Oliver Cromwell, the Ladybird book

July 30th, 2009 (04:26 pm)

A non-LJ friend known on Twitter as tyger2000uk has pointed me towards a blog post celebrating the Ladybird 'Adventure in History', Oliver Cromwell. It reminds me of how I enjoyed the (already rather old-fashioned) series, particularly the L. du Garde Peach ones, even though there were oddities apparent even to a child - such as the statement in Warwick the Kingmaker that its subject was probably born in 'Wessex', a name long fallen from use in the fifteenth century.
