybird Book reference.

A fan of Ladybird Books herself, I've noticed there's often a sneaky reference to a Ladybird Book or two in Kate's novels.

So here's a new Spring challenge for you. Enjoy an uplifting book and play hunt the reference, at the same time.

I also see there's an article on Kate in the Mail today - although she has unaccountably failed to fit in a LB reference into this piece!

I do love Ladybird books! So it's nice to reference them in my own work.

Thanks, Helen!

Ladybird Books are one of those iconic series along with I-Spy and Observer books from the youth of those approaching retirement. I don't think Charles Tunnicliffe's Nature books and Noel Barr's ten Animal Series books will ever be bettered.
