Does anyone else out there remember Old Lob?
I remember the books from Primary School in the early '50's and the incredibly vivid illustrations live with me still. Apparently, for some strange reason, the books are as rare as hen's teeth now, although they must have been published by the thousand! (Perhaps mention of Percy the Bad Chick might jog the odd memory!)
I have vivd memories of learning to read with the Old Lob books when at my infant school in the late 50s. I also loved the pictures and the little captions with all the animals names, I particularly liked the dog and Mrs Cuddy the cow! I can remember a story about old Lob moving house and Miss Tibbs the cat running away to her old home it used to worry me until she got found on her old door step ! I also recall Mr Grumps the goat and Percy the bad chick, but can't remember what the dog was called. The covers were green/cream with squares and little pictures in each square.
