The Ant and Bee stories by Angela Banner were first published in the 60s and 70s. They are completely bonkers, but simple early readers featuring an ant with walking stick and bowler, a bee with a moustache and umbrella and a kind dog called Kind Dog – as well as a little girl who has red plaits as I did as a child.
Anyway – the amazing, fabulous news is that Egmont have just reissued two of the books in their original format – available to buy anywhere books are retailed.
I love the Ant and Bee books. Such a shame that they are out of print.
Egmont have just reissued a couple of them this year. I have reissues not originals.
