Does anyone else out there remember Old Lob? I remember the books from Primary School in the early 50s 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 vivid 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. I remember the Old Lob books from about 1954, while I was in my infant school. I recall the dog's name was Mr Dan, the cow was Mrs Cuddy and there was a pig called Master Willie. The children were Ruth and John. I expect more will come to light as my memory rekindles.
