This Ladybird Book about the story of Nelson is a gem from the Ladybird vintage archive. First published in 1957, this is a classic Ladybird hardback book, packed with information about one of the most famous sailors in British history. This new edition, published alongside the Story of Napoleon more than two centuries after the Battle of Trafalgar, is exactly the same as the original, with a dust jacket and beautifully reproduced images. The story of Nelson is told dramatically by L. du Garde Peach, and his adventures are wonderfully illustrated throughout.
Ladybird brings together characters from well-loved children's TV shows such as Peppa Pig, In the Night Garden, Ben and Holly and the lively twosome Topsy and Tim; plus a whole host of fairy tale favourites like Cinderella and Pinocchio. Sharing a Ladybird story with your child is a great way to start exploring the big, wide world. Whether they're discovered through snuggly bedtime favourites, buggy books that accompany adventures or fun apps for playtime, really great stories open up whole new worlds and spark imagination, creativity and curiosity.
