Dick And Dora

Dick And Dora

Dick And Dora was a series of primary school reading books, very much like the Janet And John, Peter And Jane or Topsy And Tim series, from the the mid-1960s, but they can still be found dog-eared and slightly dusty on the shelves of many modern-day school libraries. They had unique illustrations, I remember, making use of stylistic shading.

Nip the dog and Fluff the cat were largely featured in the Dick And Dora books, and remember all of them running together a lot of the time. And because they ran alot (like children used to), they got to see a lot of the world and have great adventures together. The Dick And Dora series was so simple compared to today's books, but they really got your imagination going.

    The above picture on the left takes me straight back to school.....I seem to remember that page. I found the books boring because I always loved reading and needed more. I had these books at school from 1955.....

    I thought I was the only person who remembered these school books. Good to see I'm not. I grew up in Glasgow and attended primary school from 1968 to 1973 and fondly remember these books. Great memories, thank you

    I think there was also a penguin called Plop. Weren't the Dick and Dora books published under the name "Happy Venture" books?

    I read Dick and Dora at school. I was born in 1968 and have been trying to find a copy of my old school reading books. I also remember Janet and John.

    I remember reading the Dick and Dora books in primary school in the mid 60's, but I don't know anyone else who does. Everyone else remembers the Janet and John books, which I never read.
