Good stuff. Will avoid comments like the plague - blood pressure doesn't need any more spiking with all the UKIP guff today hmm

Brilliant news. Will avoid comments from the Torygraph crowd

I don't understand the comments. What could be BAD about this? How does this move from Ladybird hurt anyone?

What's rubbish feel1612?

I have a handful of Ladybird books still on my shelves (mine, rather than a child's) - the books which made some impression on me. Elizabeth Fry and Florence Nightingale are both "Adventures in History" and Marie Curie is "Lives of the Great Scientists".

(These Ladybird books are among the reasons I'm a feminist, so I don't think they've had a bad gender record, unless it all went downhill after the 1970s.)
